English Dance and Song Winter 2019

As the oldest folk music and dance magazine in the world, EDS has a rich history of bringing our members news and features from the folk community, and this winter we have some great stories to share with you.

Peter Ingram recounts the intriguing tale of John Lock’s fiddle; we hear about 75 years of dancing in Titchmarsh, and Sheila Miller tells us about the history of the Cellar folk club. We meet Luke Daniels, who tells us about his folk family tree, and the Instep Research Team share their research on miner and clog dancer, John Frith.

Plus, we’ve got lots to tell you about some of EFDSS’ activities, including a round-up of Dance Development activities.

There are also regular features including reviews, dance events, festival focus, lives remembered and much more.
