This summer we’re celebrating the first year of the National Youth Folk Ensemble. The Ensemble celebrates excellence in youth folk music, bringing together talented young folk musicians from across England to create and perform inspiring new arrangements of folk music, and to work with leading folk artists.
Seven projects will create new music rooted in the English folk tradition following the latest round of funding awards by England’s national development agency for the folk arts.
The English Folk Dance and Song Society (EFDSS) has made four awards under its 2017 Creative Bursary scheme and three through its Creative Seed Funding programme.
We are pleased to announce a series of Vaughan Williams Memorial Library Lectures to be given at Chetham’s Library, in Manchester.
Saturday 10 March 2018 will see folk dance practitioners gather together at Cecil Sharp House in London, taking a step back to consider and explore the world of English Social Folk Dance.
We are delighted to announce Emily Askew as Leader of the London Youth Folk Ensemble 2017/18, joined by Ruairi Glasheen.
