The East Anglian Traditional Music Trust is excited to announce the guest list for the fifteenth Traditional Music Day at the Museum of East Anglian Life on Saturday 3rd September 2016.
Headline guest this year is the wonderful Nancy Kerr, one of the most celebrated folk musicians of her generation, who was voted the BBC Radio 2 Folk Singer of the Year 2015 amongst many other accolades for her sparkling musicianship and impassioned performances.
She is supported by equally compelling singers Roisin White, Peta Webb and Ken Hall. On the musical side, the ever-popular Dartmoor Boys travel east for a welcome return and the English Dulcimer Duo featuring Sue Harris make a rare appearance. There’s also fine Irish music from Michael Sheehy.
These guests are just one aspect of this very distinctive and characterful event which features many local stepdancers, traditional musicians and singers, as well as a backline of regular visitors who frequently grace the stages of other festivals.
There is plenty for all the family to get involved in: trying out instruments, joining in the singing and dancing, listening to stories and songs and viewing this year’s special exhibition of dulcimers, including locally made instruments from the nineteenth century.
For the concerts a Traditional Music Day ticket is needed, which can be bought in advance only from the East Anglian Traditional Music Trust.
