Other Voices are celebrating Irish and Welsh culture in Cardigan

Words: Staff Writer

Other Voices, is heading to Wales alongside some Irish talent for another unforgettable weekend of music.

Since the population has found itself under house arrest in the midst of a global pandemic, Other Voices has provided a sense of solitude in its live performance series.

We’ve seen Denise Chaila cement her place as one of Ireland’s most compelling acts during their ‘Courage’ series and we saw the likes of Nealo and For Those I Love provide emotive live performances in Dingle late last year.

Now, the festival is heading over the water to Wales and bringing a host of talent with it.

This March, Other Voices is embracing the diversity of Irish and Welsh culture and bringing the two together. The sophomore edition of Other Voices Cardigan features pop artist Ani Glass, accomplished Irish violinist Aoife Ní Bhriain, acclaimed Welsh harpist Catrin Finch, Cardiff based rising star Juice Menace, post-punk poet Sinead O’Brien, multi-instrumentalist The Gentle Good and Trinidad-born rapper, producer, and songwriter BERWYN

Incidentally, Berwyn featured in our top 50 tracks of 2020.

Hosted by Huw Stephens and Kizzy Crawford, Other Voices Cardiganis part of ‘Gŵyl 2021’, a two-day digital festival.

It’s available to stream for free on Other Voices’ YouTube, Twitter and Facebook platforms (with the exception of UK based music fans who can tune in at BBC.co.uk/gwyl2021). The event will also broadcast on S4C and RTÉ later this year.

Elsewhere, this Dublin artist has spent lockdown reimagining our favourite pubs in the capital.
