Other voices in other places

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - LISTINGS - TONY CLAY­TON-LEA

OTHER VOICES DERRY The Glass­works, Derry Tonight/ to­mor­row & Sun 7pm Adm free (ticket from oth­er­voices.ie) And so our favourite mu­sic event/fes­ti­val spreads its wings and takes it­self off to Derry. Yes, we know it was in New York over the past year, but that trip seemed rather es­o­teric com­pared to the an­nual Din­gle Don­gle that takes place ev­ery De­cem­ber. This is the first time Other Voices has trav­elled within Ire­land, and with the sup­port of the De­part­ment of Cul­ture, Arts and Leisure North­ern Ire­land, the Bri­tish Coun­cil and Arts Coun­cil Eng­land, it’s a plea­sure to say that the line-up, which was put to­gether to cel­e­brate Derry’s City of Cul­ture 2013 cel­e­bra­tions, is a Hardyesque cracker.

While there is all man­ner of ac­tiv­ity go­ing on out­side the pri­mary mu­sic shows (th­ese in­clude Other Voices Mu­sic Trail across city venues, Imro Other Room show­case gigs, and Jim Car­roll’s Ban­ter Sa­lon), many eyes and ears will none­the­less be on the co-head­line likes of Damien Dempsey, Soak, Bron­agh Gal­lagher, Jesca Hoop, Ma­rina & the Di­a­monds, Neil Han­non, Beth Orton, Daugh­ter, James York­ston and Two Door Cin­ema Club.

Derry done and dusted, so. Next stop? Lon­don in April . . .
