Traditional Irish Music
In the Autumn of 2014 we undertook a Songwriters Showcase on Tradconnect and were delighted when Christy Moore came on board with us to listen to the material. We expected maybe 30 songs, and in the end we received 65. The showcase was about giving exposure to writers and proved a major success. Thousands of readers listened to the songs and it was one of the most successful campaigns that we have run on the site.
The task for Christy was a big one, as the quality of the material was very strong. There is never really a ‘best’ or a ‘winner’ in these situations and picking out one song is difficult.
In the end Christy went with the song “Forgotten Sons” by Dublin band The Jeremiahs. They have just release a video of the song which we include below.
