Folk lovers at your fingertips
The English Folk Dance and Song Society (EFDSS) can help you speak directly to your target audience. In print, online and through live events, we’ve been inspiring a love of folk for generations. We’re in a unique position, as the national folk arts organisation, to offer unparalleled reach and influence with those involved in the folk arts, from musicians and choreographers to festival organisers and schools.
Our widely read, and highly respected, print publications include:
English Dance & Song magazine (EDS) is an international publication, going out to the almost 4,000 members of the Society. It’s the world’s longest-running folk magazine, first published in 1936, and balances professional folk with grassroots folk, both traditional and contemporary.
The Folk Music Journal is published every December, reaching an international audience of 4,000. It is devoted to folk music, dance and song, with a focus on popular culture, and includes the latest studies and insights on the folk arts. It is available for purchase to non-members at the Vaughan Williams Memorial Library, Cecil Sharp House, and via the EFDSS online shop.
