Welcome

 

The East Anglian Traditional Music Trust is a registered charity based in Suffolk, which aims to promote awareness of and participation in the folk music traditions of East Anglia.

 

East Anglia has a rich seam of such music, and has provided inspiration for composers such as Ralph Vaughan Williams, and been the subject of many recordings, books and articles.

 

On this website you will find news about our current projects, and how to get involved, including workshops and evening classes, community projects, research and publications. You will also find further information about our past projects, links to other sites of related interest and an online shop featuring the widest range of recordings and books about East Anglian traditional music and song anywhere in the world!

 

Contact us at: info@eatmt.fsnet.co.uk or ring 01449 771090.

 

Our office is on the same site as the Museum of East Anglian Life in the centre of Suffolk.

Write to us at: EATMT, The Old Stables, Museum of East Anglian Life, Stowmarket, Suffolk IP14 1DL.

 

 

Do you like what we do?
Now would be a really good time to show your support and join the Friends of EATMT.

 

We’d like to encourage everyone who appreciates the work we do - whether it be this website, the events, the research and publications, the schools and community projects, the exhibitions, the workshops and classes ... to join the Friends of EATMT and support our work into the future.


If you sing or listen to a local song, play or hear a local tune, dance or watch or stepdancing, at least part of that is probably down to the work of EATMT, which has been working to keep our local traditions alive and kicking into the twenty first century. If you receive a printed copy or an email version of this newsletter, it’s down to the hard work of our part-time staff and volunteers - and the same goes if you are reading this on the website now!


We are a small organisation but with a serious reputation for delivering professional projects and “punching above our weight”. We became a registered charity in 2000 and are governed by a board of trustees. Membership starts at £15 per year. Donations are always very welcome, a Gift Aid declaration helps it go even further, and we also welcome longer-term enquiries about legacies etc.

Please visit our membership page to download a form. Thank you.
