This March, Other Voices makes its way from Dingle on the west coast of Ireland to Cardiff for an unforgettable weekend of music, embracing the diversity of Irish and Welsh culture and bringing the two together.
The sophomore edition of Other Voices Cardigan will showcase the talents of some of music’s brightest new stars.
The rich and diverse lineup includes electronic pop artist Ani Glass, accomplished Irish violinist Aoife Ní Bhriain, acclaimed Welsh harpist Catrin Finch, Cardiff based rising star Juice Menace, post-punk poet Sinead O’Brien, multi-instrumentalist The Gentle Good and Trinidad-born rapper, producer, and songwriter BERWYN.
Hosted by Huw Stephens and Kizzy Crawford, Other Voices Cardigan is a collaborative stream brought to you by South Winds Blows, Mwldan and Triongl. Other Voices Cardigan is part of ‘Gŵyl 2021’, a two day digital festival staged by four of Wales’ best-loved festivals, and is presented in partnership by Focus Wales, Little Wander, Triongl, South Wind Blows, Mwldan, Wales Millennium Centre and BBC Cymru Wales.
Irish and international music fans can stream the weekend’s performances for free on Other Voices’ YouTube, Twitter and Facebook platforms (with the exception of UK based music fans who can tune in at BBC.co.uk/gwyl2021). The event will also broadcast on S4C and RTÉ later this year.
Following on from the highly successful ‘Courage’ series, Other Voices will once again be collapsing distance, this time between homes around the world and the front row of the National Museum, Cardiff with an inspiring weekend of beautifully realised performances all free to enjoy online.
Stay tuned for more information and sneak previews over the coming weeks!
