Horslips Live With The Ulster Orchestra is the fourth live album by Irish prog/folk band Horslips.
It was recorded at the Waterfront in Belfast on March 17, 2011 St Patrick’s Day.
Their last live album, Live At The O2 was recorded in November 2009 so there is about 16 months between them but the involvement of the orchestra made this special enough to be broadcast live by BBC Radio Ulster.
