The Traditional Albums of 2015....so far.

In 2014 we undertook to create an online space for traditional album launches and it has proven to be a great success.
This launch series refers to the online environment only and not to radio or live launches. 
As we progress, the advantages of an "Official Online Launch" are becoming even more apparent as it gives you access to our news stream and audience which is now quite large. Over the last 12 months over 130,000 readers have visited Tradconnect.

We strongly believe that introducing your fans to your music for the first time is a very important moment.  For that reason we are making Tradconnect the home of new releases.  It will be the first place that you can hear a track from new albums, even ahead of Facebook, YouTube and Twitter. 
So wherever you see the words Tradconnect Official Album Launch check it out.  There is also something special about being part of new release, for us as a site, and for our readers. 
 

Detailed below is a summary of the albums that we covered in 2015. If you have a traditional album in production and want to take part then please contact us.

His debut album was released in 2003 and introduced a young musician with immense potential.  For over 10 years he has been touring as the fiddle soloist with the show Riverdance.  This has expanded his influences and exposed him to a wide variety of music and styles and this feeds into this recording.
