The Priests, Irish tenor and folk singer George Hutton, local concert pianist Ruth McGinley and jazz aficionados Scott Flanigan and Cathal Roche will be among the glittering line-up of performers at the official launch of St Columb’s School of Music on Saturday 8th February.

The School, initiated by Nicholas Morton and Louis Fields in September of last year at St Columb’s Court, close to the historic St Columb’s Cathedral, will host a lunchtime concert, as well as an evening gala performance, to mark the opening.
