Other Voices 2019: Best gigs on the trail

Spread across three days and nights in beautiful Dingle, Other Voices showcased over 70 artists in over 30 venues as part of the Dingle Gin Music Trail.

We partnered with Dingle Distillery to capture the magic of the weekend.

Now the dust has settled and the crowds have dispersed from the the tiny seaside town of Dingle, we’ve been able to make sense of the weekend’s festivities.

Other Voices played host to over 70 acts on the Dingle Gin Music Trail and with venues ranging from ice cream parlours to back rooms of bars, there was a variety of weird and wonderful performances over the three days.

We’ve narrowed it down to five of our favourite live acts that grabbed people’s attention at Other Voices last weekend.

Rachael Lavelle
Performing in the intimate confines of An Díseart on Sunday, Rachael Lavelle’s stunning vocals echoed around the church’s antiquated surroundings. Barely flinching throughout the set, she had incredible presence whilst performing and equally endearing  chats between tracks.

If you managed to squeeze into the packed out Nellie Fred’s bar on Friday you may have caught a glimpse of Fehdah’s RnB tinged show. The beauty of Other Voices is getting to see incredible acts in venues that would never happen otherwise and when given the chance to play in what felt like a tin of sardines Fehdah nailed it.


God Knows & Friends
Abdicating his evening slot in McCarthy’s, God Knows enlisted a south west crew of MCs for an absolutely riotous show. Gavindavinci and Hazey Haze of PX Music were joined by Outsider YP to evoke mosh pits that would intimidate even the most seasoned veteran.

Saint Sister
Announced as a surprise performance in An Díseart, the duo brought their soul-cleansing sounds to the perfect venue. With a queue wrapping round the corner, anticipation was high and they didn’t disappoint. You could hear a pin drop in the church as the crowd sat in awe of the almost ethereal sounds of the harp and attentively listened to the duo’s mesmerising vocals.

Derry Native Autumns flipped McCarthy’s bar upside down on Saturday evening. More accustomed to shelling basement clubs in Moscow into the early hours, it definitely skewed our perception of time seeing Autumn’s non-stop raving antics at 18.00 on Saturday. His relentless energy and bizarre, warped vocalisations made for a performance that would blow away any cobwebs lingering from the previous night.
