After our New Year’s Day special celebrating the live recording of sessions with 100 bands, Ceol ar an Imeall is back for its fifth series next week. The new series will air every Tuesday at 11.30pm and Wednesday at 9pm.

There are some amazing live sessions from 21 Irish acts featuring in the new series; Young Wonder, Le Galaxie, Mick Flannery, Kodaline, Original Rude Boys, Kid Karate, White Collar Boy, Daithi and loads more. And we have interviews with some awesome international acts including Julia Holter, Parquet Courts, The Naked and Famous, MGMT, Chelsea Wolfe, AlunaGeorge, Ghost Poet, Everything Everything and more.

Myself and the good people at Red Shoe Productions are really proud of this new series. It’s a feat in itself to get to five series of alternative music programming, and it’s a delight to offer Irish acts a platform for audiences to encounter awesome music, and to bring some of the most interesting acts in the world today to an Irish TV show. So I hope you enjoy it, innit.
