SEADOG visit to A Summer Solstice Celebration with Shovel Dance Collective 2023.

The English Folk Dance and Song Society was founded in 1932 to promote and develop the English folk arts, specifically song and dance. On June 18th the society's home, Cecil Sharp House, hosted Shovel Dance Collective with London Sacred Harp and Dawn Terry for an evening to celebrate the coming summer solstice. 

Shovel Dance have an experimental approach to the 
folk music of the British Isles and Ireland which can be heard on the playlist we have put together following our trip. If you're interested in seeing Shovel Dance play you can see their upcoming tour dates here
