“Artists in Ireland right now are producing, making, minting and recording some of the best music ever made here.”

“It’s a delight to host some of these artists in the beautiful town of Dingle, West Kerry, right at the edge of Europe,” he added.

While Keith Johnson, Director of Marketing & Membership of IMRO said: “Other Voices has grown into a much treasured and unique platform that provides Irish music creators with an ideal opportunity to reach a global audience with their creative talent… long may it continue”.
