Beyond the Marches / Dros y Ffin

Revisiting the national folk archives of Wales & England

In Summer 2015 EFDSS partnered with Welsh arts organisation trac for a new commission for which six artists from England and Wales created new work from their respective national archives.



  • Aberystwyth Arts Centre
  • Cardiff Millennium Centre
  • London Cecil Sharp House

These performances featuring some of the finest young contemporary folk musicians on the scene explored and celebrated the shared history and culture of our two nations.

Beyond the Marches / Dros y Ffin is joint commission by trac and EFDSS, supported by the PRS Foundation.
