We’re delighted to announce that we are bringing some Other Voices magic to the Irish Embassy this October for London Calling

Hosted by Annie Mac, Other Voices: London Calling will bring together some of the world’s brightest voices to perform songs for the head + the heart live from London.

On the night, revered eclectic folk act The Unthanks make a long-awaited return to the Other Voices stage, almost a decade on from their celebrated performance in The Church of St James.  After a breathtaking Courage 2020 performance, Saint Sister return to play songs from their stunning new album ‘Where I Should End’. There will also be a special performance from pioneering folk multi-instrumentalist Michael McGoldrick, while Belfast raised platinum-selling artist Katie Melua takes to the Other Voices stage for the first time for what’s set to be an extraordinary live performance. 

Produced in collaboration with The Embassy of Ireland in London, Other Voices: London Calling aims to build a cultural bridge this autumn, celebrating the phenomenal breadth of Irish-Anglo talent taking over the global music scene. 

You can watch the show live at 9pm (GMT+1) on Friday October 29, from wherever you are in the world via YouTube, Facebook and the OV website. You can set a YouTube reminder now here.

After a series of inspiring livestreams from Cardiff, Galway and Dublin earlier this year, London Calling will be Other Voices’ final stop before returning home to Dingle to celebrate its 20th anniversary in November. Join us on Patreon to be the first to know.

Other Voices London Calling is brought to you in collaboration by Other Voices, South Wind Blows and the Embassy of Ireland, London and is made possible thanks to the support of the Department of Foreign Affairs, Tourism Ireland and The Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media
