This year will be the 14th year that the East Anglian Traditional Music Trust organises the Traditional Music Day, which takes place at the Museum of East Anglian Life in Stowmarket on Saturday 5th September, featuring some of the best traditional singers and musicians from across the British Isles.
This annual event, now in its fourteenth year, has a very special atmosphere, with events taking place in the informal settings of the ancient barns, farmhouses and outbuildings of the Museum of East Anglian Life, giving a close-up insight into the acoustic performances.
At Traditional Music Day you will come across an array of traditional musicians, singers and stepdancers alongside the main guests, many of whom who would normally be found on the guest list of other festivals.
This year features a Children’s Music Trail from 11am to 4.30pm, with around a dozen family-friendly activities including craft and music activities, dancing and storytelling. These are all free with a museum entrance ticket.
For the concerts a Traditional Music Day ticket is needed, which can be bought in advance only from the East Anglian Traditional Music Trust.
