English Dance & Song Magazine
English Dance & Song is the longest-established magazine devoted to folk music, dance and song in the country. First published in 1936, it has appeared at least four times a year ever since.
English Dance & Song exists to interest, inform and stimulate the membership of the EFDSS, as well as the wider folk music and dance community.
English Dance & Song aims to publish contributions of the highest quality.
The range of interests include traditional song, traditional dance (social, display, ceremonial), traditional music, custom and children's games. The geographical spread is not confined to England, but may also include Scotland, Wales and Ireland; as well as the USA, and other areas of the world which may be appropriate.
Potential contributors are asked to read the Contributor's Style Sheet (see bottom of page).
Items for review should be sent to the Editor. Unsolicited reviews will not be published.
