Aniar TV Announce Music Series With TG4 Ahead of TradFest 2018
08 Jan 2018 : Nathan Griffin
Aniar TV has announced that it is working with TG4 and Temple Bar Company, to produce a new 6-part series of traditional music during TradFest 2018, which is due to run for a week at the end of January in the heart of Dublin City.

TradFest has been running for over 10 years now and it platforms Irish traditional music in a week-long festival in the heart of the Irish capital city annually. The newly formed television production company Aniar TV is looking forward to showcasing some of the best musicians and singers to TG4’s loyal music following with this brand-new series – ‘Tradfest ar TG4’

The series will be recorded in various venues around the capital including The Printworks in Dublin Castle and Na Píobairí Uilleann. The concerts will include performances from Téada, Frankie Gavin, Blazin' Fiddles, Shelbey Lynne & Alison Moorer, as well as others to be announced.

Speaking about the announcement, Proinsias Ní Ghráinne, Commissioning Editor TG4 said:

"TG4 is delighted to partner with TradFest and Aniar TV to bring this new series to our screen, which showcases the riches of our tradition to TV audiences in Ireland and throughout the world. Music brings magic to TG4's programming schedule and we continue to develop new programming ideas suitable for loyal music followers and a wider TV audience. "

Niamh Ní Bhaoill, Creative Director of Aniar TV added:

“We are delighted to have this opportunity to bring national and international performers to TG4’s growing traditional music audience, and to showcase some of Ireland’s up and coming new talent. Aniar TV is very much looking forward to working with Temple Bar Company and TG4 to showcase the best of TradFest to the widest possible audience.”                                   

A spokesperson from Temple Bar Company commented:                                                           

Temple Bar Company welcomes the opportunity for a wider audience to experience TradFest through this partnership with TG4 and Aniar TV. Now in our 13th year TradFest is Irelands largest festival of Irish and Folk music celebrating our musical heritage. 2018s festival features some of the best Irish and international established and emerging musicians. Audiences are in for a real musical treat.”        

The series will also introduce a new presenter to our screens who is a well-known young musician herself – Doireann Ní Ghlacáin. Audiences will be treated to a fresh, inside look at the traditional music world through the eyes of Doireann as she travels around her native city.

‘TradFest ar TG4’, produced by Aniar TV for TG4 will be broadcast later in 2018.
