Ian Lynch (of groundbreaking Irish traditional group Lankum) was also enlisted as the livestream's special guest.
Ronan Kealy will be joined by the charismatic (and social media savvy) pop artist CMAT and Ian Lynch of Lankum for the show, set to start at 8pm tonight.
Junior Brother and CMAT (real name Ciara Mary-Alice Thompson) will play a brand new collaboration at the gig, following the release of CMAT's supremely catchy latest single 'I Wanna Be A Cowboy, Baby!'.
Previous singles 'Rodney' and 'Another Day (kfc)' have garnered excitement for the future of CMAT, and Junior Brother has already created a loyal fanbase thanks to his unmissable live shows and unique brand of Irish storytelling.
Chosen as one of RTÉ's Rising Irish Stars of 2018, and as one of The Irish Times' contenders to break through in 2019, Junior Brother's forward thinking sound has catapulted him onto Ireland's musical stage.
Ian Lynch sings and plays Uilleann pipes, concertina, tin whistle and percussion with Lankum.
The folk group picked up Album of the Year at the 2019 RTÉ Choice Music Prize for The Livelong Day following their 2017 debut Between The Earth And Sky.
A creator of new songs and archaeologist of old, Lynch brings the past up to the present, merging the Experimental with the Traditional, Folk with Punk, Drone with the Sean Nós.
Tickets for the 'Imagining Ireland' livestream show are €7 from Dice.
