Living Tradition Magazine is 100 this week!

Living Tradition Magazine - Issue 100 now out! The Scottish based magazine, which started in 1993 and has been published every two months since then, has reached Issue 100. I've been involved since Issue 1, and while the magazine has had some rocky times the commitment behind it has never faltered.

Issue 100 is now in print, with some content and more details available online at The Living Tradition website.

This is a publication which is dedicated to promoting the music and culture we all love, and deserves our support.

Here are some words from the magazine's official press release:

THE LIVING TRADITION MAGAZINE REACHES 100: Longstanding traditional music magazine celebrates its 100th issue this February and looks back over 20 years of promoting the best of traditional folk music.

Back in 1993, Pete and Heather Heywood and a team of traditional musical enthusiasts started a journey.  With a desire to help promote the many things that were happening in the traditional music world and to point people to the great music that was available, they founded The Living Tradition magazine.


Over 20 years later, The Living Tradition is still going strong and is the authoritative voice for lovers of traditional folk music in the UK, Ireland and beyond.  It is distributed widely and is a key source of information for enthusiasts all over the world.  While many others have diversified to cover a broader range of music, The Living Tradition has stayed true to its stated aim; to provide news, reviews and information from the world of traditional music.  Informing, debating, reporting, supporting and, at times, inspiring, The Living Tradition is essential reading and really is the definitive guide to the traditional and folk music scene.


There are messages coming in from all over the world congratulating us on our commitment and achievements over a long period of time, demonstrating the very positive relationships and respect that The Living Tradition enjoys among artists, enthusiasts and organisers.


New editor, Fiona Heywood said: “We are proud to reach this important milestone and excited to see what the future holds.  With a new editorial and production team and a renewed passion to continue the work, who knows what we can achieve.”


If you are interested to see this glossy, full colour, 68 page magazine, the team at LT are happy to send you a sample copy to whet your appetite.  Simply drop them an email at and give them your details.
