Songs from An Empty Room will be an unmissable show, a memorable, poignant and historic night of Irish music in these extraordinary times.
In addition to providing an incredible night of entertainment, the broadcast will also feature fascinating insights from behind the scenes of Ireland’s event industry and the exceptional people who come together to make our extraordinary live events happen.
Speaking in advance of the performance Mick Dolan said: “The past few months have been very difficult for so many of us who dedicate our lives to bringing live music to fans across the nation”.
“We often forget the many people who put in countless hours behind the scenes to make gigs come to life. This live broadcast on RTE will allow us to come together and show our support for these industry professionals who have been particularly affected by Covid-19”.
