Little Matador and East India Youth have just been added to the Other Voices line-up for Derry~Londonderry this February 7th, 8th and 9th.
Little Matador fronted by Snow Patrol Guitarist Nathan Connolly, consists of a select team of collaborators, Gavin Fox, Paul ‘Binzer’ Brennan, Troy Stewart and Dave Magree. They marry melody and muscle with a healthy respect for noise.
East India Youth (William Doyle) offers up shimmering passages of indebted music. He’s an emotional electronic songsmith but also an inventive composer. Compared to a James Blake that you don’t want to grab by the collar and ship off to a remote place.
If you don’t make it into the Glassworks, you will be able to see all these amazing artists via the live streaming locally in Sandinos, The Gweedore, Bound for Boston, Masons, Tinneys, Bennigans and The Grand Central or online via http://www.rte.ie/othervoices, the RTÉ Player and http://www.theguardian.com/uk.
The Other Voices Music Trail will take place over the weekend in venues in and out of the city, a brilliant line-up of performances include In Their Thousands, Idiot Songs, The Clameens, dREA, Silhouette, Ego the Jackal, Bouts, Our Krypton Son and Best Boy Grip and many more.
As well as all of the gigs on the weekend itself, the Music Trail will have an added dimension when it is taken out into the neighbourhoods in the Derry City Council area in the week leading up to the main event. Beginning on Monday 3rd February, Outer Voices will incorporate collaborations with local schools, The Music Promise project and community organisations to deliver workshops and live performances. One of the highlights of Outer Voices will take place on Friday 7th February when Generator NI delivers an ‘Industry Day’ in the Nerve Centre Cinema. The day will include a range of guest speakers including some artists from the weekend’s line-up.
