This section is dedicated to people having their say. Find out about the ideas, interests and projects of a variety of people in the world of folk.


People from across the folk scene, be they singers, dancers, folklorists or arts professionals, present their thoughts and ideas about a variety of matters concerning the folk arts.


Here we chat with artists who are presenting their work at Cecil Sharp House – music, visual art, film or anything else.


When we partner with an artist to embark on a specific project, this is where they record their adventures. Such projects may include residencies, exhibitions, international exchanges and more.
