TOPIC RECORDS CELEBRATES ITS 80th ANNIVERSARY IN 2019 AS THE OLDEST INDEPENDENT RECORD LABEL IN THE WORLD

With its origins in the Workers’ Music Association, through the mid-20th century folk revival to the present day, Topic Records has established itself as not only the pre-eminent British folk music label but one widely respected throughout the world.

During the past 80 years, Topic Records has built a deserved reputation for not compromising the nature of its work or that of the independent spirit of the artists it represents. Irrespective of fads or fashions, Topic has not simply survived, but it has grown and flourished too – proof, if any were needed, that “grass roots” interest in traditional music, the artists and the label itself, has remained constant and strong. Topic has released some of the most influential folk recordings of modern times by a host of revered artists, from Anne Briggs to Peggy Seeger to June Tabor to Ewan MacColl and many, many more.

 Topic is a winner of BBC Radio’s “Good Tradition” Award
for the preservation and promotion of traditional and roots music.
