Speaking about the announcement, Proinsias Ní Ghráinne, Commissioning Editor TG4 said:
"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. "
The series will also introduce a new presenter to our screens who is a well-known young musician herself – Doireann Ní Ghlacáin. 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.
