Northern Songs Series 2 returns on May 13th 2021 and every Thursday at 8pm for eight weeks.  This series showcases Northern Ireland’s beautiful landscapes and landmarks with songs written and performed by composers and singers from the island of Ireland.

This season’s opera singers are all either winners or finalists at our Glenarm Festival of Voice and we’ll be visiting stunning locations across counties Fermanagh, Armagh and Tyrone, with a few surprises too.

Filmed by Causeway Pictures around Northern Ireland but with a particular focus for this series on counties Fermanagh, Armagh and Tyrone, this series will feature eight films and a behind-the-scenes project too supported by Tourism Ireland.

Revisit this page for updates as we film over the next few weeks and look through our gallery to see some behind-the-scenes images of the recording and the shoot so far.
