Three young musicians from Northern Ireland - Joshua Burnside, Jealous Of The Birds and Roe - are taking part in this year's South By Southwest showcase.

It's the world's largest gathering of the music, media and film industries in Austin, Texas.

The trio are supported by the Arts Council and Invest NI's new collaboration with the PRS Foundation and its International Showcase Fund (ISF). The ISF offers musicians who are at critical stages of their careers the chance to promote their work through showcasing performances and networking with industry leaders.

Ciaran Scullion, head of music at the Arts Council, said: "The Arts Council of Northern Ireland is committed to providing valuable, meaningful opportunities for our artists to develop their careers."
