Some of the best in Northern Ireland music is featured in a special radio show to mark the Good Friday Agreement.
British Council's global radio show, Selector, which is broadcast in over 35 countries to over four million listeners every week, shines a spotlight on the UK’s best emerging talent, and for our Peace and Beyond week, it will focus on Northern Ireland and the 25th anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement.
It will include an interview with the editor of Dig With It, Stuart Bailie, who will talk about how music has helped conflicts in the past and how it helps currently - playing tracks from Stiff Little Fingers, Chalk, Susie Blue and Phil Kieran. There will also be interviews with three-piece Derry-Londonderry pop-punk group Cherym, County Down musician Lemonade Shoelace, and BBC presenter Gemma Bradley. In addition, listeners will hear from Northern Ireland not-for-profit organisation Free The Night, and Cartin, one of Derry-Londonderry’s most exciting new producers, will play his favourite tracks.
Also features tracks from Hannah Peel, Calibre, Robocobra Quartet (live from our showcase at SXSW), CBAKL, Chris Doherty, HBE.UK, Hyfin & Jordan Adetunji, MC TOSA & DJ Fat Ronaldo, Jordan Nocturne, Kab Driver - En Route (preference remix), Electric Octopus, Celia Tiab and Warriors of the Dyscoteque.
