A New Site for Veteran Records

VeteranReceived from Veteran Records...

We have a new website:

Our new site: specialises in Irish music and songs on CDs and DVDs. This has enabled us to include hundreds more albums, and there are even more being added over the coming months. This new site is also organised differently with pages on Fiddle, Uilleann Pipes, Flute, Tin Whistle, Button Accordion, Melodeon, Concertina, Mouthorgan, Banjo, Harp, Bodhran, Ceili Bands, Duos, Groups, Songs sung in English, Songs sung in Irish, Storytellers and Compilations.
Our original website: continues and will still be the place to find English and Scottish material not only on the Veteran label but also from similar, often hard to find esoteric labels. We also continue to list full catalogues from other major labels such as Topic, Fellside, WildGoose and Fledg’ling.

Digital Downloads

Next is the news that the whole of Veteran label catalogue of CDs is now available to download from all major download retailers including:  iTunes,, napster, emusic, and

Also in the coming year we will now be able to re-release some of our older albums (from the days of cassettes) as digital-only releases. The first to appear will be:

New CD

Although digital downloads are becoming more and more popular we are still continuing to produce CD releases and our newest is from two of Ireland’s greatest traditional singers: John and Tim Lyons. VT158CD  Easy & Bold! is now available.
