Other Voices are heading to Cork later this month for Bringing It All Back Home at University College Cork (UCC) on Thursday 29th September 2022.

The night will be livestreamed from UCC Campus with, Aula Maxima, Honan Chapel and Glucksman Gallery being used as backdrop for performances from Cork-born UK-based artist Biig Piig, Derry artist SOAK, Cork-born/London-based pop artist Cian Ducrot, Cork singer-songwriter Susan O’Neill and more.

The show will be presented by MayKay, and also feature breezy indie pop artist Yenkee, Cork art-punk band Pretty Happy, three-part harmony trio Rufous Nightjar consisting of Branwen Kavanagh, Anna Mieke and Zoe Basha, plus Sunday’s Well – a band of UCC traditional musicians led by Caitlín Nic Gabhann, UCC’s artist in residence for 2022.

The celebrations start with Other Voices of UCC, a free public concert in the Hub. The Violet Club will headline this concert which starts at 5.30pm on 29 September. Other acts by UCC students and staff in the line-up include Goa, a pipa performer from China, an opera performance by Grace Murphy, a rap performance by Raphael Olympio and a lively session by the UCC Traditional Society. The event is open to all on a first come first serve basis. After the concert, the Other Voices main event will be live streamed on screen in the Hub from 7pm.

“My own musical expedition began in UCC and was informed in every way by the music that I heard, the people that I met and the wonderful experience that I had as a student in the University. It is the realisation of a long held ambition to bring Other Voices back home to the beautiful campus of the University and to Cork City.”

South Wind Blows Producer, Other Voices’ founder and UCC graduate Philip King
