There are some really inspirational projects, events and people involved in the world of folk dance, music and song, and we’re lucky to feature some of those in this edition of EDS.
Our regular Folk in our Pub article features the long-running Bothy Folk Club, which is still proving to inspire guest performers and regulars, more than half a century on from when it started.
Sandra Kerr has written a rousing article about some of the inspiring songs of suffrage. Meanwhile, you can read about how Alex Fisher is encouraging young clog dancers in Lancashire and beyond with her ClogNet project.
Plus, we’ve got lots to tell you about some of EFDSS’ activities and anniversaries: our Education Director Rachel Elliott looks back at a decade at the helm of our Education team; you can find out about our fascinating Musicians in Museums project, upcoming conferences.
There are also regular features including reviews, dance events, festival focus, lives remembered and much more.
