|Welcome to the latest news from the East Anglian Traditional Music Trust. We’ve been working away over the winter months to put together an exciting programme of events for you in 2019. The have been developed with the support and input of a number of key people from within the region’s traditional music scene. We’d like to thank everyone who has contributed to the events so far.
On that note, we’d also like to welcome Eammon Andrews to our board of Trustees. Eammon brings with him a weath of epxerience – and we will ask him to share with you more about his love for East Anglian music in a coming newsletter. Welcome Eammon!
Our events will see us expand our delivery across East Anglia, with events taking us from the Yare Valley to the North Norfolk Coast and then back home to Mid-Suffolk too.
We may be adding to our programme as the year develops, so please expect to see new opportunities to attend events, learn ( more on classes below), sing and play right across the region as we go along!
