Irish traditional music (also known as Irish trad, Irish folk music, and other variants) is a genre of folk music that developed in Ireland. Irish traditional music has endured more strongly against the forces of cinema, radio and the mass media than the indigenous folk music of most European countries. This was possibly because the country was not a geographical battleground in either of the two world wars. Another potential factor was that the economy was largely agricultural, where oral tradition usually thrives. From the end of the second world war until the late fifties folk music was held in low regard.
Líadan’s first full album delivers on the promise shown thus far and introduces an exciting new contender in the Irish traditional band stakes. Featuring 14 tracks of music and song, their instrumental and vocal prowess is displayed in its fullest capacit. íadan has created a unique style of distinctive interpretation of Irish traditional music. They feature three highly talented lead vocalists all blessed in the Gaelic and English vernacular, where the traditional and sean-nós song idioms gel with suitable acapella, harmonies and instrumental arrangements. While their reputation has risen, Líadan’s trade remains the same. One has the feeling that this is only the beginning of something wonderful’. John O’Regan, Irish Music Magazine. Track list and audio samples: Dan O’Connell’s Favourite, The Race Classic, The Gullane (Polkas).

Traditional Irish music is a full body experience: the upbeat tempos compel you to dance a jig, clap your hands and join in. And that's what trad music is all about, joining in and having the craic (fun). Knowing your seisúns from your céilís. First things first, learn the lingo. The two places you’re most likely to experience trad music in Ireland are a seisún and a céilí – and there's a difference between the two. A trad music seisún (pronounced: seh-shoon) can best be described as an informal gathering of musicians. Often, it’ll kick off with just a guitar. But before long you’ve.
