As the project is based in the Music Department of the University of Sheffield, and the lead researcher is an ethnomusicologist, you could be forgiven for assuming that this project is only about music. However, the majority of folk arts are combined in events, particularly music and dance and song, and often with poetry, storytelling and dramatic performances. The research team also includes an ethnochoreologist and a specialist in crafts and digital media, so together we’re interested in all forms of folk art, not just music.
