A new ten-part series of RTÉ podcasts explores the role of Ireland's independent record labels in a much-changed musical landscape.
Across ten episodes, Independents Day features an in-depth look at Irish independent record labels with interviews with the originators of these labels. It focuses on their original concept for the label, as well as their desire to promote the music they love, with genres from indie, folk, hip hop, sound art, jazz, traditional and electronic.
Episode 4: Raelach Records is an artist-run, traditional and folk record label based in county Clare, on the west coast of Ireland. The label was founded in 2011 by musician and producer Jack Talty.
