Pupil Success

By Ballyclare High School on 28 January, 2021


Congratulations to Daisy Johnston who has won through to the final of the ‘Harbour Unplugged’ songwriting competition. She has performed and posted a lockdown livestream on Instagram for Harbour Unplugged in May and through this performance was encouraged to enter the competition.

The process of selection commenced a few months ago and Daisy was successful in reaching the semi- final of 6 people and who faced a public vote to see who reached the final three.

The final took place on zoom last weekend, Daisy played two of her own songs to the zoom audience and the 4 judges. She will be interviewed on Bangor Fm, has won a cash prize and will be given opportunities to play live once the virus is out of the way.

Daisy stated. ‘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 which I had to for the zoom final but I still much prefer playing to live audiences as I enjoy the buzz of that interaction.’
