Thread Name: Culture doesn't include Trad Music
Subject: RE: Culture doesn't include Trad Music

Arts and Culture til 'discovering' it late last year... And yet, it's overdue that time reparations to such collective ignorance were made. And specifically within those bodies who are in control over funding for community and national educational arts projects!
I Googled for "Folk Arts Museum" earlier, and filtered it to sites *exclusively from the U.K.*, this is what I got (read it and weep):
Googling within UK, for 'Folk Arts museum'
