Trad&Now Live! Is Here

by | Sep 24, 2023 | Articles, Industry News

Trad&Now Live! is a free international streaming service for Australian folk music in its broadest sense. It has been live on air since July and has gone ahead in leaps and bounds since then. There are already over 5,000 tracks programmed with another 5,000 to be added by the end of the year.

Trad&Now Live! can be heard 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and all music heard was originally recorded in Australia and is available on a CD available from the Trad&Now website. It has attracted listeners from around Australia as well as overseas, particularly the USA, UK, Japan and New Zealand.

Genres included are traditional and contemporary folk music, bluegrass, acoustic blues, roots, Australiana, Americana, Celtic, World music, and traditional dance music with a little bit of bush poetry, all as heard in many folk festivals around Australia. More music is added every week.

This is the first such service for Australian folk music and is an ideal medium for making Australian folk music available to everyone at any time all around Australia and anywhere in the world as well. It’s like a Spotify for Australian recorded folk music. Playlists and other content information are available on the Home Page of the T&N website. Just scroll down past the Magazine Cover. You can also listen from the T&N Home Page. One hour long specific genre programs are scheduled on the even number hour from 4 AM until 10 PM every day.
