The view from the Balcony

Similar to the Black Cab Sessions and the bandstand rockers is the Irish website Balcony TV.
Founded in July 2006 by Irish filmmaker Stephen O'Regan in tandem with musicians Tom Millett and Pauline Freeman, the website (www.balconyTV.ie) has won awards for its innovative idea of getting musicians, from The Script to Tom Russell, to play live to camera on a city centre balcony.
The apartment is located on Dublin's Dame St across the road from Dublin Castle -- above The Oak pub.
They've since expanded the operation to take in apartment balconies in London, Hamburg, Poznan (in Poland) and most recently Nashville, where the view over the city is spectacular.
The site claims to have had over nine million video views.
