From The Telegraph:
Folk music fans will get free access to more than 58,000 items under an innovative project to create the world’s biggest digital archive of English traditional music and dance tunes.
‘The Full English’ will bring together 11 major collections for the first time when it launches online in June. It will be the most comprehensive searchable database of English folk songs, tunes, dances and customs in the world.
The Full English project, from English Folk Dance and Song Society (EFDSS), has been supported by the National Lottery through a £585,400 grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. It has also been supported by the National Folk Music Fund and The Folklore Society.
