The TMF is a network of around 80 music organisations supporting Scotland’s vibrant traditional music community. We include clubs, festivals, community music projects, academic institutions, promoters, agents, publishers and labels among our members; representing a broad sweep of diverse activity and thousands of musicians, enthusiasts, activists, participants and listeners across Scotland.
The Traditional Music Forum, supported by Creative Scotland, aims to be:
Visible – and available, a first point of contact;
Vocal – a credible and authoritative advocate for traditional music;
Valuable – an effective representative of traditional music organisations in Scotland.
The Forum aims to advocate the place for traditional music at the heart of Scottish life and to promote the widest possible access to it. It is a key resource for information and advice on traditional music for Creative Scotland and other public bodies.
