This is the home of Gloucestershire Traditions, a group dedicated to supporting and promoting the folk traditions of the county. Gloucestershire Traditions has been responsible for the “Single Gloucester” project which over the last 2 years has delivered a world-class research website as well as introducing a large number of people to Gloucestershire’s cultural heritage.
OUR NEXT BIG EVENT AND THE CULMINATION OF THE PROJECT IS A ‘WEST COUNTRY TRADITIONAL MUSIC DAY’ OF WORKSHOPS, TALKS AND PERFORMANCES, TO BE HELD IN GLOUCESTER ON SUNDAY 30 OCTOBER. SEE HERE FOR DETAILS
Glos Christmas – This was our first project, to create a resource for Christmas folk traditions.
We now have an exciting site, www.glostrad.com , which ultimately will contain all available information on folk songs and tunes collected in Gloucestershire. Each song or tune is accompanied by abc and pdf files, plus audio in the form of midi or audio/video where available, as well as informative background notes on the material and performers.
