Willie Nelson on “Other Voices”


Willie Nelson, Gregory Porter, Rusangano Family, Imelda May, Lisa Hannigan and many more to appear in new series featuring exclusive performances from Austin and Dingle.

Starting Thursday 2nd February / 23:30 / RTÉ 2

In October 2016, Other Voices hit out from Dingle crossing the Atlantic on the musical expedition of a lifetime. The show found a sister home in Arlyn Studios, Austin, Texas where we filmed an exclusive acoustic performance with the legendary Willie Nelson and captured a mesmerizing performance from Grammy winning jazz and bluesman vocalist Gregory Porter.

Special guests Mumford and Sons performed songs from their number one, platinum selling album ‘Wilder Mind’ and and gave us a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s ‘I’m On Fire’. Fresh from performances on SNL and Jimmy Kimmel, the new Queen of Honky Tonk Margo Price and her band showed us exactly why she is Country’s rising star. Aoife O’Donovan recalled summers spent in West Cork and sang the beautiful ‘Lakes of Pontichartrain’. Iarla O’Lionard (The Gloaming) and Colm Mac Con Iomaire brought the room to a standstill with a spellbinding performance of The Foggy Dew

The new series of Other Voices will also include performances from Cage The Elephant, Conor Oberst (Bright Eyes), Sweet Spirit, Asleep At The Wheel, Dale Watson, Carson McHone and Wild Child who all joined us in Austin, Texas.
