Local Acts, Global Success
Local Acts, Global Success critically examines both the history of Ireland’s popular music industry as well as the current music scene in the country. By placing recent industry developments in the context of that history, the authors present a new way of examining any nation state’s music industry - to understand the industry, the local scene must be examined. This approach highlights the multiple and changing ways by which the local scene prepares artists for both domestic and international success. In Ireland’s case the scene, with its supportive network of friends, families and fans, has developed the artists who then sign with the major transnational music firms.
This book is of interest to business students as well as popular music scholars in addition to non-academic readers.
