Subject: RE: Top International Award for EFDSS
I guess the reality of the UK folkie world is that folk clubs sprang up from the 60s on without much connection with the EFDSS. It did front a 'Federation' and a handbook for a while in the 70s but clubs have come and gone so fast it was hard to keep up.

Ceilidhs / Barn Dances / Dance Clubs have hung on within the EFDSS circle bit much more importantly Ceilidhs of one sort or another pop up all over the place - Folk Clubs, school PTAs, Fund raisers of all kinds and I suspect that they are how most none folkies bump into and clearly enjoy our folk heritage.

How can EFDSS help? Dunno
