INTRODUCTION Belfast Music Week is set to return to the city for a fourth year. As ever, this is the chance to celebrate our native talent, our excellent venues and a city that is eager to define itself with music. The addition of Van Morrison in this year’s programme, accepting his freedom of the city, is a truly special moment. One accent of this year’s event is the rising confidence of the local music industry. Another theme is the wealth of international interest in Belfast, a place that the music business wants to work with. Hence the incoming visits from Dublin, London, Nashville and beyond. Last November, more than 41,000 people attended more than 250 events in 70 venues across the city. This year we are preparing to match that achievement. There will be

BMW2013_Brochure (3).indd 3

rock, alternative, classical, traditional, dance culture and many excellent songwriters. The Ulster Orchestra will pay tribute to Seamus Heaney and his Belfast connection. The Thursday showcase at The Limelight will reveal our most promising acts. The unique charm of Terri Hooley, boss of Good Vibrations Records, will feature across the week. We invite you to experience Belfast as a thriving musical city. It is a place that sustains regular nights, festivals with character and a variety of scenes. There is no better week to take it all in.

Belfast City Council’s Belfast Music Week is co-ordinated by the Oh Yeah Music Centre, and supported by the Northern Ireland Tourist Board.

Exhibition

Adventures In Clubland: Noel and Maurice Watson Oh Yeah Music Centre, 11-16 November. Belfast brothers Noel and Maurice Watson began DJing in London in 1982 before pioneering early warehouse parties. They were adept at mixing and cutting, scratching and editing live. They supported The Clash and worked on the iconic Electro Streetsounds LPs.

BMW2013_Brochure (3).indd 5

By 1985 they were resident DJs at the hugely influential Delirium club, hosting the biggest names in hip hop before changing the music policy towards house/acid. Adventures In Clubland is the story of a seminal club era and proof of the Watson legacy. This was recently part of an ICA exhibition in London.

Nashville - Music City Music Council Presentation. 5.30pm to 6.30pm.

“Google has become the verb for discovery in the modern world. That combined with the intertwining of music and tech in a more powerful way than in previous integrations leads to the need for today’s creator to add ‘digital creativity’ to their skill sets. If you do not understand the power of technology and its implications for the new music business, you will be left behind.” www.googleforcreators.com.

The Music City Music Council (MC2) is an association of business leaders charged by Mayor Karl Dean with developing strategies toward heightening the awareness and development of Nashville as the global Music City. In 2009 Mayor Dean and a handful of industry leaders conceived a new forum dedicated to growing and diversifying Nashville’s world-wide reputation as Music City. Music and entertainment in Nashville is a true industry cluster. It is estimated that the music industry helps to create 56,000 jobs within the Nashville area and has a total economic impact of $10 billion.

Hosted by Mark Montgomery.

PICK OF THE DAY An Evening for Seamus Heaney The Ulster Orchestra and Stephen Rea ‘a poet to be grateful for’ Waterfront Hall, 8pm, £15  After his native South Derry, Belfast was the place most deeply lodged in Seamus Heaney’s memory bank, part of the ever-present ‘home front’ in his poetry. It was in Belfast he grew from uncertain student to published poet, from teenager to husband and father. And it was to Belfast he constantly returned for readings, talks, and public events especially at his much loved Queen’s University. This closing concert of Belfast Music Week celebrates those

BMW2013_Brochure (3).indd 53

longstanding and creative connections between the city of Belfast and the poetry of Seamus Heaney. The Ulster Orchestra will perform music that both inspired the Nobel Laureate as well as music inspired in turn by his poetry. There will also be a chance to hear some of the music he specifically remembered at key moments in his life, ranging from his time as young lecturer in Belfast to his global standing as a Nobel Laureate. Interspersing the music will be extracts of his poetry, alongside interviews and written memoirs. The concert will be broadcast live on BBC Radio Ulster/Foyle.
