The Living Tradition

The Living Tradition is a full colour, bi-monthly Folk & Traditional music magazine that has been in publication for some years now. In that time we have managed to build a great reputation and solid readership base around the globe. Based in Ayrshire, Scotland and Donegal, Ireland, a dedicated team of folk and traditional music enthusiasts are the people responsible for the running of The Living Tradition, with their past experience ranging from events organisation to live performing.

The main aim of the magazine is to highlight the rich heritage of traditional music in the UK, Ireland and further afield, and attempt to bring it to a wider audience. Whilst we feel that we are certainly on the right track to achieving this aim, a little bit of extra support is always extremely welcome.

By browsing this website you can discover more about The Living Tradition and view details on our past issues plus a whole host of reviews, features and news.

If you are interested in seeing the magazine itself, then please send an email to along with your name and address and we can arrange for 1 free copy to be sent to you. This does not tie you down to subscribing in any way but we hope that you will consider becoming a regular reader.
