Ireland's longest-running music TV show Other Voices will return to RTÉ2 and RTÉ Player on March 4th, with an array of dynamic and diverse performances, captured in a variety of different locations, including Dingle, Cardiff, and Ballina.

The series, presented by May Kay and Huw Stephens, now in its 19th season, will run for 10 weeks, from March 4th at 11.05 pm, and will feature compelling and uplifting performances from some of the most exciting Irish voices creating the soundtrack to our lives right now. 

Hozier will kick off the season with an intimate, stripped-back, performance, featuring new string arrangements by Ireland's Crash Ensemble. Viewers can also expect striking performances from two Choice Music Prize-nominated acts: the indie rock four-piece Pillow Queens and singer-songwriter Niamh Regan, both of whom released debut albums in 2020.  

The Other Voices Series coming to you on television this year features a range of truly remarkable performances from Irish artists who opened their hearts and raised their voices in a powerful and emotional musical response to the events of what has been one of the most complex and difficult years in Ireland’s history,” said Other Voices Founder Philip King.

“We have been so lucky to have the support of Minister Catherine Martin, which has been essential in enabling us to produce Other Voices this year and it is a privilege to work with these amazingly talented and creative artists and with the wonderful crews that make them audible and visible.”

Justin Healy, Executive Producer at RTÉ, added: “RTE is very proud to be involved in this long-running and much-loved series. The Irish music scene, despite its immense challenges right now, has arguably never been so rich in new talent and we're delighted to feature so many of them on Other Voices this season.”

The series will include three special episodes: Grammy-nominated five-piece Fontaines D.C. will showcase their unique sound in the iconic location of Kilmainham Gaol; Other Voices fan favourites Elbow come to us from Ballina and Dingle. The series will also feature a special highlight episode of the upcoming Other Voices Cardigan with performances from rapper BERWYN, post-punk-poet Sinead O’Brien, acclaimed violinist Aoife Ní Bhriain, and more from Cardiff.

Legendary Irish musician Damien Dempsey, renowned folk singer-songwriter Rhiannon Giddens, alt-country musician CMAT, and For Those I Love, the project of multi-instrumentalist & producer David Balfe, will also feature in the series.
