Shane celebrates in the Derry air 16.01.14

SINGING star Shane Filan will top the bill tomorrow night at a free concert to kick off Derry's year as City of Music 2014. The open-air gig is the first of Derry's legacy events organised in a bid to continue the gains won during the city's turn as UK City of Culture 2013.

Hosted by BBC Radio 1's Edith Bowman, the 'Hear the City Sing’ event will also feature local acts as well as a spectacular Global Rainbow art installation. Live music will also be held in a number of local cafes.
Mayor Cllr Martin Reilly said he was delighted the former Westlife frontman would help the city launch a great year of music ahead.
“‘Hear the City Sing’ provides the perfect combination of local talent with that of an internationally recognised performer, combining music and visual art at an inspiring event which will reach out to a wide ranging audience within and outside the city," he said.
Derry City Council director of legacy, Oonagh McGillion, added: “We have had an exceptional year not only for musical performances but also for educational and community engagement projects and now we must put into practice our Music Legacy plan. We have been given a once in a lifetime opportunity to make the most of 2013 and 'Hear the City Sing' provides the opportune event to be enjoyed by all generations.”
