NewDad, Tolü Makay and more to play Other Voices ‘Courage’ series in Galway

Words: Dylan Murphy

The special one-off show streams Friday 3 September in St Nicholas’ Church in Galway.

For the first time ever, Other Voices is teaming up with Galway International Arts Festival to broadcast a one-off special of the ‘Courage’ series that brought you the likes of Denise Chaila in The National Gallery of Ireland and Mango x MathMan in Whelan’s during lockdown.

On Friday 3 September a slew of Irish acts will have their performances beamed direct from St Nicholas’ Church in Galway City.

The lineup includes Galway dream-pop group NewDad, soulful rising afro-pop-star Tolü Makay, pioneering avant-garde composer and performer Anna Mullarkey and the spectacular duo of gifted multi-instrumentalist Susan O’Neill and renowned Irish songwriter Mick Flannery who will perform a very special set together ahead of their duets album released in September.

Speaking on the performances, Other Voices Founder Philip King said:

“We were delighted to receive the invitation to be part of Galway International Arts Festival in this, of all years. Galway has always cherished and celebrated a diversity of musical voices and Other Voices is very pleased in this our 20th year to put together a programme that is in tune with the ethos of the festival and to share stunning performances from St Nicholas’ Church in the heart of Galway with the world.”

Fans can stream the weekend’s performances for free on Other Voices’ and GIAF social media platforms.
