eir Other Voices returns to Kerry this December 1, 2 and 3, clocking up the 16th installment of the world-renowned TV series recording sessions that reverberate around St. James’ Church in Dingle, later edited and broadcast on RTE2 and around the world as Other Voices, Ireland’s longest running music TV series.

Over the years a dynamic, eclectic, free music and arts festival has flourished alongside the TV recordings in Dingle, broadening the musical offering, introducing spoken word, artistic and theatrical elements, taking the eir Other Voices experience beyond the tiny capacity of the Church sessions and bringing it to the thousands of music fans from home and abroad, who brave the mercurial winter weather of the Wild Atlantic Way to immerse themselves in a weekend of glorious musical diversity.

Waxing Lyrical

Using the cassette tape and its innards as a medium, the artists unravel human stories of love and loss, nostalgia, found sound, human consciousness, and more.  While some of the artists in this show have been challenged to explore the medium for the first time, others have made art inspired by tapes for decades.  There is also a focus on Brian Hegarty's contemporary Irish cassette label thirtythree-45, as well as archival specimens of the '80s and early '90s compilation tape era from DJ Cian O'Cíobháin.
