Villagers, Loah and Jack O’Rourke are just three of
the impressive line-up of acts set for a very special
Christmas Other Voices show from the Guinness
‘Other Voices: Home at the Guinness Storehouse’ will stream live this
December 16 and will also feature Denise Chaila, Choice Music Prize
nominee Sorcha Richardson, MuRli, God Knows, Ivor Novello,
Louth-based folk trio The Mary Wallopers, Crash Ensemble and
hip-hop duo Mango X Mathman.
Sean Potts, fiddler player and presenter Doireann Glackin, a
specially commissioned contribution from the award-winning
Irish writer Joseph O’Connor, and much more is expected to
unfold on the night.
The evening will be hosted by Irish singer-songwriter Loah who has
been lauded for both her debut album and her performance as Mary
Magdalene in Jesus Christ Superstar in the West End. Loah said: “It is
an honour to present an incredibly special evening of ‘Other Voices’ at
the Guinness Storehouse. It’s been a difficult year for live performance,
and this event will be a show of resilience and a celebration of all that
is amazing in Irish culture. Many of us are far apart this winter, but
we are hoping to bring you right into the heart of Dublin with a truly
unique array of music and words.”
The live concert is going to be streamed live across the world from
8pm on Wednesday, December 16.
Although ‘Other Voices: Home at the Guinness Storehouse’ will be
free to view from all of the ‘Other Voices’ social media channels,
they will also be accepting donations. These will go directly to
supporting the music community in Ireland through the Irish
Music Industry Covid Emergency Relief Fund.
As the night unfolds, the Guinness Storehouse will bring a
dash of Christmas magic to the skies of Dublin with four
beams of light shining out from the Gravity Bar, offering
a symbol of comfort and connection to the people of Dublin.
This beacon of light will also be seen around the Irish coast,
as a necklace of lighthouses are illuminated as a safe, secure
and comforting pathway home.
