How to work with us

Participation in the Music Network Touring Programme is by invitation only. Currently the Music Network touring schedule is full throughout the next 3 – 4 seasons so there are no tour slots available for 18 – 24 months. Should you wish to be considered for a Music Network tour beyond that time please send an information pack including up-to-date biographies, reviews, sound/video recordings, recent professional ensemble photographs of high quality, fee expectation, and programmes/performance ideas to The Programmes Manager, Music Network, National Concert Hall, Earlsfort Terrace, Dublin 2, Ireland, or email here.

Curated tours

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, some recent examples include:


Since 2000, Music Network has arranged numerous overseas performances by Irish Traditional, Classical and Jazz musicians, with support from (among others) the Cultural Relations Committee, Department of Arts, Sport and Tourism and more recently, Culture Ireland. Opportunities we have realised on behalf of Irish musicians can be viewed here.
