Duke Special on song to celebrate historic Belfast buildings

By Staff Reporter

Singer Duke Special will be joined by other artists to raise awareness of the threats to and successes of some of Belfast's most historic sites and buildings.

The Ulster Architectural Heritage Society received funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for the project, Buildings of Belfast - Heritage in Song.

Led by local singer/songwriter Brigid O'Neill, local artists including Duke and Anthony Toner will compose songs with her around the heritage theme.

The Heritage Angel Awards aim to celebrate unsung angels of local heritage and are funded by the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation and the Department for Communities.

The material will be performed at the Heritage Angel Awards NI Ceremony in the Grand Opera House on Tuesday, November 7.

Applications for the event close on Tuesday, August 15.
