In October 2013, Wales welcomed WOMEX, the world’s biggest trade event for world/folk/roots and traditional music. This five-day event which includes a bustling Trade Fair, Showcase Festival, Conference, and Film programme, with around 60 concerts featuring 300 plus artists, some 650 companies from over 90 countries exhibiting in the trade fair, and more than 400 national and international journalists.
The evening concerts at Cardiff Bay are open to the public and the follow-on ‘Horizons’ tour will take some of the finest folk musicians from the UK, teamed up with spectacular acts from around the world, to venues all over Wales.
trac will be at the Trade Fair – come and see us at Stand 218. We’ll be an information point for the traditional music of Wales, on hand to answer questions from our visitors and promote our own local artists who are ready for the international market. Some of these, who took part in trac’s Expanding Horizons project, are featured here.
