If you don’t wish to read through the notes below, you can go straight to playlist T, part 9 on YouTube here.
The ninth in a series of the ten most popular videos on a number of YouTube channels to which I subscribe and which I visit regularly to listen to some great music which the channelmeisters have put together, some of it not available elsewhere. The selections are presented in ascending order of popularity, showing the number of views at the day the playlist was created.
Livetrad (340 videos as of today). The YouTube channel of the award winning live web streaming platform for traditional Irish music. Regular webcasts, big names, up-and-coming musicians, concerts, sessions…
You can fine them at https://www.youtube.com/user/Livetrad/. The channel is well worth taking some time to explore properly but hopefully this “top ten” will give you a taste of their output.
