the hub explores talent development with English Folk, Dance & Song Society

Over the summer, the hub will be working with EFDSS to explore how best the organisation can support the development of new work and emerging talent in the folk music sector.

EFDSS aims to ?nourish artistic innovation and excellence and develop the reach of English folk and new acoustic music in the UK and its profile internationally?, and we?ll be looking in particular at how it can support artists to build and connect with new live audiences. Get in touch if you?d like to find out more, or tell us what you think.

In the meantime, check out Folk Rising, a three-part concert series sampling the freshest, undiscovered and at times radical UK folk music, produced by EFDSS and the most excellent The Magpie’s Nest. The future sound of folk…today.
