Ranging from earliest musical experiences, to sage advice to young people, to hopes for the future of the tradition, this series offers in-depth conversations with seven of Ireland’s most influential and outstanding tradition bearers.

The long-format Q&A style interviews, with performance and illustrative archival recordings, expand our understanding of these artists by exploring their influences and by seeking out their personal philosophies as traditional artists.

The fortnightly series premiered with Christy Moore on Wednesday, 5 October 2022, at 8 pm (Irish time) and is now freely available to view online at
