Beidh an rógaire rua, Hector Ó hEochagáin i lár an aonaigh i gCo an Chláir le Fleadh TV i mí Lúnasa.

Don chéad uair, tá an rógaire rua ar liosta na láithreoirí in éindí le Lynette Fay agus Máiréad Ní Chuaig agus tá sé ar bís faoina bhfuil roimhe!

Mar is dual dó, tá scéal maith aige faoin tairiscint a fuair sé ó TG4:

"Fuair mé an glaoch gutháin ó TG4 agus mé amuigh ar an ride on lawnmover sa ghairdín"

Cé nach bhfuil ceol ag Hector féin, tá dlúthcheangal aige leis an gcontae is ceolmhaire in Éirinn mar gurb as an áit sin dá bhean chéile. Luaigh Hector go bhfuil gaolta leis sa Kilfenora Céilí Band nó mar a thugann sé féin orthu "The Rolling Stones of Céilí Music"

Lynette Fay has been presenting Fleadh TV for five years and perfectly describes the importance of the Fleadh in Ireland:

The Fleadh is the heartbeat of this island, it's up there with the football and hurling All-Ireland final.

Believe it or not, this is Hector's first live TV gig and he's really excited about it, given Clare's reputation as the hub of great trad and even better craic.

If there's a special part of the country for music, it's county Clare.

Co-presenter Mairéad Ní Chuaig (who you'll know from TG4's weather reports) has been attending and taking part in competitions at the Fleadh since she was a child and calls presenting Fleadh TV her "dream gig". We're hoping to see a few steps from Mairéad during the week as we know she's got some serious sean-nós moves!

The Fleadh is about more than music - it's also about community, friendship, identity and culture. It's also where young musicians cut their teeth, meet other budding musicians and make friends for life and Hector is buzzing about hearing it all:

Just think of the thousands of other young musicians that are going to be down there. Imagine winning the under 12 tin whistle All-Ireland. People say "oh I can play the tin whistle but imagine being an All-Ireland champion, that's what happens down there".

We can't wait to see to "the future Sharon Shannon, the future Lúnasa, the future Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh" at what Hector describes as "The Electric Picnic for Trad Heads".

Among the musical guests confirmed for Fleadh TV 2017 are Lúnasa, Clannad, Sharon Shannon & Big Band, Gerry 'Banjo' O'Connor, Na Mooneys and The Finnegan McSherry Band.

The music TV programme returns to TG4 on August 18, 19 and 20, airing from 8.30pm to 11.30pm.
