Help Tom Robinson pick the Ultimate Folk Playlist for Now Playing @6Music

In June 2013 the English Folk Dance and Song Society (EFDSS) launched a huge online digital archive of England’s major manuscript collections from seven major archives, including those of Frank Sidgwick, Cecil Sharp, Ralph Vaughan Williams and many others, made largely possible with a £585,400 grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
