Think Morris Dance think bells on ankles, beery old blokes with beards and one dude with an accordian? Think again. Morris Offspring – literally, the offspring of 1970s folk fans – yank the traditional steps, figures and music of the Morris into contemporary England, continuing the evolution of ritual folk dance for the 21st century.
There will be an accordianist, but she’s Becky Price and doesn’t have a beard. She will be joined by singers, a fiddler and clarinetist, and storyteller, Debs Newbold. All that should add up to:’An exuberant spectacle of vitality and passionate dance wrapped in a cloak of beautiful music, stunning singing and heart-stopping stories.’
