A big thank you to the East Suffolk Morris Men and to Mike Garland who came to show us some demonstration dances which Mike followed with a talk on the history of Morris. You always learn something on evenings like this and it was great to hear about the traditions of performing in the street and passing the hat. Many of us we also relieved to hear about the tradition of Morris being an entertainment rather than a participation as we’d never be able to perform the complex dances we were shown. Thanks again gentlemen!
Thanks also to the Moon & Mushroom who hosted us so well.
Here’s a snippet of one of the dances:
