Other Voices will travel north in 2013 for a three day residency in Derry/Londonderry on February 8th, 9th and 10th, celebrating the city’s eminent status as City of Culture 2013. In keeping with a musical tradition nurtured in Dingle over ten years, Other Voices Derry will showcase the most influential voices in contemporary music – established artists and bands from across the globe performing alongside the ever burgeoning wave of emerging talent. Old friends will make a return visit and new friendships will be made. Two of those returning to the fold will be Neil Hannon and Californian Other Voices veteran Jesca Hoop.
“Tradition, translation and transmission are at the core of Other Voices. We were thrilled to be invited to bring Other Voices North to be part of Derry~Londonderry City of Culture 2013.
In February 2013, artists local, national and international, those hitting out on a career, and those established as world stars, will raise their voices to sing, in the Singing City of Derry~Londonderry. Through them we will connect Derry to the world, sending a message that this beautiful city on the North Western periphery of this island, is indeed a considerable place.”
Tickets for Other Voices Derry won’t be for sale, they will only be available through competitions.
Competitions will run in local and national press, local and national radio stations, online through selected blogs and the Other Voices and City of Culture 2013 Facebook and Twitter pages. The Other Voices team will also be running raffles during the free Music Trail gigs around Derry during the festival.
