The much celebrated music and comedic talent of the Walled City has just found itself a new platform - thanks to Peter McDonald.
The Playhouse theatre manager has launched www.SherlockStudios.com, a showcase for local talent.
Already the site boasts four ‘Walled City Sessions’, featuring the songs of Conor McAteer, Betty Joyce, Connor McGowan and Ben Kelly.
The local singer-songwriters perform a number of songs and also talk about their careers to date. Also featured on the site is ‘The Movie Quiz’, a panel quiz show featuring the comedy musings of ,among others, Mickey Bartlett, Ray McCrossan, Colin Geddis, Sorcha Shanahan and presenter, Peter E. Davidson.
“We had the idea about a year ago and fleshed it out from there, worked on scripts and getting the right people in,” said Peter McDonald.
“It is all linked to The City Of Culture bid. We know that a lot of attention will fall on Derry in 2013 so our aim is to have the best local talent up online, available so that those looking to book acts can see exactly what we’re capable of.”
Sherlock Studios hope to have a new podcast posted on a weekly basis.
Next into the studio to record will be Alan Wright.
Peter said; “Alan’s a local musician and actor and a very talented so that should be more than entertaining!”
