Celtronic Festival and Radio Foyle at Echo Echo Studios

Three fantastic collaborative events took place at Echo Echo Studios over the weekend as part of Celtronic 2016.

First up was a live outside broadcast of BBC Radio Foyle’s weekly music show Electric Mainline with Stephen McCauley. Our downstairs area proved to be a perfect space for radio and the show featured live sessions and interviews with David Kitt, Ryan Vail, Phil Kieran, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, Echo Echo Company Manager Ailbe Beirne, and Celtronic Festival Director Gareth Stewart.

Moving upstairs on Thursday evening, a packed house was treated to a stunning audio-visual performance by US synth producer Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith playing the Buchla Music Easel, with support from local producer and dj Vincent O’Callaghan.

Finally, on Saturday afternoon, we had the next generation of music fans and movers for Celtronic Kids in association with Surestart and Echo Echo Ensemble Artists – a brilliant session of play, creative movement and disco dancing. Huge thanks to all of the team involved in preparing the space and making this event such a success.
