Editor's Viewpoint: A truly stylish start

Ithe 2013 UK City of Culture celebrations in Londonderry/Derry hit all the right notes last night with its Sons and Daughters concert which started the year of celebrations in style.

Few other cities in the UK could boast such a show of talented performers in a line-up which included Phil Coulter, Dana, Snow Patrol and Nadine Coyle - as well as actress Amanda Burton and the Undertones.

Derry has long been a pivotal city in the history of this island, and its tremendous achievement in winning the accolade of City of Culture - and now starting it so confidently - bodes well for us all.
