The Belfast Festival at Queens – Emily and the Red Clay Halo band

The Belfast Festival at Queens has a long history and is not your average festival riding on the coat tails of others.

This celebration of all things cultural has been building its reputation for 50 years and attracts some of the most respected names from across the art forms including music, art, dance, drama, comedy and poetry. Some giants of the stage and screen have thrilled crowds over the years including Laurence Olivier and Jimi Hendrix.

This year’s festival was no different featuring some truly world class talent from the world of art and music including Elvis Costello & Bettye LaVette. O2 International Sim have been one of the major supporters of the festival and have helped to produce the Festival Music Club section. O2 filmed some of the highlights of this year’s festival and you can see one of those here. This video captured an enchanting performance from Australian singer Emily Barker and the Red Clay Halo band as they play their most celebrated number ‘Pause’.

“Heartfelt songwriting… bridging the gap between folk, country and Fleetwood Mac.” The Times

Emily Barker and the Red Clay Halo band have been winning awards and praise this year for their unique take on pop music that is influenced from across the musical spectrum from classical to rock, country and folk.
