This Friday I'm going to be playing in Derry as part of the Other Voices festival and anyone who's heard of Other Voices will understand why I'm very excited about it! They have a reputation for showcasing beautiful music and I'm delighted to be a part of it.
Playing with me on the night with be Julien Colarossi, Cormac OBrien and special guest percussionist Cote Calmet. I'm lucky to have been able to pry Julien out of the studio (he's recording his debut album) and all three are also busy member of the band Phisqa who are releasing their debut album on the 22nd in the Twisted Pepper. There'll also be music on the night from lots of other bands including a live stream from Damien Dempsey, Neil Hannon, Savages and Soak!
I've never been to Derry, my only introduction to the city is Connor Kelly who came and performed at The Acoustic Picnic this past summer. He's a pretty cool guy so he's set the bar high, I'm expecting a lot from this city! You can listen to his album Tell Me That We're Human at the link.
