As Other Voices heads North this October, we look at one of the most exciting artists coming out of Belfast.
Other Voices have joined forces with Digital DNA, the 174 Trust and Duncairn Centre for Culture and Arts to bring their dynamic event to Belfast, with the support and investment of Belfast City Council, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Creative Ireland, BBC Northern Ireland, RTÉ and Tourism Northern Ireland.
On Thursday October 26 and Friday October 27, schools, youth and community organisations from across Belfast will come together to take part in four events as part of the Digital DNA Creative Quarter, showcasing the power of community through the mediums of music and technology.
Then on Saturday October 28, The Belfast Edge takes up residence in The Theatre at The Duncairn, a conference that aims to create discourse and collision of ideas around creativity, culture, technology, education and investment policies, firmly placing creativity at the centre of all policy-making and practice.
That same evening, The Other Voices Stage will be in full swing and showcase some of the best in new Irish music. The event will feature sets from Grammy-shortlisted trad giants Beoga, lo-fi acoustic gems from Portadown’s Jealous of the Birds, Kildare pop-rock, arena-touring duo Picture This, the spine-tingling atmospheric folk of Hampshire born, Donegal-bred Rosie Carney and Derry purveyors of punk Touts.
