The year-end season is when traditional music can be especially appreciated, and it’s the perfect time to show support for the Traditional Tune Archive.
If you rely, enjoy, or otherwise use the TTA during the year, would you consider making a donation to help underwrite the archive at this time?
User donations are essential to keeping the TTA running commercial-free and technologically up-to-date.
We would like to thank those who have made contributions to the TTA (monetary and informational) and we look forward to engaging new members of the music community.

Valerio and Andrew.
