Exploring Musical Resemblance, 10 and 11 October 2020
Organised by the Vaughan Williams Memorial Library at the English Folk Dance and Song Society.
The third Traditional Tunes and Popular Airs conference will run as an online event, using Zoom.
The sessions will take place from 15.00 (BST) to 17.30 (BST) on each day: Saturday 10 October and Sunday 11 October, with evening music and socialising on Saturday.
The conference aims to bring together researchers working on ‘traditional’ and ‘popular’ tunes as transmitted and transformed in all manner of musical styles and genres, performance contexts, levels of society, historical periods, and geographical locations.
We have a fantastic line up of presentations, highlighting the chameleonic lives of traditional and popular tunes, as they are sung, played, arranged, transformed and written down, in different times, places and circumstances.
All the presentations will be pre-recorded. Conference bookers will be able to access them online from 1 October.
The live conference event on 10 and 11 October will focus on Q&A with the speakers. Attendees should acquaint themselves with the presentations before the live event as speakers will only sum up their papers in a few sentences on the day before the Q&A begins. This should allow plenty of time for discussion.
