Ruth Archer Promising UK folk happening (14) RE: Promising UK folk happening 21 Nov 10


Thanks, Gervase and JM for the kind words.

To clarify, I don't think Albion wants to be all things to all people. But between us, we do have extensive experience and solid track records in the various services we're offering. If an organisation needs someone with experience in any of those areas to deliver a particular piece of work, we can either offer our own services, or if we are unable to deliver what they need, put them into contact with someone who can help. We will work with a team of associates who can provide all kinds of expertise, so that Albion isn't so much "the single 'go to' resource for folk arts in England", but more of a hub.

We are particularly interested in creating networks and opportunities for people to share resources and collaborate. We're currently exploring how that might work on a regional basis.

As several people have noted, there is also an agency side to the business. The agency is run exclusively by Nick Hallam, and the board of the festival I work for is aware of and happy with the arrangements we've put in place (just to address the concern about conflicts of interest).

We were overwhelmed by the warm reception from everyone at AFO conference this weekend - thanks to those we met for their kindness and support, and we look forward to working with you in future!
