Celebrating folk music collected by Ralph Vaughan Williams across East Anglia. Vaughan Williams’ Folk is a National Lottery Heritage Fund project run by EATMT from October 2022 – Autumn 2023. This project has been co-ordinated by Nicky Stockman, Freelance Music Educator, Heritage Project leader and musician and managed by Alex Bartholomew, part time EATMT Director/Administrator.
As we draw to an end of this project during the autumn of 2023, we are working on updating the pages within the EATMT website to reflect findings and work completed over this exciting year+ long project. We anticipate to have this completed by December 2023.

Jake Lee Savage adds to the EATMT’s Big Sky Traditions Podcasting platform with a series of Podcasts covering the various strands in the National Lottery Heritage Funded project.
In addition to Podcasts, Jake Lee Savage has also produced some great film footage of various events that ran as part of the Vaughan Williams’ Folk project. The above link takes you to the 14 films officially made to document the project’s progress. There are also additional films – made by Jake and others that have links within the Resources section of these project pages.
More than 2500 school pupils and adult community choirs across East Anglia were involved in this strand of the project being taught different songs and tunes by some wonderful, musical educators. Find out more about who and where this project reached. There are several individual films that were made in this section of the work as well as a final Schools and Community Film that you can access from these pages.
