company description

Apollo Music Services provides a retail and press/publicity service for distributors

and record labels and general consultancy for the

Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.



At Womex 2003 we're seeking worldwide distribution

for Irelands foremost

traditional music label Claddagh Records.



Claddagh Records was founded in Dublin in 1959 by Garech Browne.

The first album it produced was the classic Rí na bPíobairí (King of the Pipers) by Leo Rowsome. The second Claddagh album was The Chieftains, the very

first recording of the now world-famous traditional group. Claddagh went

on to make many more fine albums of the Chieftains. During the next

number of years Claddagh Records published many of the best traditional

artists of the time. It was a revolutionary label also in the sense that it set

out to present the leading literary figures in Ireland. Poets such as Patrick

Kavanagh, Austin Clarke, John Montague and Seamus Heaney have made

records for Claddagh, and the label has also recorded major Scottish

poets such as Hugh Mac Diarmid, Sorley MacLean and George MacKay

Browne.



Today, Claddagh continues to release the best traditional music in Ireland.

Among the musicians who have recorded on Claddagh recently are Peter

O’Loughlin and Ronan Browne on fiddle and pipes, Harry Bradley on flute

and Brian Rooney on fiddle. The work continues and the company hopes to

make many more timeless and enduring recordings.
