The fabulous Glassworks building is once again playing host to a galaxy of local and international musical talent this coming weekend. Other Voices is once more in Derry!
The event will be streamed live to a number of local venues while the Banter Sessions and the IMRO Other Room will also be filmed in the City of Song. The hugely popular Other Voices Music Trail will run in venues and spaces across the city, bringing the spirit of Other Voices to neighbourhoods and communities across the Derry City Council area.
Aidan Gillen will once again host the show, presenting the recordings and events in both Dingle and Derry. Some of the artists scheduled to perform are David Gray, Hozier, Lisa O’Neill, Mogwai, Patty Griffin, John Grant, Asgeir, Agnes Obel and Lulu James, alongside many more.
Mayor of Derry, Cllr Martin Reilly said: ‘I am delighted that Other Voices is set to return to the city following the success of the event during our 2013 UK City of Culture celebrations, an event which achieved phenomenal success in terms of involving local talent and showcasing our city to an international audience. This opportunity will build on community involvement, educational programmes and national and international showcase for local talent from this city as well as inviting visitors to see what Derry has to offer.’
Tickets, once again, will be free and can be won through various online and media competitions so check out the website http://www.othervoices.ie/ Stay up to date with announcements by logging onto the site and follow on Facebook ‘Other Voices’ and Twitter @othervoices
