There is a wealth of information on the traditional music of East Anglia. The most recent articles appear here in date/season order and as they are updated they go on to form part of the forthcoming Newsletter which is sent out 3-4 times per year. As time moves on, these articles will be transferred to the Archives – Past Articles section.

If you would like to contribute to an article or indeed to information on any area within the website, we would be delighted to hear from you.
