WELCOME to this shop which is associated with The Living Tradition magazine. We are enthusiasts for traditional music and this shop supports all of our work. The shop supports the work of the Living Tradition financially and it also supports our aim of promoting traditional music. We try our best to make available recordings which we think have special merit including many which may be hard to find. Please have a browse and see what you can be tempted with. Thank you!
THE RECORDINGS WE SELL
Many of the CDs listed on this site been reviewed in our magazine over the years. We keep some, but not all in stock, and many are now very hard to get. It may therefore take considerably longer for us to source these for you, so please be patient, we will try our best to get you these as quickly as possible.
SOME OF THE LABELS WE WORK CLOSELY WITH
We have had a long term relationship with many specialist labels and artists. Here are some easy links to some of their recordings within our shop.
The Tradition Bearers is a project concentrating on the current generation of traditional singers and includes the acclaimed Scots Songs & Ballads series of recordings. You can buy individual CDs but the whole series, 8 CDs, is available for a special price. This package also includes Ballad Tree by Alison McMorland & Geordie McIntyre. View or Buy the Recordings
DELIVERY TIMES AND SERVICE STANDARDS
We have never pretended to be a slick, quick, operation – although many of our customers find our service great. For many people we have been the last chance saloon for a special recording. Many of the recordings we list are released by small labels or by individual artists with no effective commercial distribution. If we do not list them the danger is they become invisible, yet if we do list them there can be supply headaches.
