Big voices signed for RTÉ show

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - Weekly Guide To Entertainment Friday 13.11.2009 - By Lauren Mur­phy

The eighth in­stal­ment of RTÉ’s Other Voices TV show will kick off in its usual venue, St James’s Church in Din­gle, Co Kerry. Dublin­born BBC DJ An­nie Mac will host the show, which will be filmed from De­cem­ber 5th to 9th, and screened in the new year.

As al­ways, a host of Ir­ish and in­ter­na­tional acts will con­verge on Din­gle for the show, and a num­ber of tick­ets for each night will also go on sale to the pub­lic via Tick­ets.ie from Mon­day, Novem­ber 23rd. Be quick, though; there are only 60 tick­ets avail­able per night, and they are lim­ited to two nights per buyer.

Some of the acts al­ready an­nounced to play in­clude Snow Pa­trol, Richard Haw­ley, The XX and Aus­tralian band The Tem­per Trap. The Ticket can con­firm that in­die favourites The Magic Num­bers and rock­a­billy queen Imelda May will also be per­form­ing.

Or­gan­is­ers are keep­ing mum re­gard­ing what acts are play­ing on what night, but pro­ducer Philip King said that it’s the at­mos­phere that makes Other Voices so spe­cial for mu­si­cians and fans alike.

“It’s like bring­ing ev­ery­body back home now,” he said. “It’s a ses­sion without par­al­lel that takes place deep in the heart of the beau­ti­ful and in­spir­ing west of Ire­land.”

Other Voice: Imelda May
