We’re delighted to announce the finalist groups in our second nationwide Waltons World Masters / RTÉ lyric fm Gospel & Soul Competition – this time to support gospel and soul legend Mavis Staples at the National Concert Hall!

Here they are, in alphabetical order, with links to their descriptions, photographs and videos on our website: A Glór Gospel, B & The Honeyboys, Gardiner Street Gospel Choir, Maynooth Gospel Choir and Tig Linn.

The five finalists’ entries have been sent on to Mavis Staples herself for her to decide on the winning group, which will be announced by Marty Whelan on RTÉ lyric fm’s Marty in the Morning show on Friday, 5 October – and perform as support for Mavis and her group on Saturday, 3 November. To all the great groups who participated in this year’s competition – Thank you! And to those groups that weren’t chosen as finalists – We wish you the very best in our next competition!
