The Living Tradition is no more

The Living Tradition on McCurtain Street recently closed its doors for the last time.  This is an awful loss for traditional music enthusiasts in Cork as it had a great collection of tradition music CDs, books and even some instruments.  The shop had moved from another premises on the same street in recent years but obviously they couldn’t sustain the shop on an ongoing basis.  I’ll miss the place.  I think I was one of the last to make a purchase there late on a Saturday evening, buying the excellent album by Cork band Fred Can’t Stop I’m Being Timed.
