Subject: RE: EFDSS Role in the 21st Century
How much money do efdss receieve from the sports fund
Iwould be prepared to donate money to efdss,if they had a seperate aimed song project , with an explanation how the money was intended to be used.thats whatI would like them to do Dave.not unreasonable.
To Folkie Dave,Yes comhaltas lists 65 fleadhs and summer schools on their website, comhaltas were formed in 1951, efdss were formed in 1932. the population of Ireland is 4 million the population of england is 55 million ,Considering the handicap of population, no comparison. now Iam not asking of efdss very much. but perhaps a summer school once a week at cecil sharp house, listening to traditional players, Oscar woods , stephen baldwin ,, walter bulwer, billy bennington ,william kimber, jinky wells. scantester.onthe song side Harry cox,joseph taylor,sam larner,fred jordan,bob and ron copper,phil tanner jeannie robertson,even bulgarian throat singers, as well as paddy tunney sarah makem ,as the song side is international.
