Music | Other Voices returns to Dingle this weekend

Other Voices

It’s been a long road for Other Voices, but returning from 4-6 December 2016.

Over seventy acts of all genres will play free gigs in a variety of venues around the beautiful town of Dingle, which is wonderfully situated on the Wild Atlantic Way.

The filming of the fourteenth series of Other Voices, which will air on RTÉ2 next year, will happen as always in St. James’ Church).

If you have not got one of those golden tickets for the church sessions, the  Music Trail will feature new and established bands playing in unusual venues around Dingle. All events take place before and after the church shows, which are live streamed from St. James’ Church guarantees a seat for everybody and an electric atmosphere in many of the town’s pubs.

Also note that all Music Trail and Banter @ Foxy John’s are events free and open to the public over the weekend.

Acts to see:

Richard Hawley

Richard returns to Other Voices for the first time since 2011, and will perform songs from “Hollow Meadows” his recently released album.

Gaz Coombes

Recently Mercury Prize-nominated for his album “Matador”, Gaz Coombes (lead singer with Supergrass) will play Other Voices for the first time.

Gavin James

Following a US tour with Sam Smith, singer-songwriter Gavin James will be releasing his highly anticipated debut album on 20 November ahead of his Other Voices performance.  Rising very quickly indeed.

Otherkin

Out on the Music Trail last year at Other Voices, Irish rock band Otherkin have been making an impact both here and across the water with their debut single ‘Ay Ay’. The 201 EP is definitely worth checking out.

Rusangano Family

Recently picked up by NPR, Rusangano Family have been hugely successful on the Irish festival circuit in the past few years.

Elm

The Dublin based act have a dark earthy sound. If you like Daughter or The XX, then this is an act to check out on the Music Trail.

Bitch Falcon

Definitely one to watch in the coming months, if you want to shake up your Saturday night, get round to this show. Rocking band currently making waves, perhaps time to do the same on the Atlantic Way.
