Aniar TV is delighted to announce that it is working with TG4 and Temple Bar Company, to produce a new 6-part series of traditional music during TradFest 2018 which runs 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 our 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 and many, many more.
“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. ” Proinsias Ní Ghráinne, Commissioning Editor TG4

“Temple Bar Company welcomes the opportunity for a wider audience to experience TradFest through this partnership with TG4 and Aniar TV.

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.
