It makes me wonder who would be the market/audience for such productions in Britain c1956/7 as I always thought the revival in Britain didn't take off until the early 60s. There were no folk clubs, or festivals of the sort we know today. There were EFDSS festivals but these were mainly dance and very much a middle class affair.
