After the success of its first appearance at the Retro Rooms Show earlier this month, Buskers' Den is back at by popular demand and will be taking centre stage at the Totally Bazaar Vintage & Handmade Fair this Sunday.

Host Della Storm will be in charge of the proceedings again  and she has added a few more retro 60’s and 70’s songs to her repertoire which she loves singing and hopes we will all enjoy hearing!

Co-host Mike Donaghy is busy writing a film score, teaching at his music school YMS Ireland and gigging all over the place, but we've managed to pin him down for a few songs this Sunday!

We are delighted to have multi-talented musician, singer, and songwriter Katie Richardson performing for us. Katie is a rising star who has dueted on stage with Duke Special and was recently guest singer with Inishowen Gospel Choir. She's in demand and we're honoured to have her join us at Totally Bazaar.

Another new performer for Buskers' Den is singer and actress Kerri Quinn. Her most recent role was in the BBC drama Betrayal of Trust and she’s now preparing to tour with the musical Dancing Shoes - The George Best Story - in Ireland and the UK, but before she goes we’ve managed to grab her for a performance this Sunday.

Katie and Kerri will be performing in Buskers' Den from 12pm this Sunday so be sure to arrive early to catch this performance from these two very talented gals. You won't want to miss this!

Robyn Farah delighted us at the Retro Rooms show with her unique style of singing, and her version of Can't Get No Satisfaction was a real crowd pleaser! We can't wait to hear what she's going to do next!

Having sung with local bands including the Adventurers, Alison McGuinness has recently formed her own band called ‘Alison’s Hotel’ and they recently performed their debut gig at Auntie Annies in Belfast. She’s currently working on a 1920’s/30’s blues style album with slide guitar player Dermot Rooney and we’re really looking forward to hearing some samples of this music from Alison this Sunday.

Charismatic musician Paul Olphert has supported famous groups such as Snow Patrol & Razorlight, and has performed at the Queens Festival, the V festival and Glastonbury Festival, and we are looking forward to him returning to Buskers' Den to wow us with his guitar playing.

When Geoff Hatt sang in the Retro Rooms with his ukulele he created quite a stir, not to mention a lot of smiling faces! As Geoff is such a versatile musician we’re not quite sure what to expect this time but whatever it is we’re really looking forward to it as we know it will be unique and stylish.

Tracy Dempsey is a class act who brings a touch of understated glamour to the Den. She promised last time to soothe weary hearts and still fevered minds, which is exactly what she did with her eclectic mix of songs and sultry vocals. Tracy will be back this Sunday 3rd April and we can’t wait to hear her sing away all our cares again.

Singer and songwriter Amanda Agnew recently had a No.2 hit in the NI Charts with her song ‘Haven’t Met You’ and she will be singing a brand new song for us in Buskers' Den. Amanda will be accompanied this Sunday by her brother Andy on the Mandolin and we can’t wait.

Totally Bazaar takes place at the Holiday Inn, Ormeau Avenue, Belfast from 11am to 4.30pm on Sunday 3rd April and admission costs £3.
