Conor Maley

Growing up in Glenswilly with my father working as a music teacher I have always been around music. I first picked up a guitar when I was 12 and began writing my own music soon after becoming 13.

In 2017 I entered the JBL EON ONE TAKE UK songwriter’s competition and won with my song titled “lost boy”. Following this I was published in the Donegal news for overcoming depression with the help of my music.


Emma Horan

At the age of 15, with her battered iPod touch, Emma Horan from Lurgan, Co. Armagh started creating online videos, singing unique mash-up style cover versions of her favourite songs.

Emma has received over 3 million views across her various channels and charted at number 3 on the iTunes Singer / Songwriter chart (alongside Passenger, Ed Sheeran and Tracy Chapman)

Emma recently delved into the world of songwriting and has released her second original track as a singer-songwriter at the age of 19.


Johnny James

Singer/Songwriter based in Lisburn, Northern Ireland – influences include James Bay, Ed Sheeran, James Vincent McMorrow, Vance Joy, Ron Pope.


Lauren Bird

Strabane songwriter and ukulele enthusiast Lauren Bird has found herself plenty of admirers within the Northern Ireland music scene. Building on her Chordblossom Kickstart win she went on to release her debut album ‘The Inbetween’ in 2017 following a successful crowdfunding campaign.

Through her music, Lauren explores anxieties, self-deprecation, friends, relationships and ultimately accepting oneself. A sell out album launch, a twilight rooftop show at Culture Night Belfast and finding her way to a few end of year lists topped an exciting year. The honest and endearing nature of Lauren Bird’s music will continue to charm stages around Northern Ireland.


Emer Maguire

Emer Maguire is a creator of quirky folk pop that combines catchy choruses with refreshingly unconventional lyrics. Hailing from Northern Ireland, the singer songwriter and multi instrumentalist released her debut single 'Belfast' in 2016. With support from the likes of BBC Radio Ulster, RTE2FM and Q Radio, 'Belfast' highlighted Emer as a serious new musical talent. Emer has performed in venues across the UK and Ireland since her debut release. From a performance at Manchester's Bluedot festival, to going on tour in Scotland, to playing at Stendhal music festival and having her first headline show with a full backing band, Emer is sharing her music with appreciative audiences everywhere. 2018 sees Emer Maguire heading back to the studio to focus on recording her much anticipated next release.

PERFORMING: 10th & 11th MARCH, 1PM - 2PM

Rebekah Fitch

"Rebekah Fitch has become something of a Northern Irish pop phenomenon" - Hot Press

Combining the artistry of Florence + the Machine, the thought-provoking lyric writing of Stevie Nicks, and the wonder and curiosity of Bjork, Rebekah Fitch is a new artist that will spark intrigue. The power of music is in its ability to carry a message, and this is exactly what Rebekah does. Rebekah’s musical studies have enhanced her thirst for sonic experimenting, bringing a new dimension to the distinctive melodies she creates. Her music is influenced by an eclectic mix of artists, ranging from the likes of Lana Del Rey and Lorde, to an interest in the experimental and electronic music of Bjork and Portishead. Intricately woven lyrics invite you to explore layers of meaning to uncover the full extent of what she has to say.

She has already gained commercial success with playlisting on Cool FM, U105 and Dublin’s FM104 (as their Select Irish Artist), as well as performing live sessions on BBC Radio Ulster, Metro Radio, SPIN1038 and more.

PERFORMING: 15th & 16th MARCH, 1PM - 2PM

Arbuckle & McCormick

From Derry/Londonderry comes an exciting new Folk duo, Arbuckle & McCormick. Robert Arbuckle (guitar/vocals) and Emily McCormick (keys/guitar/vocals/) formed the project in December 2017 and already have made a great and lasting impression in the music scene after playing local venues and with a recent release of their live session with Dunno Films “live at the Boho Barn”. New music and performances to come soon in 2018

PERFORMING: 24th & 25th MARCH, 12PM - 1PM


Reevah is an artist from Derry with an impressive voice and songs that stretch out of the material world into another, entrancing zone. “Dreamy folk is what I’m going for”.

She has featured with Stephen McCauley on Radio Foyle plus Across The Line on BBC Radio Ulster. In October 2017 she travelled to Warsaw, Poland to play at the PROM Kultury venue. Reevah is the alter ego of Aoife Boyle. She rates Dallas Green, Lucy Rose and Bon Iver as exceptional voices. Her songs, she figures, are like “an ongoing diary”. Expect tremendous updates, soon.

PERFORMING: 24th & 25th MARCH, 1PM - 2PM

Rab Wishart

Rab Wishart writes songs that are clear, direct and affecting. He lives in Belfast but his music has journeyed with him to America, Australia and South East Asia. His voice has rung out at the Bondi Hotel in Sydney and at the Hamilton 400 V8 Supercars Rally, New Zealand. Rab has sung for the Lord Mayor of Belfast and the Belfast Giants ice hockey team at City Hall. His reputation and his reach are steadily rising.
