Accessing Folk Singing in England

Participatory Research in Music

A mock-up of the report on Participatory Research in Music by the Access Folk team

The Access Folk Podcast

Folk singers and musicians Joanie Bones and Oliver Cross discuss some of the themes that emerged from the Access Folk research project about participation and inclusion in folk singing in England. Drawing on findings from the research report Accessing Folk Singing in England they interview singers, musicians and educators as well as drawing on their own lived experience to discuss issues around disability, gender, ethnicity and much more.

First Steps in Participatory Research

An important part of our work is to support researchers in developing good relationships with community partners and encourage them to use participatory methods in their research. To this end, our research associates Esbjörn Wettermark and Kirsty Kay have produced a new guide to Participatory Research aimed at Postgraduate and Early Career Researchers, as well as a video giving 10 top tips!
