As part of the 2012 Temple Bar Trad Fest, taking place from 25—29 January next, the Irish Music Rights Organisation (IMRO) will again host a series of traditional music showcase concerts and master classes over the course of the festival.
While any traditional music acts can apply for the showcase slots, they tend to be seen as a launch pad for newer acts, and earlier this year featured Goitse (see below), Seána Davey, Torcán (pictured and see below) and Brendan O’Sullivan.
Any traditional music groups or individual performers interested in being considered for one of these showcase slots should email a link to their website to showcase [at] imro [dot] ie before 15th December or post a CD to the IMRO office.
