I am delighted to be part of the team at Tradconnect working to create a place that connects traditional musicians across the globe.
Tradconnect was established in 2011 as an independent traditional music channel that connects musicians globally. Since then the site has experienced phenomenal growth. Over the 12 months of 2017 Tradconnect received 530,000 page hits from 150,000 users and every day it receives close to 1,000 unique visits.
Tradconnect’s goal is to create a strong independent channel that allows traditional musicians to access a global audience, and I am glad to contribute some of my time to achieve that goal, writing reviews and other content and providing advice to artists on how to market and promote their music.
