Oiche Chultúir – Culture Night on TG4
Fearghus will be one of the artists featured in a special programme on TG4 for Culture Night 2021
To celebrate Culture Night 2021, TG4 visits some of the Gaeltacht areas to meet musicians and artists and get a flavour of the rich tapestry of arts and culture in the Gaeltacht areas. Alongside a performance by Fearghus recorded on the beach in Ring, where he grew up, the programme will feature Gaeltacht vignettes including Caitlín Nic Gabhann playing music in Amharclann Ghaoth Dobhair; and Diane Ní Chanainn with Meitheal Cholmcille; Caoimhe & Séamus Ó Flatharta singing at An tSeanchéibh in An Spidéal. It will also feature some poetry from Dairena Ní Chinnéide agus Cathal Ó Searcaigh. The visual artist Cathal Mac Fhionnghaile will join us from Inis Bó Finne and we will hear from a new generation of musicians and composers with Ensemble Mhúscraí in Baile Bhuirne.
