Description

Here we identify the current trends in the Irish music scene: the new talent and their prospects, their health of the scene and Ireland’s relationship with the major transnational music firms. We include case studies on Ireland’s thriving hip-hop scene, the new multi-cultural acts, as well as Girl Band and Lankum, both of whom recently signed with Rough Trade. In addition, we survey the local media, venues, music lobby groups and labels and critically examine the ways in which they support local talent.
