These guys keep pulling out the surprises, with the first of the artists announced for Dingle, December 6th – 8th. The three artists announced are David Gray, Lisa O’Neill and… Mogwai! I wonder how Post Rock will go down with the locals in Dingle? I’m sure they’ll love it. Details from the press release below…

For it’s twelfth season 2013/2014, Other Voices will once again weave it’s magic spell in Dingle. Voices and spirits will be raised in St. James’ Church and right around the alluring town on December 6th, 7th & 8th. Aidan Gillen will return to present the series.

The first three acts to be revealed are multi-million selling artist David Gray, Scottish post-rock band Mogwai and Irish newcomer, with a truly original voice, Lisa O’ Neill.

Philip King notes “It’s great to be back, Other Voices hits the even dozen and what a trip it’s been. We have photographed, recorded and archived the soundtrack of one of the country’s most turbulent decades with some of Ireland’s and the world’s greatest artists. Their commitment, creativity and volunteerism have given us great hope for the future and the energy to continue on down the road on this expedition”.

After a successful process last year, RTÉ and Other Voices will again give music fans the opportunity to select the artist for the final IMRO Other Room slot.
