Multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, and arranger Sean O'Hagan plays a solo afternoon show show at Rosemary Street First Presbyterian Church as part of Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival on May 4.
O'Hagan currently leads avant-pop band the High Llamas, but started out with seminal Irish band Microdisney, which he co-founded in the 1980s, for several years being a member of Stereolab. His work as an arranger in film, art & cultural events have led to collaborations with the likes of Brian Wilson, Paul Weller, Super Furry Animals, Doves and Mercury Rev.
The concert is staged to remember Thomas McCabe, who opposed the formation of the Belfast Slave Ship Company in 1786. Proceeds will be given to the Northern Ireland Law Centre, with a brief introduction from historian Raymond O’Regan, author of Hidden Belfast.
Supporting is the wonderful, trad-tinged lo-fi pop of historian & musician CJ McCanny, AKA Big Monster Love - have a listen to Game Over.
Tickets cost only £8 from Ticketsolve. Doors open at 2.45pm.
