Music Network traditional tours are specially curated to enrich the offering to our partner promoters and audiences. Each year, we curate three tours of traditional music that feature musicians of renown who have not worked together before. Over the years, some very special collaborations have taken place and very often tour line-ups curated by Music Network continue to work together beyond the life of the tour and produce recordings.
