Traditional Irish Music
Tradconnect was established in 2011 as an independent music channel that connects Irish, Scottish and other traditional musicians across the world. Whilst initially focused on Irish traditional music the site has expanded to cover music that falls under the general ‘Celtic’ genre including Scottish, Breton, Glacian and related music.
Over the years Tradconnect has grown and now attracts up to 150,000 unique readers annually with close to 1,000 unique daily visitors.
Over 150 Irish and Scottish radio broadcasters use the site on a weekly basis to download the latest albums via our Download Centre, a private portal that provides access to the latest music. To date, Tradconnect has worked with over 130 Irish and Scottish artists and over 55,000 tracks have been distributed.
Tradconnect has also partnered with RTE Culture to further expand reach.
