Exclusive : 6 previously unseen live performances from Gradam Ceoil TG4 - 1998 to 2014

Over the last week or so we have posted a number of articles that celebrate the TG4 Gradam Ceoil awards.  The award ceremony and concert takes place next Saturday 12th April at the University Concert Hall, Limerick.  It promises to be a great night with the recipients and their special guests performing in front of a packed hall.  The concert is being recorded by TG4 and will be broadcast on Easter Sunday night, April 20th at 9.30.  We have been speaking to a number of the recipients over the last few weeks including traditional musician of the year Harry Bradley, young musician of the year Bryan O' Leary and Mick O' Brien who will receive an award for his work on the Goodman manuscripts with Emer Mayock and Aoife Ní Bhriain. This week we will also be posting up an interview with Mick Moloney on his Special Contribution award.

In March of this year we also posted up an article that looked at the success of many of our past young musicians of the year. We highlighted the fact that many have made a major impact on the traditional music scene of late, releasing albums of great quality.  With the assistance of TG4 we have unearthed 5 performances from years gone by that feature some of these musicians.  These are clips from Gradam Ceoil concerts over the years and they have not previously been seen.  They feature Caoimhín Ó Fearghail, Edel Fox, Fiddlesticks, Liam O' Connor, Méabh O' Hare, Pádraic Keane
