Music of Ireland

"The Music of Ireland - Welcome Home," a documentary featuring interviews and performances from U2, Pete Seeger, Sinead O'Connor and the Chieftans will debut on New York public television station WLIW on Feb. 17, then roll out to other PBS affiliates throughout March.

"Music of Ireland" will be available as a CD and DVD in a number of outlets: Barnes & Noble is the exclusive brick and mortar retail partner and will debut an in-store promotional campaign on March 2; Amazon.com will feature all the CD tracks digitally on a 45-day exclusive starting that same day. In addition, the CD and DVD will be bundled as a bonus for those who donate to public television during pledge drives.

The CD was produced by John Reynolds and features new material by Clannad's Moya Brennan - who also hosts the documentary - O'Connor, the Chieftans, former Irish Tenor Ronan Tynan and Shane MacGowan of the Pogues, among others.

The documentary "Music of Ireland" opens in 1960 with the success of the pioneering Clancy Brothers, and includes Liam Clancy's final U.S. television interview before his death. Other interviews include "Riverdance's" Michael Flatley, Bob Geldof and Academy Award-nominated director Jim Sheridan.

A sequel to the "Music of Ireland" is planned for later this year, and will focus on U2, Celtic Woman, The Cranberries, The Corrs, the Irish Tenors and songwriters Glen Hansard and Damien Rice.

The documentary was executive produced by The Elevation Group's Denny Young.

"For such a small country to produce such amazing talent and the way their music defines the people is just extraordinary," Young says. "It has fascinated me for most of my life and is something I wanted more people to be in tune with."

 

I don't know if this means there will be new U2 interviews in this documentary or old ones thrown in it, but if anyone in new york is able to watch it on the 17th, could ya let us know if its any good? lol thanks in advance!! :)

BTW Jackie have you any information whether or not they will be attending the meteor awards in Dublin next Friday? I have been looking to find out but can't find any info anywhere - only they aren't performing as of yet - I'll be in Dublin on the day and would like to go to see if i can spy them at the RDS if they are about!

hmm I don't know yet, but I'll try to find out!!! I bet they'll be there...I don't want to say just yet, because they haven't turned out for any of the other awards..but then again, this is Dublin. so I'll do my best to find out!! happy.gif
