Last week saw some tremendous performances from Girl Band, Rusangano Family, Margaret Glaspy, Caoimhin O Raghallaigh and Cormac Begley, and Fangclub, but there’s still more Other Voices ground to cover. Given that this is their 15th series, the quality remains high.
Tonight, at 23.25 on RTE2, there will be a special showcase of Irish talent from the IMRO Other Room. The IMRO Other Room is a staple of the Other Voices weekend, shining a light on fresh, exciting music from Ireland. This year’s lineup is diverse as ever, featuring outstanding performances from singer-songwriter Róisín O, post-rock ensemble Overhead, The Albatross, alt-folk songstress Ailbhe Reddy, trad group Moon Looks On, sibling duo Cry Monster Cry and grunge-pop guitar slingers Fangclub.
Presented by MayKay, Other Voices will be repeated on Sunday 12th March at 00.35, and available online via the RTE Player.
In the meantime, have a taste of what to expect from tonight’s edition.
