Ulaid & Duke Special Live Recording

We would like to record (with a live audience) an album of material which we have written and arranged together called the 'Belfast Suite'.

We did it!

On 19th Jan 2017 we successfully raised £10,140 of £10,000 target with 202 supporters in 30 days


Ulaid & Duke Special have been writing/arranging and performing together since early 2016 and would love to make a live record of the material that they have compiled i.e. 'The Belfast Suite'. Having performed the music throughout Ireland and the UK in the Autumn of 2016 and having received a hugely enthusiastic response, the lads have decided to put this incredible music to tape! In order for this to happen, however your assistance is required. Your mission should you choose to accept it is to lend us your support in the name of Art and in return receive some fantastic rewards.


8:30 PM - Friday the 20th & Saturday the 21st January 2017
