Thread Name: Who is/ are the EFDSS?
Subject: RE: efdss,what does it mean
thankyou ,Derek for your time.
clause c and d ,indicate that one of their aims is to promote songs and music of other countries.
I am not suggesting that efdss make this their primary aim,but it does have potential to be developed,and has the potential for bringing in new members from immigrant cultures.,IF EFDSS MEMBERS want this.
Ruth why do you want to keep comparing efdss and comhaltas[its rather like saying they dont do it, why should we],a good business man sees and seizes oppurtunitesthat others [in this case comhaltas havent].
COMHALTAS is irrelevant to this discussion,I have always understood that their brief is strictly the preservation of irish traditional music.,please correct me if I am wrong.
It would appear efdss is more international.
I have no intention of joining efdss at the moment, however a donation of 200 sterling is still on offer,either for a traditional unaccompanied singing competition or a songwriting competition,I feel that my money is better spent in this way[ thats my prerogative ].
