Colaiste Lurgan Are Looking For People To Help Out With Their Iconic Songs As Gaeilge

Songsters and musicians of Ireland, gather round and get those creative caps on. The well-known TG Lurgan is on a mission this March and are kicking off a national talent search for original music in Ireland. 

TG Lurgan has featured among the top 10 Irish produced videos on YouTube each year since bursting on the scene with their interpretation of Avicii’s ‘Wake Me Up’ in 2013 which garnered more than 5.8 million views.

A major goal for 2018 is to source several original songs and to develop, produce and record them to the highest standard during the summer courses. They have an ambitious aim to publish some “earworms” that will get stuck in people’s heads this year...

Y'know, they're the Gaeltacht behind such amazing tunes as Gaeilge like this:

TG Lurgan are issuing an invitation to composers and songsters who would work with the aim of producing quality original songs as Gaeilge. Artists and composers are not required to have Gaeilge as Irish language lyrics are modified and changed as the project evolves. 

“We are looking for composers to approach us with their own original concept, then our music engineers build a working draft. This concept is then expanded in conjunction with composer, lyrics, musicians, singers and the choir etc are then sourced during a course at TG Lurgan and the song is recorded. 

"The final piece of the puzzle is a music video being created at shot to launch the song."

So, how do you get involved?

People aged from 16 upwards can send their tapes through to NuaNós, so if you have an exciting original tune and would like to develop it into a full-blown TG Lurgan production we would love to hear from you [email protected] or check out for more details.
