Thread Name: New Book: Folk Song in England
Subject: RE: New Book: Folk Song in England
Publishing folk material in Ireland is just as problematical in a way but as the Traditional arts is quite well represented on the Arts circuit it is still possible to get grants for research and publishing, though not as easy as before the bankers naused up the economy
We were helped enormously by two very generous grants from the Arts Council of Ireland in the transcribing of texts and music fo out Traveller collection.
If we ever get round to producing a book the main work has been done and Limerick Uni will possibly be interested
Clare County Library's taking up our Clare Collection was a dream realised - this is what we were hoping to acheive in the U.K. when we had given up hope on E.F.D.S.S.
I hope things haven't deteriorated so far there for than not to be a possibility.

I hope you enjoy The Italian Comedy and much as I did - (that's not a bad price for a book of that quality and importance)
If you haven't already, you might try 'The Commedia Dell' Arte by Giacomo Oregalis (Methuen University Paperback 196)
It concentrated more on the scenarios of the plays rather than its history - I found the two complimented each other perfectly
