Watch Soda Blonde, Lisa O’Neill and Lankum perform on your telly box this Saturday

Words: Emily Mullen

These performances were originally recorded in Vicar Street as part of an online streaming series

As the country slowly begins hosting live music events once more, RTÉ One will be paying homage to one of the most difficult periods in the live music industry.

Recorded in December 2020, the VISION series streamed live performances from Vicar Street of some of the country’s most talented musicians.

Young and old musicians performed in the Dublin institution, hosted by the inimitable Tommy Tiernan.
