Máirtín de Cógáin and John Blake live on Concert Window 19th December

This week you will get the opportunity to hear 2 concerts on the Concert Window live streaming OPEN series featuring two well know traditional artists. It will be another real opportunity for Irish/European audiences to see this new venture in action with the concert times scheduled to suit audiences on this side of the water. We have previously written about the opportunity this presents for musicians to earn some money in the online environment.  Two thirds of the money earned goes to the artist.
