Abstract / Description of output
In this article we examine the usefulness of Knowledge Exchange funding streams for higher education community music research projects. We do this through the case study of one particular project, which was funded by a small University of Edinburgh CHSS Knowledge Exchange (KE) grant to strengthen the University’s existing community music links. Our case study project took place with the well-established Edinburgh charity, Scots Music Group (SMG), who use traditional music, song and dance to bring people together. We examine the study’s findings against the outcomes desired by the various partners in the project, in order to consider the particular value and utility of knowledge exchange funding streams for community music research.
