Stripped Down: Leo Miyagee // Belfast Groove Collective



Stripped Down at The Crescent is a series of gigs that brings together some of the most talented original acts currently working in Northern Ireland, performing stripped down versions of their songs.

Usually, a song starts life in a bedroom, a living room, or a rehearsal room, and it grows over time. Eventually by the time it gets performed by a full band or recorded in the studio it has matured and developed. Stripped Down hopes to bring some of these songs back to that early, genuine stage of life.

Stripped Down has been programmed by The Crescent’s Music Associate 23/24, Donal Scullion, who has been collaborating with our Technical Manager, Gareth Doran, to curate this series. Over a number of shows you will discover a mix of established acts, rising stars and emerging talent, representing Northern Irish Hip Hop, R&B, Soul, Funk, Pop, Rock, Indie and more.

For September’s edition of Stripped Down, the focus is on Hip Hop & Soul as we welcome to The Crescent Leo Miyagee and the Belfast Groove Collective.  

These events are BYO; bring along a bottle, sit back and let the music take over, and enjoy these two incredible acts perform in an intimate setting.


Leo Miyagee with his band is a captivating force in Irish hip-hop. Fresh from their dazzling debut at the Northern Ireland Music Prize last November and an exhilarating UK and Irish Tour, Leo Miyagee and his band exude an unparalleled presence.
