Tuesday November 21 will see Other Voices: Home at the Guinness Storehouse return for its fourth instalment featuring a legendary line-up including The Streets, Mahalia, Fizz, The Bonny Men, Morgana and spoken word artist Dagogo Hart.

Hosted by MayKay, this special gig marks the start of the seasonal celebrations at St. James’s Gate with an intimate and unforgettable evening of songs, stories, and collaborations for audiences at home and worldwide. 

A limited number of free tickets will be available tomorrow,  Tuesday, November 14 at 12 noon. The show will also be available to stream live online via Othervoices.ie.

The Mike Skinner-led musical project The Streets will headline, having recently reunited after a short hiatus. They are returning with a brand new album, a feature film and a long awaited tour across the UK and Ireland, called ‘The Darker the Shadow, The Brighter the Light’.

Speaking on the announcement, Mike Skinner said: “Dublin in October was a party so the band are all delighted to be coming back for Other Voices: Home at the Guinness Storehouse. Looking forward to some Guinness tasting and playing live at the home of the Black Stuff”.

Other Voices: Home at the Guinness Storehouse continuously supports and showcases local and emerging talent. Dublin producer and singer-songwriter Orla Gartland and English artist Dodie, who have teamed up with other musical friends to form a new band called FIZZ, will take to the stage alongside The Bonny Men, one of Ireland’s most exciting traditional Irish music groups hailing from Dublin. Nigerian-born, Dubin-based poet Dagogo Hart will deliver a bespoke spoken-word piece on the evening.

Also making the trip to St James’s Gate is R&B vocalist and songwriter, Mahalia. The three times Mobo winner, Brit and Grammy award nominee will take the stage at Other Voices: Home, eight years after her first live televised performance at St. James’ Church, Dingle. 

Mahalia said: “I love performing in Dublin, there is something so special about the energy and I always feel so at home here. Other Voices have been a part of my music life for a little while now and I am so grateful for all of the opportunities they have given to me already! To perform at the Guinness Storehouse with such an incredible line-up of acts is so exciting and I can’t wait!”

Rounding out the incredible line-up is Morganahalf of synth-pop duo Saint Sister who is now out on her own, touring her solo project in Dublin, London and New York. Other Voices: Home at the Guinness Storehouse will be Morgana’s first recorded performance.

Philip King, Other Voices founder, said:“In our fourth year producing Other Voices: Home at the Guinness Storehouse, we are thrilled to announce a new date and to extend a warm welcome to this curation of hugely talented artists. St. James’s Gate and St. James’ Church are bound together by our shared knowledge of culture and community, and we are proud to call the Home of Guinness our Dublin home. This promises to be a memorable night reflecting the song, sounds and stories of home to audiences across Ireland and around the world.”

Catherine Toolan, MD, Diageo Irish Brand Homes, said: The Guinness Storehouse’s partnership with Other Voices was borne from our shared passion to showcase the incredible and diverse culture of music, artistry and storytelling that is present in Ireland today. From uileann pipes and garage music to spoken word and indie-pop, we are so excited to celebrate these immense talents and we hope that everyone in the audience, live and online, discovers something or someone that they can’t wait to hear again.”

This event is strictly over 18s.
