Mike Edgar, BBC Northern Ireland Executive Producer, said: "This is a music series for those who truly love the art of great songwriting and music making.

"I am especially thrilled that Other Voices is featuring so much home grown talent such as Soak, Neil Hannon, Little Bear, Katherine Phillipa, Best Boy Grip and, of course, Bronagh Gallagher – this is a truly significant contribution to Derry~Londonderry UK City of Culture with performances that will be remembered for years to come."

The show's producer, Philip King of South Wind Blows productions, said: "This has been the best musical trip of my life, uplifting and inspirational.

"We made great friends, took the spirit of Dingle on the road North along the Atlantic highway to the singing City of Derry, one of the most musical places on the planet, Soak got on the bus in Dingle and stayed on board for the London set.

"Dingle, Derry, London, what a trip... Let's do it all over again."
