Dara Records was founded by Maggie Cadden as a record distribution business in 1980. We now feature the largest selection of Celtic Music offered by any mailorder record distributor.
At the same time Dara Records was started, Maggie became involved in concert promotion. She has produced concerts for the biggest names in Irish music including Phil Coulter, The Fureys, De Dannan, Mary Black, Dolores Keane, Maura O'Connell, Finbar Wright, Makem & Clancy among others. She is currently the American promoter for Phil Coulter, The Fureys, Finbar Wright and Dolores Keane. This involvement in the promotion aspect of the business keeps Dara informed of what is the best and new in Celtic music. To help bring this information to you, we publish the Irish Music News.
This combination of knowledge and practical experience has been put to work in our music distribution business.
