As winter descends, a small fishing village called Dingle in County Kerry creates a little bit of magic with a festival called Other Voices. Every pub, church, library and coffee shop in Dingle opens their doors, with music and spoken words events rotating across each and every venue over three days.
Often referred to as a 'musical pilgrimage', audiences and performers wander in and out of these venues. But it’s in St James’ Church where the melodies rise to the rooftops that something special happens...
Performing over the Friday and Saturday evenings will be British R&B soul-singer and writer Mahalia, Arizona-born Americana performer Courtney Marie Andrews and haunting Irish singer-songwriter David Keenan. Also performing will be one of Britain’s most distinctive new voices Jade Bird, rising soul star Loah, the startling singer and LGBTQ trailblazer Nakhane, producer and rapper Kojaque and Irish star Jack O'Rourke.
