Other Voices founder Philip King said:

We’re thrilled to welcome live audiences back to Dingle, that uplifting engagement between audience and artists is really at the heart of the live experience. We have some of the most brilliant musicians in the world making the pilgrimage to West Kerry and we have a gathering up of the new voices and artists who have written the emotional soundtrack to the Ireland of 2021. The artists and the crews that make them audible and visible are the heart of the matter and it’s a delight to celebrate their creativity and commitment. It’s going to be great.”

Executive Producer at RTÉ Justin Healy said:

As we mark its 20th anniversary, Other Voices will continue to bring our audience incredible music from one of the most special corners of Europe. There is something unique about the tone of Other Voices that has captured exceptional performances from Irish and international artists, and RTÉ are proud to be part of the Other Voices story.“

The St James Church Restoration Fund

For twenty years St James’ Church has been Other Voices’ spiritual home. Its doors have welcomed everyone from Amy Winehouse to Young Fathers, St Vincent to The National and beyond, not to mention the hundreds of you who have been lucky enough to have ‘The Church’ experience. It’s been home to so many magic moments and after two decades the building is in need of care and we would ask you to consider donating to The St James’ Church Restoration Fund to help keep this historic space lit up for another two decades. You can donate here.
