Welcome to the Collective

Nurturing and growing musical talent

Designed to bring elite talent to the next level

The 'Magy's Farm Collective' was set up by husband and wife team Dr. Linley Hamilton and Maggie Doyle. Maggie is a former Editor of Music at BBC Radio Ulster and Linley a University Lecturer in Music at Magee, BBC Jazz broadcaster and established trumpet player.

The two operate a music space at their farm where they provide 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.

Five girls from UU Music: Niamh Murray, Cara Quinn, Rhian Brownlow, Clodagh May and Lara O'Donnell are the focus of the project and are producing amazing original songs that have been recorded and produced by an eleven-person team of mentors.
