"I've been to club gigs all over the world but there is something unique about the atmosphere at Magy's Farm.
No wonder musicians love it!"

Providing opportunities for musicians

Set up by husband and wife team Dr. Linley Hamilton and Maggie Doyle, Magy’s Farm is a music space at their farm, providing opportunities for musicians to play, rehearse and perform.

In July 2020 they established the Collective, which was designed to bring elite talent to the next level and secure pathways into the industry for the most gifted young performers.

Here, you can explore both our catalogue of live gigs and video sessions within Magy's Farm Sessions, and meet the musicians who are part of Magy's Farm Collective.
