Introducing the Belfast Music iPhone app!
Imagine there was a way to discover the rich musical heritage of a world-renowned city, through a mixture of historical anecdotes and street level music info, accessible anywhere, anytime. It exists and it’s called the Belfast Music iPhone app.
The Belfast Music iPhone app showcases past legends and contemporary inspirations that have shaped the music landscape of our city. Check out where Belfast legends grew up and cut their musical teeth, and check out the many venues that show off the present wealth of musical talent. With musical accompaniment from David Holmes, Neil Hannon & The Ulster Orchestra, Rudi, The Undertones, Ash, Therapy and many more, the Music Heritage Tour takes you on a journey of old and new, covering all manner of genres, tastes, and locations.
Narrated by BBC Broadcaster Stuart Bailie, one of Northern Ireland’s champions of local music, this application lets you experience a Music Heritage tour that is equally as enjoyable whilst walking the streets of Belfast as it is lounging anywhere else in the world. Belfast locals Ricky and Ciara certainly love the scene, too!
There is an explosion of new music coming out of Northern Ireland, building on the global success of past & present artists in many genres, and with some of the best audiences in the world, Belfast can be sure that it’s legendary status lives in many musical memories.
Belfast City Council, in partnership with Filmtrip, NITB and OhYeah, has created this cool iPhone application to accompany the new Belfast Music website, and the music bus tour. And it’s all yours, absolutely FREE from the Apple iTunes store now!
