Introducing Belfast Live Sessions

This one has been cooking for a little while so we’re super excited to finally reveal the Belfast Live Sessions! These intimate acoustic-based sessions will shine a light on the best emerging musical talent in Northern Ireland.

As part of this new series, Belfast Live Sessions will be seeking out the most exciting new sounds and touring acts from Northern Ireland for unique performances captured on film.

First up is Belfast band The Emerald Armada, who we caught up with to record two tracks at the Limelight.

Belfast Live editor Chris Sherrard said: “The aim when we launched Belfast Live was to properly reflect what is happening in this magnificent city.

“So far that has been through the stories we’ve produced where, I hope, our readers know we listen to them and aim to produce the type of content they want.

“We’ve taken that on now with more video content, first with our previews of the Irish League, and now with the Belfast Live Sessions.

“The ambition is to shine a spotlight on the emerging acts who have no shortage of talent and quality but just need the chance to reach a wider audience.

“I couldn’t imagine a better act than The Emerald Armada to launch this new era for the site with.

“We hope you enjoy this first performance – as well as all of those which are coming soon.”
