There's a jam-packed line-up in store to mark six decades of RTÉ's The Late Late Show, with Malahide artist Dermot Kennedy performing new single 'Something to Someone'.
Oscar-nominated Kerry actor Jessie Buckley will make an appearance on The Late Late Show tonight alongside chart-topping singer-songwriter Dermot Kennedy and impressionist Mario Rosenstock.
Clannad’s Moya Brennan, Altan’s Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh, Christy Dignam and Billy McGuinness from Aslan are among those taking part, as well as Shobsy and Lyra, are among the guests marking the 60th anniversary of the RTÉ chat show.
32-year-old Irish star Jessie Buckley has risen through the Hollywood ranks, earning an Academy Award nomination for her role in The Lost Daughter alongside Olivia Colman and turns in Judy and Wild Rose.
The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art graduate made her film debut playing the lead role of Moll Huntford in Beast (2017) after placing second in BBC talent show I'd Do Anything in 2008. Buckley also starred as Sally Bowles in a West End revival of Cabaret last year, for which she won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Actress in a Musical.
The Killarney native portrayed Lyudmilla Ignatenko in the HBO miniseries Chernobyl (2019), the Young Woman in I'm Thinking of Ending Things (2020) and Oraetta Mayflower in season four of Fargo (2020).
The Kerrywoman has now curated a critically acclaimed album with renowned singer-songwriter and record producer Bernard Butler, formerly of Britpop stars Suede and McAlmont and Butler. The pair will tell Ryan Tubridy how their collaboration came to fruition tonight.
Dublin-born Without Fear musician Dermot Kennedy will join forces with RTÉ Concert Orchestra to perform his new chart-topping single 'Something to Someone'.
The new track follows the Irish singer-songwriter's 2021 single, 'Better Days', which was crowned the Choice Music Prize Song of the Year.
"To be something to someone," Dermot says of the single. "To love and be loved in return. What a comforting thought it is to know that no matter what you endure, no matter how lonely the world may seem, you’re still on somebody’s mind. It is the only thing. I want this song to be a reminder to whoever hears it that they are loved."
Mario Rosenstock will channel his inner Christy Moore with a special song, while a group of musicians will join Tubridy to share their memories of appearing on the show over the years.
Christy Dignam, Miriam Mullins, Racheal Diyaolu, Catherine Corless, Rosanna Davison, Charlie Bird and Claire Bird will also be making appearances on the show.
Tributes from past guests including Peter Kay, Imelda May, Cliff Richards, Michael Parkinson, Adam King, Conan O’Brien, Michael Flatley and Chris Hadfield will also feature tonight.
Watch The Late Late Show at 9.35pm on RTÉ One.
