As a festival full of discoveries and surprises Other Voices is proud to partner with Lonely Planet for it’s fourteen year and to announce the next group of artists who will descend upon the beautiful town of Dingle, on the Wild Atlantic Way, between Friday 4th – Sunday 6th of December 2015.The filming of the fourteenth series of Other Voices, which will air on RTÉ2 next year, will happen as always in the 800 year old, St. James’ Church. The next five acts to be announced are as follows:
LOW will travel from Minnesota to make their highly anticipated Other Voices debut. The band will perform new music from their spellbinding album ‘Ones and Sixes’. LOW will always be considered the quintessential ‘slowcore’ band. Rarely do bands make it into their third decade. LOW have the stamina and the creative drive to make yet another compelling and beautiful album
Known for his atmospheric live performances and poetic lyrics, Keaton Henson will showcase his delicate, haunting material for the first time in the suitably intimate setting of St. James’ Church.
Longtime friend of Other Voices, singer-songwriter Glen Hansard will return to Dingle to play music from his critically acclaimed new album ‘Didn’t He Ramble’. Glen most recently celebrated 25 years of The Frames with sold out shows in Dublin and Cork.
Awarded the title of BBC Introducing: Artist of the Year 2015, multi-instrumentalist Jack Garratt will enchant viewers with his unique blend of soulful vocals and irresistible electronic sounds.
One of the most exciting indie-rock acts to come out of Ireland in recent years, The Academic blew up the airwaves last summer with their infectious single Different. This December they will play St. James’ Church for the first time.
More additions will follow in the coming weeks. Tickets for St. James’ Church are free and can be won through competitions listed on othervoices.ie
