Following the success of the TG4 series, Féile Éalaíne an Earagail, aired in early 2023, Aniar TV made a welcome return to film another four very special concerts at An Grianán Theatre, featuring some of the finest artists across the traditional music genre. On the final night a sold out audience watched Usher’s Island & Lisa O’Neill.

Usher’s Island sees the coming together of five of the most influential and acclaimed names in traditional Irish music- Andy Irvine and Donal Lunny, both founding members of Planxty, Paddy Glackin a member of The Bothy Band, Mike McGoldrick member of Lúnasa and Capercaillie and John Doyle who played with Solas.

Lisa O’Neill has quietly built a reputation on the Irish and international scenes with her unique folk sound. Alongside Blackbird featuring in Peaky Blinders, Lisa’s last release on the Rough Trade imprint River Lea, Heard A Long Gone Song, has garnered huge acclaim, both at home and abroad.
