Columbia, SC… Pop Quiz: Who’s playing in the Super Bowl this Sunday, Feb. 5? If you don’t know--and don’t want to know--South Carolina ETV wants you!

We’re here to save your Sunday with a super lineup of concerts and travelogues that will transport you to a happy place far away from the sidelines.

Can’t-Miss Concerts on ETV:

It all starts at 2 p.m., with Peter, Paul and Mary: Carry It On, A Musical Legacy. The program follows the four-decade long career of this seminal folk band, and features rare archival performances of some of their biggest hits, including “Blowin’ in the Wind” during the 1963 March on Washington; “The Times They Are a Changin’” at the 1964 Newport Folk Festival; and the first televised performance of their breakout song, “Lemon Tree.”

Then at 4 p.m., stay tuned for Celtic Woman: Believe. Under the direction of Emmy-nominated music producer David Downes, vocalists Chloë Agnew, Lisa Kelly, Lisa Lambe and Celtic violinist Mairead Nesbitt put the group’s signature twist on classic Irish ballads (“The Water is Wide,” “Green Grow the Rushes”); timeless pop anthems (“Bridge Over Troubled Water,” “Tears in Heaven”); and inspirational songs (“You’ll Never Walk Alone,” “Ave Maria”).

**This television special comes just weeks before Celtic Woman visits South Carolina, and fans who pledge their support to the ETV Endowment during the broadcast can receive tickets to the group’s upcoming concerts in Charleston (Feb. 24) or Columbia (Feb. 26) as their thank you gift.**

At 6 p.m., ‘60s Pop, Rock & Soul unites the era’s music legends in this all-new “My Music” special. Co-hosts Peter Noone (Herman’s Hermits) and Davy Jones (The Monkees) sing their biggest hits from the years 1965 - 1969. Also included are sounds from Frat Rock to Surf Pop, the British Beats to the Breakthrough Bands, Motown, Soul and Pop classics—with many artists appearing for the first time on the “My Music” stage.
