Northern Irish singer/ songwriter Foy Vance and up and coming artist George Ezra will be taking to the stage when Other Voices comes back to Derry next month, it has been announced today.
Vance and Ezra will appear alongside Poliça and Bell X1 on stage at The Glassworks on the the weekend of 7-9th February.
Foy Vance will undoubtedly wow audiences with the delivery of one of his passionate performances. His album ‘Joy of Nothing’ just recently won the Northern Ireland Music Prize for Album of the Year and he has been touring alongside Ed Sheeran to great acclaim.
Bristol born, George Ezra, who is hotly tipped as a ‘next big thing’ in 2014 performed as part of the IMRO Other Room during last year’s series. His single Budapest is currently filling the airwaves both here and in the UK.
As well as the legendary intimate performances in The Glassworks, Other Voices 2014 will see the return of IMRO Other Room and The Music Trail, bigger and better than before.
Potential performers are reminded that the open call for applications to this year’s IMRO Other Room and Music Trail remains open until tomorrow, Friday 10th January at 12noon. To apply visit othervoices.ie/opencall
