A second season of ‘Courage’, performances live streaming from iconic Irish cultural locations
Curated by the team who produce Other Voices, Ireland’s longest-running and highly rated music festival and TV series, the new series of Courage gigs began live streaming on 23 June and feature an all star lineup of artists performing in a selection of iconic cultural and heritage locations around the country.
The second installement of this unique Irish music project will deliver uplifting, inspiring performances from brilliant artists to millions of people at home in Ireland and around the world.
The first episode of the second series will stream on 23 June, featuring performances from acclaimed alternative folk musician James Vincent McMorrow, who is just about to release his fifth album and choice prize nominated singer songwriter Maija Sofia . They will be joining us from the beautiful location of Killruddery House and Gardens in Bray Co. Wicklow.
On Thursday 25th of June we will be joined by winners of the 2020 RTÉ Choice Prize LANKUM live from Kilkenny Castle.
Further performances will be streamed from Glenveagh National Park, The Crawford Gallery in Cork City along with the Guildhall in Derry~Londonderry, the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin City and and Swords Castle in Fingal, County Dublin.
Further performances in the Courage series will take place on Tuesday and Thursday nights and will be available worldwide on Facebook Live and YouTube. A catch up facility will also be available on the Irish national TV station’s RTÉ Player.
The performances have been designed to minimise travel, contact and proximity for artists and crew and will be filmed in strictly controlled locations.
As an integral part of Irish culture and society, music, the Other Voices organisers believe, collapses distance in this time of isolation, giving us courage, consolation and bringing people together.
