The new six-part series looks at the likes of John Lydon, John Lennon, the Gallaghers, Morrissey and Marr, and Dusty Springfield, and how their celtic roots influenced them.
Starting on Thursday September 26, Guth takes some of the biggest musical icons in living memory – Bing Crosby, John Lydon, Morrissey and Marr, Dusty Springfield, John Lennon, or the Gallagher Brothers among them – and examines the role their Irish heritage played in their lives and careers. In turn, the impact they had here will be discussed.
The TG4 six-parter begins at 9.30pm on Thursday September 26.
The series is produced by Bríd Seoige and directed by Dathaí Keane.
