Print website has taken over from Mardles print magazine which ceased publication in January 2018. The aim of the website is to share information about folk music and dance in East Anglia and to support folk events in the area. This will include keeping an up-to-date website, maintaining regular contact with subscribers, and may in the future include organizing folk events as finances allow. We are a non-profit-making organization.

We take great care to ensure that the contents of all parts of the website are accurate. However, we accept no liability for any mistakes or misprints that appear. The views and opinions expressed in articles are those of the individual authors and do not reflect the opinions of the editor or any of the Mardles team.

We invite everyone with an interest in Folk Music and Dance to submit articles, reviews and event listings.  Please see Contact Us if you would like to contribute.

If you become a Subscriber, you will receive an occasional Mail Chimp newsletter drawing your attention to events, for example workshops in our area.
