News from East Anglian Traditional Music Trust HQ
TRADITIONAL MUSIC DAY will be taking place in Bungay, Suffolk on 15th September 2018. We are really excited that the new version of TMD is going ahead with a view to it taking place in a different county each year. There will be plenty of concerts, workshops, sessions and much more to keep you inspired and entertained. We will be taking over the whole Fisher Theatre and St Mary's Church (of Black Shuck fame) with more venues to be announced. Make sure you put the date in your diary now for this very exciting day of music, song and dance.
Folk Choir Workshops starting on February 19th 2018 These sessions will be led by a very inspiring professional singer who specialises in traditional and early songs. The workshops will lead towards a performance at the Traditional Music Day in September, being part of the performance is not compulsory if you would like to take part in the workshops without the pressure of performing. Booking Details will be available in January.
Melodeons & More There have been several enquiries about the Melodeons & More Day for 2018. A decision was taken by Katie and the Trustees not to book one for 2018 as they had not appointed a new Director. I am sorry if this is disappointing news for some of you, but rest assured there are some really exciting projects in the pipeline.
Sound Survey Collecting Project This is a major new project we are working on, details of which will be announced early 2018, including how to submit your own recordings. We will also be launching our very own EATMT Record Label in 2018.
