Clíona Ní Bhuachalla and Lynette Fay breathe new life into the tradition of ‘Nollaig na mBan’, encouraging the whole country to mark the occasion with an all-female line-up concert – Oíche na mBan.
‘Nollaig na mBan’, is the day when traditionally the women of Ireland handed over the dosmetic chores to the men of the house after a busy Christmas and celebrate their own mini Christmas. Historically a custom associated with Munster, this female empowering festival is gaining momentum and has now been reclaimed as a cultural movement in many Irish communities throughout Ireland.
Recorded live at the Empire Music Hall in Belfast, Oíche na mBan is an eclectic blend of top Irish and International female music artists, each celebrating the women of Ireland in this exciting new TV calendar event. Artists include: Bronagh Gallagher, Sibéal, Heather Small, Lumiere, Una Healy, Gráinne Holland, Lisa McHugh and Ríoghnach Connolly.
