Sessions featuring local traditions

 

There are a number of regular sessions in Suffolk featuring local traditional music, singing and stepdancing, apart from the ones advertised. These tend to be small venues with not much space for spectators, but there's usually room to squeeze in one or two more musicians or singers! If you are interested, contact Alvar Smith.

 

 

 

 

 

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.
