Born in London but raised in Birmingham, Mike Skinner first rose to fame with the release of his 2001 Mercury Music Prize-nominated debut album Original Pirate Material. 2023 project The Darker the Shadow the Brighter the Light is said by The Streets to be his first official full-length solo outing since 2011’s Computers and Blues. His impact on UK grime, and the idea of working class culture and masculinity, has been lauded the world over.
Following the release of her silky smooth second album IRL earlier this year, Leicester R&B star Mahalia will grace the OV Home stage for the very first time.
Critically and commercially acclaimed, the talent's new project IRL features sparks of excellence from Stormzy, Joyce Wrice, Kojey Radical, Destin Conrad, and JoJo - with polished production from Raye, JD. Reid and more. Having made one of her first-ever television performances with us in Dingle back in 2015, we can’t wait to welcome the 25-year-old singer-songwriter and actor home to the OV Stage at James' Gate on 21 November.
UK-based indie-pop supergroup Fizz will also stop by the Home of Guinness to perform their first ever Irish gig! The band of four friends features Dublin's own Orla Gartland, a hugely successful producer and singer-songwriter in her own right who is back after smashing her Dingle debut in 2021.
Fellow musicians Dodie, Greta Isaac and Martin Luke Brown to complete the collective. Born out of love and blind optimism, FIZZ came together in a whirlwind of pure joy and escapism. They'll be treating us to bangers from their recently released debut album The Secret To Life.
THE BONNY MEN
Since 2011, The Bonny Men have earned a reputation as a band with an electrifying stage presence. Having recorded three studio albums, the group took more than a decade of their collective experience and created music that walks the fine line between trad and a vibrant contemporary sound - all underpinned with unique driving arrangements.
The Bonny Men features the Lyons brothers, Conor and Barry; sister and brother, Natalie Ní Chasaide and Maitiú Ó Casaide, Adam Whelan, Turlough Chambers, Moss Landman and a new member in the form of sean nós singer Roisín Chambers. Don't miss the seven-piece outfit's thrilling set this month Other Voices: Home.
The Liberties is a flourishing hub of poetry, storytelling and song in itself - a microcosm of the island's creativity. Shining a spotlight on Ireland's well of spoken word talent, Other Voices and The Guinness Storehouse are delighted to invite playwright and poet Dagogo Hart to OV Home.
The Dublin-based writer, performer, and spoken-word artist's poetry is inspired by his hometown in Lagos and his experiences since moving to Ireland from Nigeria in 2010. Hart started working with words at the age of 13, honing his craft with rap group Domack before coming to Tralee in 2010. Since transitioning from rap to poetry, Hart hasn't looked back - appearing at festivals nationwide and earning Poetry Ireland commissions on the theme of 'home'.
The talented playwright’s new project Mmanwu had its world premiere at Dublin Fringe Festival 2023 this past September, after receiving dramaturgical mentorship from Fishamble’s Literary Manager Gavin Kostick. Dagogo Hart joins us for what is is sure to be breathtaking performance at the Home of Guinness.
Morgana is a Dublin based singer-songwriter who, after early praise from Joan Armatrading and Gary Lightbody, began making music with Gemma Doherty as Saint Sister in 2015. Their two self-released albums, 'Shape of Silence' (2018) and 'Where I Should End' (2021) were met with widespread critical acclaim, both nominated for the Choice Music Prize and the latter winning the Northern Irish Music prize and reaching the top 10 in the Irish album charts.Saint Sister have showcased across the world; opening for Robbie Williams in Hyde Park, performing in the Elysee Palace, and toured with Tori Amos, Hozier, Lisa Hannigan & Keane.
2023 has seen the launch of Morgana’s solo project. Her first show was a sold-out show in Brooklyn’s Nowhere with Sorcha Richardson. The Belfast native, full name Morgana MacIntyre, made her Irish debut to a packed room at Ireland Music Week and the following week sold out headline shows in NYC and Dublin within hours.
