Richard and I both enjoy folk music. We grew up singing folk songs at school and then we met when we were members of a choir that often included folk songs in it’s programmes. We also love watching folk dance, especially Morris dancing. I published a post last year about Halesworth’s Day of Dance which you can see here. This year we turned up to watch but were unable to get a programme so I can’t tell you the names of most of the groups we saw. Richard made a few short videos of most of the groups and I have included some of these in this post. The weather was better than last year – it was bright and mild and everyone appeared to be enjoying themselves.
There was a trio of Mummers – Mad Moll and her husband Old Tom who had a visitation from the Devil.
The last group I have included is another one of the few I know the name of.
I hope you have enjoyed our Day of Dance.
Thanks for visiting!
