The Home of Irish Traditional Music,
Folk and Ballads
A non-profit website dedicated to the music of Ireland.
We examine the origins of Irish Traditional music and take a look back at the folk and ballad music phenomenon of the 1960s in Ireland which became known as the ‘Ballad Boom’.
We look at the musicians at the centre of all this and how many became household names.
A number of them have earned legendary status for their enormous contribution to, and impact on, Irish music.
We also have a first-hand account of the 1960s folk music scene in Dublin from one of the performers.
We hope you enjoy the website.
Feel free to contact us (see on right).
We would love to hear from you.
