May 2021 news - 29th Apr

Trad Arts Team news May 2021

We are all flexing our muscles and testing our wings as we look towards an easing of the hold on our lives.  Pam and Graham are already discussing with people the possibilities of getting back together in pubs and cafes.  At the same time we have made new friends around the country and around the world and they are now linked into our networks.  We are unlikely to see you face to face before September but in the meantime we will continue with our online events and look forward to seeing some of you there.

REMINDER: The English Folk Dance and Song Society will run eight online Folk Sampler Days for young musicians aged 12-18 between 29 May and 6 June.  These are free - to book a place go to the EFDSS website.  It's a great chance to learn from inspiring professional musicians, explore folk music and find out about the National Youth Folk Ensemble, so please pass this link on to any young musicians you know of.
