A second season for this acclaimed traditional music series that  captures the very best in many of the  traditional music hotbeds around the country.  With no presenter or narration, the music and songs are left to speak for themselves.

Each episode has a dominant instrument with regional repertoires and accents, framed against a summer school or festival.Throughout the series we get a strong flavour of the festival, but also a musical portrait of the area. Solo and duet performances are abundant, letting the music breathe naturally while the incredible “once off” session is captured in its raw essence. An octogenarian master shares the billing with an emerging youngster who is causing a stir and families perform together in campsites, on barges, and in an eclectic mix of locations throughout Ireland.

The musical accents of all the regions are championed and each episode will have a dominant instrument with regional repertoires reigning supreme. This season we will travel to Baltimore, Carrick on Bannow, Doolin, Armagh and Kilfenora. We will have music from Tommy Emmanuel, Liam Ó Maonlaí and The Ó Mongáin family, to name but a few. From solos to sessions, choirs to quartets, and from a whistler in a library to a fiddler on a roof we’re given a full overview of the endless strands of our musical heritage.
