Local musicians who have tunes and stories about our local area are wanted to take part in a TV programme on Songs and Stories of Ulster.

The Irish TV series is scheduled for October 2016 and it gives musicians the opportunity to perform their favourite songs and chat about the story of their locality.

North Armagh is rich in talented local musicians and full of fascinating songs and tales of the local area.

Songs & Stories presented by Henry McGlade and produced by Jamie O’Neill provides a platform for home-grown talents to showcase their talents while telling stories about people and places that have influenced their lives.

The series’ first run Songs & Stories of Connacht filmed from the lovely backdrop of Paddy’s thatched pub in Tourmakeady in County Mayo on the shores of Lough Mask proved a huge hit with viewers as it captured the essence of Irish music entertainment.

The crew is now checking out locations for the perfect Ulster venue in advance of the series being recorded in Munster and Leinster. Please send your suggestions and why they should appear on the show to songsandstories@irishtv.ie
