The dust hasn’t settled quite yet on SxSW, and of course last week’s Other Voices showcased special performances from the Texas multi-venue music extravaganza. But that was only the first part, and tonight there’s more sonic snippets from home and abroad to take in. This, the 15th series of Other Voices, continues to shine a spotlight on some of the most compelling acts operating in the contemporary musical milieu, and SxSW seems a fitting way to do so.
In that vein, tonight’s show (11.25pm, RTE 2) sees Gregory Porter, Mumford and Sons, Wild Child, Carson McHone, Asleep At The Wheel, Aoife O’Donovan and Colm Mac Con Iomaire all step up to the proverbial plate.
Tune in, but in the meantime, enjoy some sneak previews of performances from Mumford and Sons, and Aoife O’Donovan.
