On Thursday 2 October we welcome Andrew Cronshaw & SANS to Cecil Sharp House. Having released their first album as a collective, SANS Live, in April this year, this unique ensemble draws inspiration from musical traditions found across the globe.
Folk musician Emily Askew will share her knowledge of early music at a conference in Hungary in October that celebrates English culture.
One of the most exciting things about the folk scene is the idea of community that permeates at every level, from its central role in the life cycle of folksongs to the manner and context in which they are performed. As such, it is always exciting when a new ensemble comes along, with every musician providing their own unique sound and style.
Next week we put the final stitch in the Yan Tan Tethera season of performances, events and workshops - curated by David Littler - with Spin-Cycle: a sonic journey into the world of spin.
