The English Acoustic Collective (EAC) is recognised as one of the most innovative ensembles working in the field of folk music and are at the vanguard of England's new acoustic movement.
The EAC is a fluid group of composers, writers and choreographers whose work is grounded in a love for their common cultural inheritance.
Their work seeks to articulate and amplify the case for authentic and meaningful indigenous forms of cultural expression. It also investigates the creative 'wet edge' between the traditional and the contemporary.
The people of England have been unravelling the universe through their songs, stories, poetry, jokes and dances for millennia and it is this vibrant body of work which becomes the freely given treasure trove for the next generation. The simple lesson we have learnt from our ancestors is to tell nothing more or less than our own story and that the gold we are all searching for is in our own backyard.
