Conference background

The conference on Pedagogies, Practices and the Future of Folk Music in Higher Education, is a platform for developing the growing field of folk music in higher music education.

The first conference took place at The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow in 2018. After yet another conference at the Sibelius Academy, Helsinki it is now the Royal College of Music's turn to arrange the third conference on this topic.

We invite participants from across the field to contribute with artistic, scientific and pedagogic research and knowledge, to share it amongst peers.
