On Wednesday, May 1st at 11.20pm, RTE Two will broadcast a very special feature length Other Voices programme featuring a selection of musical highlights recorded over three nights at Wilton’s Music Hall in London. Other Voices London 2013 will include performances and interviews with Laura Mvula, Villagers, Dexys, John Grant, Matthew E. White and Laura Marling.
On April 5th, Other Voices, in association with the Barbican, landed at Wilton’s Music Hall in the East End of London. This unique 17th century building provided a stunning backdrop for the eclectic musical gathering that took place over the weekend.
Other Voices traveled from Kerry (St James Church) to Derry (The Glassworks) and on to London (Wilton’s) this year, a journey that crossed borders, broke boundaries and created a tangible musical alliance between three great cities, each one steeped in its own uniquely rich heritage of song and story, past and present.
