More acts have been announced for the Derry’s own Other Voices series in February, with the wonderful Two Door Cinema Club, Damien Dempsey, Savages and Bronagh Gallagher now added to the line-up alongside Marina & the Diamonds, Neil Hannon and Jesca Hoop.
Widely regarded as Ireland’s most intimate music TV event, Other Voices will take place in the city’s Glassworks in Great James Street from February 8-10 next year as part of the City of Culture celebrations, before moving to the Barbican in London.
Last weekend saw Other Voices’ annual festival take place in Dingle, with local artists Our Krypton Son and Soak drafted in from Derry to entertain the Co. Kerry masses and give a flavour of what’s to come in February.
Welcoming the most recent news, Shona McCarthy CEO, Culture Company 2013 said: “We are thrilled.”
Philip King, Executive Producer of Other Voices, added: “It’s wonderful to be invited to bring Other Voices all the way from Dingle, along the Atlantic corridor to Derry-Londonderry, the UK City of Culture 2013. Derry-Londonderry is a singing city, full of music and music-makers. We look forward to raising our voices with you in February.”
All Other Voices Derry tickets will be allocated to competition winners only. See: www.cityofculture2013.com for details.
