Other Voices Series 12
Series 12 began shooting last December in its spiritual home of St James' Church, Dingle Co Kerry and then headed North in February along that line of longitude that connects Dingle to Derry to set up shop for the second year in a row at The Glassworks, Derry. Both of these locations; the Dingle Peninsula and the Foyleside City of Derry provide a beautiful visual backdrop for brilliant musical performances.
Over six weeks, presenter Aidan Gillen will take you on a musical trip with each programme featuring a compelling soundtrack of songs, conversations and unique acoustic performances.
Other Voices Season 12 will feature one-off performances, intimate acoustic sessions and interviews with some well known artists including David Gray, George Ezra, Colm Mac Con Iomaire, John Grant, Bell X1, Mogwai, Patty Griffin, Agnes Obel, David Arnold; platform rising stars Hozier, The Gloaming, Ásgeir, Lisa O'Neill, East India Youth, Poliça, Public Service Broadcasting, Foy Vance, Walking On Cars and introduce new artists, Willis Earl Beal, The Amazing Snakeheads, The Bohicas, Josef Salvat, Little Matador, Rosie Carney, Samantha Crain and Lulu James.
Speaking of Season 12, executive producer Philip King said
"There is truly remarkable music in Ireland just now The Gloaming reached No1 and are acclaimed worldwide, Hozier and Walking On Cars are engaged with Major Labels and Publishers, Rosie Carney is a voice of the future. To capture and transmit brilliant new music from this Island to the world to have that music endorsed and mentored by some of the most exciting artists who come to Derry and Dingle is at the heart of what Other Voices is about"
