Rare footage of Phil Coulter at Derry gig
Rare-clips of Londonderry lad Phil Coulter's star-studded musical collaborations will form part of a special Millennium Forum gig which will trace his spectacular career over the past 45 years.
Coulter returns to his native city later this month for the concert which will feature rarely-seen clips of some of the outstanding artists he’s worked with, from Sandie Shaw winning the Eurovision back in 1967 to the great Luke Kelly of the Dubliners, Van Morrison, Billy Connolly and lots more.
Phil says he’s using the April 29 show to take an affectionate look back over the years, the songs he’s written, the records he’s produced and the characters he’s met.
“Of course I’ll be doing the songs that people expect - The Town I Love So Well, Scorn Not His Simplicity, Ireland’s Call and the others. It’s a more intimate show, and that’s possible now because of the network of excellent theatres now in this part of the world. I couldn’t have done this a few years ago. I’ve turned up some brilliant stuff from the archives, which will be a fantastic bonus for audiences here and elsewhere," he told the Derry Journal.
