Traditional Irish Music
Karan Casey in the process of making a new album and she's looking for help in funding it. She has started a campaign on the crowdfunding website www.kickstarter.com. In the absence of any significant record company involvement in traditional and folk music this seems to be an ideal way for fans to get involved in the creation of an album. People will pledge money which will enable Karan to arrange, record, mix, manufacture and market the album as well as pay all the musicians involved. In return they will receive rewards which range from a simple thank you or download of the album, up to playing concerts in people's houses, singing lessons over Skype and recording on someone's album.
The album will feature new songs that Karan has composed over the last couple of years. Please pass this on to anyone you feel might be interested and share the video.
All the best
Here's the link to look at the project:
