Two Music: Other Voices Live
Season 11 of the prominent Other Voices music TV series will broadcast on RTÉ Two from Wednesday 8th May with eight programmes of unique performances, intimate acoustic sets and interviews by presenter Aidan Gillen.
This season, Other Voices travelled from St James' Church, Kerry through The Glassworks, Derry to Wilton's Music Hall, London for 3 weekends of marvelous music.
Speaking of that journey, executive producer Philip King 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".
An eclectic mix of international and Irish acts took to the stage across the 3 venues including the likes of The Unthanks, Kodaline and Local Natives from Dingle; Marina & The Diamonds, Little Bear and Savages from Derry and John Grant, Villagers and Laura Marling from London.
