In the wake of their triumph at this year's Northern Ireland Music Prize, Elma Orkestra (Eoin O'Callaghan) and Ryan Vail celebrate their award-winning album Borders.

Born on opposite sides of the border in Derry, the two previously solo artists have united their individual perspectives on the city, its divisions, and potential futures for Northern Ireland - resulting in the collaborative audio-visual project, Borders. The album “was written with the mindset that we were scoring the border between the North and South of Ireland. While performing the album live, the audience will see a visual journey across various parts of the border”, says Vail.

Bringing together two of Ireland’s most forward-thinking musicians and performers, alongside a host of featured guest artists, the album also features an appearance on "My Island" from renowned spoken word artist tephen James Smith who will provide support on the night.
