Filmed on the North Coast, The Vox Set is a new live concert series that looks to bring together artists to collaborate. Dreamed up two years ago by the team, their pilot, filmed last winter, is finally seeing the light of day. The first performance with LARKS and Peter J. McCauley is released Sunday 20th December.
With collaboration firmly on their mind, The Vox Set’s team of three (Hannah, Stu & Sam) will feature two artists collaborating and playing on each other’s songs, rather than merely a headliner and support act, in hour long performances. Battling the undoubted difficulties of filming in the time of Covid, they hope to release the first full season of performances in the start of next year. The first, which you can glimpse below, sees LARKS and Peter J. McCauley team up in the North Coast’s Lost & Found café. The team, supported by the Arts Council Northern Ireland, are encouraging people to support the artists and Help Musicians NI through the concert.
“The Vox Set is a recorded, live concert series that invites two artists to collaborate on a gig together on the North Coast of Ireland. We place a high value on production, so it always looks and sounds great (thanks Stu and Sam!). However, even more than a world-class end-product, we value musicians and hope to build an active community that loves their work, encourages creativity and pays them properly. Each gig sees an established artist choose a collaborator, rather than a support act. During the night you’ll hear a full set from the first artist who will then invite their collaborator up to play on one of their songs and vice versa. Their guest rounds out the evening with a few tunes of their own.“
