Other Voices - RTÉ Player on 4th March featuring locations including Dingle!
Presented by May Kay and Huw Stephens, featured acts in this 10-week season of Other Voices include Hozier, Fontaines D.C., Elbow, Pillow Queens, Rhiannon Giddens, For Those I Love and more.
Hozier will kick off the season with an intimate, stripped-back, performance, featuring new string arrangements by Ireland's Crash Ensemble. Viewers can also expect an explosive performance from Choice Music Prize-nominated indie rock four-piece Pillow Queens, as well as a moving set of quiet gentle wonder drawn from 'Hemet', the feted debut from the magical Niamh Regan.
The series will include two special episodes: Grammy-nominated five-piece Fontaines D.C. will showcase their unique sound in the iconic location of Dublin's Kilmainham Gaol, while Other Voices fan favourites Elbow come to us from Ballina and Dingle.
Legendary Irish musician Damien Dempsey, renowned folk singer-songwriter Rhiannon Giddens, alt country musician CMAT and For Those I Love - the project of multi-instrumentalist & producer David Balfe - will also feature in the series.
Other Voices founder Philip King says: "The Other Voices series coming to you on television this year features a range of truly remarkable performances from Irish artists who opened their hearts and raised their voices in a powerful and emotional musical response to the events of what has been one of the most complex and difficult years in Ireland’s history. We have been so lucky to produce Other Voices this year, and it is a privilege to work with these amazingly talented and creative artists and with the wonderful crews that make them audible and visible."
