Simon Wood 05:23, Ireland

This is a very special video; a unique opportunity for a virtual collaboration to celebrate a true song of hope in uncertain times! Lockdown gave musicians from the Ulster Orchestra the chance to partner with renowned folk singer/songwriter Colum Sands on a brand-new arrangement of his song ‘Better Times’, from his newly released album ‘The Song Bridge’.

Colum’s band is comprised of Tabitha Benedict, Nuala Curran, Ben Sands, Karen Tweed and Anne Harper and they are joined by Ioana Petcu-Colan, Michael Alexander, Megan Royce, Scott Lowry, Richard Guthrie and Jonathan Simmance from the Ulster Orchestra.
