Participants produce new songs in memory of the late John Hume and life during lockdown

New songs created by a group of participants on our 'Cultural Harmony' community engagement programme were unveiled during a livestream as part of Good Relations Week 2020. 

Cultural Harmony encouraged its participants to explore music against the backdrop of conflict in the music scene of Northern Ireland in the 70s and 80s. With inputs from prominent figures in the music scene such as John O’Neill and Stuart Bailie, the project brought about thoughtful conversations around music, memory and identity.

During the sessions, the group learnt the art of songwriting and music creation before crafting their own bespoke pieces. Two of the groups choose to dedicate theirs to the late John Hume and another about the struggles of lockdown — take a listen below.
