Episode 007 – 21st April 2021
Our April theme is #TradStandsWithHer
This week Pinky and Lucy chat with the tremendous Ella-Joy Hunton. Ella is singer songwriter, folk degree student and is the founder of Folky Union of Women.
In the summer of 2020, Ella wrote a blog post called ‘Why I Lost Faith In Folk Music’, where she detailed personal experiences of abuses of power and predatory behaviour within the folk scene. The blog was widely read, shared and discussed amongst folk fans and members of the industry alike, galvanising people into having serious conversations about how we can do more to make our scene safe and empowering for young people.
Here, Ella shares her own visions for building an awesome, inclusive folk scene.
