Traditional Irish Music
I am trying to get an idea of the small specialist music stores worldwide that sell Irish traditional CD's. By this I mean possibly the small independent stores that have a close relationship with the artists and know their music and can recommend albums to them. While I know that most of this has gone online lately, and sadly a lot of these shops are closing, there are still some independent ones around. For me here in Dublin we have the institution that is Claddagh records Claddagh Records and of course one of my other favourites Custys in Ennis. Custys of these have an online presence they also have their great stores.
So where ever you are ain the world let us know the store you use with a link if possible.
I love Custys though Powells of Shop Street, Galway is also a great place for traditional music. Brian McGrath, great banjo and piano player works there.
Custys in Ennis is very good, also give a great service by phone if u cant get to the shop, quite a good Trad shop in Nenagh Co Tipp "Noel McQuaids".
