May Day Morris

Morris On

Well done to all our Morris dancing readers in the UK who made the effort to welcome in the spring on May Day. Whether you were dancing astride the Cerne Abbas Giant in Dorset or celebrating outside Magdalen College Tower in Oxford, having heard the May Morning chorus, we at Tweed Towers appreciate the spectacle you bring and the ancient fertility rites you help to keep alive. Although we didn't quite manage to be up at dawn ourselves, to be quite honest.

Cerne Abbas Action

May Morning in Oxford 

The Hurly Burly Whirly Earl-i in the Morning Band were out playing again as part of the Oxford celebration. Their rabble-rousing folk-medieval sound would put even the sleepiest druid in a party mood.

Tweedy's Thought: Maybe we should organise a 'talk' on Morris dancing for the pages of The Tweed Pig. Are you an authority on Morris dancing? Would you like to explain some of the history and dances to our curious readers in a small series of lectures? if so, please get in touch.
