Daoirí Farrell at Bangor Castle!

The next concert in the series of Music In The Chamber concerts at Bangor Castle, is taking place on Thursday 21 March and will feature the Irish folk sensation Daoirí Farrell.

Dublin-born traditional singer and bouzouki player Daoirí Farrell worked as an electrician, until a Christy Moore performance on Irish TV inspired him to down tools. The trade’s loss has been our gain, with Daoirí quickly becoming one of the biggest names in Irish folk and one of most important singers to come out of Ireland in recent years.

Six months after the release of ‘True Born Irishman’ in 2016 Daoirí had picked up two prestigious BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards for Best Newcomer and Best Traditional Track, and also performed live at the awards ceremony at London’s Royal Albert Hall.

He has since toured Australia, Canada, Denmark and Belgium, featured at the likes of Festival Interceltique Lorient, Shetland Folk Festival and Cambridge Folk Festival, and toured alongside the Transatlantic Sessions project. 

He is a musician championed by the likes of Christy Moore and has been described by Donal Lunny as; “one of the most important traditional singers to emerge in the last decade.”

Just last week, Daoirí launched his third album ‘A Lifetime of Happiness.’ In his own words ‘This is my third solo album and it feels different, somehow more grown up. That for me is partly down to the song choice. Each song was very carefully chosen and each is beautiful in its own way. I really enjoyed the process of searching each one out and arranging them all.  And I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to have recorded it with some of my favourite musicians.’

The Bangor Castle date is part of a five-venue Northern Ireland tour presented by Moving on Music and supported by The Arts Council of Northern Ireland.

Tickets cost £12 and are on sale now at: https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/ardsandnorthdown.

Tickets can also be purchased from North Down Museum or any of Ards and North Down Borough Council’s Visitor Information Centres.

World-class musicians return to Derry for 10th anniversary celebrations of Walled City Music Festival

Cathal Breslin
Cathal Breslin

The Walled City Music Festival has announced a stunning line-up of world-class musicians for this, its 10th anniversary, taking place from 7 to 10 March. The north-west’s premier classical music festival, which will take place in the Guildhall, the Great Hall Magee and Cultúrlann Uí Chanáin, will feature return appearances by some of the outstanding performers from the festival’s first decade, including Dimitry Sitkovetsky (violin), Kirill Troussov (violin), Sylvain Blassel (harp) and Jeffrey Zeigler (cello). Artistic Director of the festival, Derry-born Cathal Breslin, will perform in all four of the concerts, both as a soloist and with his Trio Festivale, which also features fellow Artistic Director Sabrina Hu (flute) and Gerald Peregrine (cello).

In addition to the impressive concert series, the festival will run an extensive outreach programme in primary schools throughout Derry and the surrounding area. These highly interactive workshops will include a performance of a new commission by Joe Csibi based on the tale of The Children of Lir, incorporating well-known excerpts from classical and Irish music repertoire.

The festival’s opening concert in Magee will herald the imminent arrival of spring with Beethoven’s ever popular Spring Sonata, Spiegel im Spiegel by Estonian composer Arvo Pärt and masterpieces by Debussy and Ravel. This is followed on Friday by a chamber recital in the Guildhall focusing on the wild and romantic side of classical repertoire, with works by Liszt, Bartók, Wagner and Sarasate.

Saturday sees a double-bill of UK premieres written in the past year. Ian Wilson’s The Great Hunger, commissioned for Trio Festivale, takes as its starting point the epic poem by Patrick Kavanagh and complements the exhibition of Great Hunger artworks running at Cultúrlann Uí Chanáin. This concert also features Jeffrey Zeigler, one of the world’s foremost contemporary cellists and a former member of the renowned Kronos Quartet, who returns to the festival with a trio of works from the cutting edge of New York’s new music scene.

The 2019 Walled City Music Festival comes to a rousing conclusion with a return visit by the Ulster Orchestra, performing with the festival’s guest artists in an evening of overtures, concertos and solo works, ranging from Mozart’s Concerto for Flute and Harp to the richly romantic music of Tchaikovsky’s Concertos for Violin and Piano. Conducted by the orchestra’s former Principal Conductor Dmitry Sitkovetsky, and showcasing some of classical music’s most iconic repertoire, this concert promises an experience to remember.

The Walled City Music Festival will take place from 7 to 10 March and tickets are now available via the Millennium Forum Box Office or online at www.millenniumforum.co.uk.

Big screen gets the green light in Newtownabbey

The Planning Committee of Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council has granted planning permission to Hammerson Ltd for a major new £8 million development comprising a multi-screen cinema and café/restaurant units on a disused brown field site at Old Church Road, Newtownabbey.

Welcoming the decision, Committee Chairman, Councillor Henry Cushinan said; “This is a fantastic investment in the Borough’s economy that will provide an exciting new entertainment facility for Newtownabbey and create over 70 new full time jobs.  The new development will occupy a key location next to the Abbey Centre Shopping Centre, creating a truly family-orientated offer for residents and visitors to the area. This latest investment will bring an element of trade that will extend into the evening, creating a strong daytime and evening attraction for the area. It will regenerate a site that has been derelict for a number of years also bring much needed construction jobs to the area both during construction and after completion.”

Full details of the planning application are available to view at the Planning Portal www.planningni.gov.uk

However, all is not as it first seems..
