Live with the Ulster Orchestra

Live with the Ulster Orchestra is a live album by Irish Celtic rock band Horslips, recorded with the Ulster Orchestra on St Patrick's Day 2011, at the Belfast Waterfront for BBC Northern Ireland. The inspiration for the performance came after Paul Brady's set with an orchestra the previous year, after which BBC executive producer Declan McGovern suggested doing something similar with Horslips. Rehearsals with the 69-piece orchestra took place the day before and the concert was recorded for BBC Northern Ireland. The setlist is drawn principally from the band's albums The Táin and The Book of Invasions.[2]
