The Music Box Archive is a new archive of field recordings set up by Megan Wisdom and the East Anglian Traditional Music Trust. Comprised of recordings of singers from todayâ€™s East Anglian traditional music scene, it aims to build a picture of the folk music in the East as it is now; vibrant, eclectic and alive with traditional songs and tunes. The Music Box Archive intends to bring local musicians, whose contributions to the East Anglian folk scene have kept it alive for decades, to the fore.
