The Traditional Song Forum (TSF) is an informal co-operative organisation which exists to assist people interested in the subject by holding events and meetings up and down the country to get people together to share enthusiasms, support and information.

We will be holding a meeting in Ely on Saturday 11th May, with the theme for the afternoon session (1pm - 4pm) Folk Song in Eastern England, which will include contributions from local experts on the history of traditional song in Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, Lincolnshire, and elsewhere in the region. Anyone interested can come along. The event is free of charge - but seating is limited so you must book a ticket: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/traditional-song-forum-meeting-in-ely-cambs-tickets-59113717721

Good Lovelies @ Seagull Theatre

Award winning Canadian band to appear in Suffolk

You hear it a lot these days – the idea that something is greater than the sum of its parts – and yet there’s really no better way to describe the musical essence of Good Lovelies. Kerri Ough, Sue Passmore, and Caroline Brooks – immensely talented vocalists and songwriters in their own right; however, it’s their voices interwoven in harmony – powerful and pure, organic and inspiring – that elevates Good Lovelies from impressive to peerless.
