Front cover of the latest issue is GREAT!
It's what you'll see at any English Ceilidh. People having fun. It gives the feel of the high quality ceilidh band that was probably playing. The ones with bounce. And there are lots of them about these days. Eds did a review a few issues ago on the English ceilidh's scene that is influencing the youth today. Just postive all round. Lets hope the same youth get into some folk clubs and give them the boost that they need.
EDS had a great photo of "Pig Dyke Molly" on the front not so long ago too.
Eds is doing fine. It covers such a lot. Cd's Books, song searches. etc. Although I feel that four times a year is enough.
What I dont really get though (Although as a member I do)is the yearly Folk Music Journal. It's very in depth articals, and the lot has gone in to it, but I must admit that it's a bit over my head.
Might be that I'm not a professional person i.e. teacher, music scholar etc.
And as I'm bitching a bit. A few quid on some new chairs in their cellar folk club wouldn't go amiss.
