"Since 1992 the Early Music Forum of Scotland has been bringing together players, singers, dancers, makers and listeners from all over Scotland. It runs and sponsors courses and playing days for its members, run by leading professionals.
EMFS members receive an annual membership list, with details of each member's interests, and lists of names classified by activities. This is a useful way of making contact with other people of similar interests. In addition, the membership secretary and other members of the committee are always delighted to help members make useful contacts.
EMFS members receive a regular newsletter with details of early music events in Scotland, participatory events elsewhere, regular reviews of early music CDs and occasional articles.
Each year EMFS organises a Museum Weekend, two days of continuous music-making by early music groups from all over Scotland. Most often held in the National Museum of Scotland, but also on occasion in the Burrell Collection in Glasgow, it gives the general public a chance to sample a wide variety of early music and gives the players a chance to meet fellow enthusiasts.
EMFS is also part of the network of Early Music Fora which covers the whole of the British Isles. Members of EMFS can participate in the activities of the other Fora and advertise in their Newsletters, normally at reduced rates. " See website for more information. (ed.)
