Revisit all the folk highlights

For those that missed or want to relive the latest Cork Folk Festival, help is at hand.

Cork Folk Festival is bringing the highlights of the 41st iconic Cork folk gathering to the small screens, starting next week.

In a year like no other, the makers of Cork Folk Festival have curated a feast for the senses for followers of traditional and folk music bringing the best of local and national artists to our screens. This new six-episode series recorded at the Cork Folk Festival in October 2020 just before the second lockdown, brings us some of Munster’s finest performers along with friends from further afield.

Filmed in some of Cork’s most iconic venues including the now sadly closed Kino, Cork City Gaol, St Luke’s and Cork Opera House, the series of concerts and performances filmed behind closed doors can now be shared with all music lovers.

The 41st annual Cork Folk Festival brought us some great traditional and folk music in both intimate and large-scale settings.

The series will be screened on TG4 beginning on 2 May at 9.30pm
