The makers of the excellent Irish music documentary series This Ain’t No Disco, spiritual successor to the long running No Disco programme on RTÉ, have announced that the show will be returning with a second season, beginning New Years Day 2020.
The welcome news comes not long after the show was rejected for Arts Council funding. Despite the setback, the crew have pulled the strings necessary to produce what’s sure to be a stellar 4 episode run. Season 1 documented one of finest collections of Irish musical performances I’ve ever set eyes on, serving to bottle a moment in history that could have easily been forgotten.
To help fund the venture, they’ll be holding a fundraising event in D-Light Studios, Dublin on September 26th. With the lineup of performers that have graced the lens of main filmmaker Myles O’Rielly (Arbutus Yarns) throughout the years, there’s no telling who might play! This Ain’t No Disco Live will be hosted by Donal Dineen, who will be curating an evening of live performances and interviews.
