Making music in Belfast…

THE Ethnomusicology Programme at Queen’s University has just set up a website on ‘Making Music in Belfast’. It takes a look at what kind of music is found in Belfast, and has started off with profiles of Ballyclare Victoria Flute Band, the Ulster Orchestra, Andersonstown Traditional and Contemporary Music School, Um Pouquinho de Brasil and the Ulster-Scots Folk Orchestra. New, and well worth a look – and listen!

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
