Here at Ballymena Today we love seeing acts and artists who are regulars on out playlists doing well. Recently we spotted SOAK, who we featured here, on the shortlist to win a Northern Ireland music prize. Up against the likes of Duke Special, Ciaran Lavery & Ryan Vail, and Tim Wheeler we are quietly confident that SOAK might just go home with an award.

Recently we also featured Ballymena act Lilla Vargen – if you didn’t catch that blog post then find out more here. The beautiful singer, songwriter got an invite to perform her song “This is Love” at Mount Stewart as part of the Burberry Acoustic which supports new musical talent. Click here to view more from Burberry Acoustic and just play the video below to see Lilla Vargen in action. 

And for anyone who was following our reports about musicians who were playing at the Gig’n the Bann but didn’t have a chance to be there, you might just be able to grab a listen. The Gribben Girls recently shared that their musical night was recorded by BBC Radio Ulster and will be available to listen to here.

Phew, that is us up to date for now. Please keep sending us your favourite local musical acts from Ballymena and throughout Northern Ireland.
