Traditional Irish Music
Since 2016 Tradconnect has worked with over 150 traditional artists, assisting them in the distribution of newly released albums to the world’s media. We have distributed over 50,000 tracks to 120 Irish Radio Broadcasters that we have partnered with.
We simply upload the artists album to a private area on Tradconnect, where 120 pre-approved broadcasters can download it to play on their various radio shows. We include a sample playlist of the entire album, liner notes and other links. In addition we create an article like this which is featured on Tradconnect and fed out to our various social media sites, Facebook, Twitter etc. While the focus is on Irish, we also cover Scottish, Breton, Welsh, Manx and other Celtic music. Organisations like Gael-Linn and Clo-lar-Chonnacht avail of the service and the response has been very positive.
If that wasn’t enough, we also feature many of these articles on our RTE Culture Page and phone App, downloaded by 1.5m people.
So for maximum exposure for your new or classic album contact us.

A quick note to congratulate you on the fantastic concept of a Music Download Centre, making albums instantly accessible to media. Best of luck with your endeavors, which are making a great contribution to the scene. Oisín MacDiarmada
This is a spectacular idea. Dan Neely (Irish Echo)
Wonderful news for Tradconnect – Good luck with it all – and thanks for doing so many good things for so many people!!! Niamh Parsons
I've been waiting years for a service like this to get the best new Celtic music available to share with the listeners of my radio show. I've tried some other similar websites that cover all genres, but the quality and quantity of Celtic music just wasn't there. Having one genre-specific place for Celtic artists to easily get their music to Celtic radio broadcasters is a win-win for everyone - the musicians, the radio hosts, but most especially the fans!

What a great idea! A place for those of us who love Trad and look to share it! At times it can be tough to find new Trad music here in the States, and this group allows me download new music that my listeners haven't heard. I always look forward to discovering artists that I may not have access to, and being able to introduce those artists to my listeners! Tim Larkin
This idea is pure genius on so many levels. Bud Sargent
A splendid idea that enables broadcasters and lovers of Irish Trad. rapid access to new and reissued recordings to play on air. This should be a win for artists and broadcasters. Rick Rubin
This is wonderful. Where else would we find these wonderful artists and comments being added about being played on various stations. It is great for the Artists, but more importantly the radio listeners are able to hear these new artists. Alan Hossack
I am so excited to be added to this group. I have my own collection of music, but like to hear and play new groups as well. TradConnect has been a great way to stay in touch with what's happening on the trad scene in Ireland and keep abreast of new groups. Having a central 'clearinghouse' to come to and put musicians in touch with broadcasters is an invaluable resource that is going to benefit everyone. Chris Higgins
