The English Folk Dance and Song Society (EFDSS) is a founding partner of the English Folk Expo (EFEx), the most important showcase event to sell English folk music to a national and international delegation of buyers.
The event is funded by Arts Council England with support from EFDSS and Home.
EFEx 2017 took place in October in central Manchester. The event offered opportunities to see live performances by showcasing artists. Delegates from the UK and abroad saw a host of established and up-and-coming, professional, export-ready artists, performing at Manchester Folk Festival and at private showcases and receptions exclusive to English Folk Expo delegates.
