Ballyclare High School Daisy Johnston songwriting competition

Daisy's singing success

Congratulations to Ballyclare High School pupil, Daisy Johnston, winner of the ‘Harbour Unplugged’ song writing competition.

Daisy performed and posted a lockdown livestream on Instagram for Harbour Unplugged in May and following this performance was encouraged to enter the competition.

Daisy was successful in reaching the semi-final with six others and faced a public vote to see who make the final three.

The final took place on zoom, Daisy played two of her songs to the audience and the four judges. As the winner, she was interviewed on Bangor FM, received a cash prize and will be given opportunities to play live once the pandemic has passed.

Daisy, commented,

“I am over the moon at this success and the opportunities it will bring. I have now mastered the art of the home studio set up but I still prefer playing to live audiences.”
