The English Folk Dance and Song Society has announced three ambitious new ‘Perspectives on Tradition’ cross-cultural creative residencies at Cecil Sharp House, London’s home of English Folk. Each of the residencies will look at notions of culture, tradition, collecting, cross-pollination and fragmentation of music, working with Ian Carter and Nicola Kearey (Stick In The Wheel, From Here Records).
