Opry an Iúir, TG4, Wednesday 2nd November at 10.30pm



Date Posted: October 28, 2016

Following the success of the first four series, Opry an Iúir is set to return to TG4 on Wednesday 2nd November at 10.30pm. The seven-part series has received funding from Northern Ireland Screen’s Irish Language Broadcast Fund.

Hosted by the King of country music, Daniel O’Donnell and joined by Lynette Fay, they meet and perform with some of the biggest stars of country music.

Series five showcases some very special artists each with their own show: Trudi Lalor, The Three Amigos, T.R. Dallas, Derek Ryan, The High Kings, Clíona Hagan together with Michael English, and a very special Opry with the Stars episode!

Each episode sees the main artist perform a selection of their greatest hits, new exclusive material and some very special duets and collaborations. The series also features an Irish-language duet with a well-known traditional singer. Daniel duets with the country artist and in an exclusive he performs some of his own best-loved hits ‘as Gaeilge’.

In addition, to coincide with TG4’s 20th anniversary this year’s Opry also features a one-off country spectacular – ‘Opry with the Stars’ – starring Country and Irish veterans Ray Lynam, Brendan Quinn, Frank McCaffrey, Sandy Kelly and the legendary Gloria of ‘One Day At A Time’ fame. County Tyrone born, Irish musician, Bernadette Morris joins Brendan Quinn on stage for a wonderful rendition of “Ways of Man.”

Multi-instrumentalists The High Kings, fresh from a sell-out US tour, swap Nashville for Newry as they join Daniel to take us through their foot stomping set and raise the Newry roofs. They are joined on stage by renowned singer Nell Ní Chroinín, the youngest ever recipient of the TG4 Singer of the Year award.

Recorded in front of a live audience, mixing profiles/archive and comments from their biggest fans, Opry an Iúir brings the essence of Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry to Newry.

Opry an Iúir is produced by Big Mountain Productions for TG4 with funding from Northern Ireland Screen’s Irish Language Broadcast Fund.
