Lockdown Jukebox #3 : The Duncairn Virtual Cabaret
The Duncairn Arts Centre is based in North Belfast. The organisation has a strong ethos of supporting musicians to develop their careers, and has responded to the lockdown across the UK by hosting a virtual cabaret on Saturday nights, presenting a stellar mix of emerging and established performers.
The first episode (above) featured Cork singer-songwriter John Spillane, Ian Lynch (Lankum), Amy May Ellis, poet Colin Hassard (the whole thing is worth watching for his quiet humour alone), Joshua Burnside, Julie Fowlis & Eamon Doorley, Ryan Young, Aisling Urwin and the brilliant instrumentalists Caitlín Nic Gabhann & Ciarán Ó Maonaigh.
After watching, donate if you can - all the money is split equally between the artists involved. Thanks to the Duncairn for permission to post this film.
