Bromyard Festival - Bacca Pipes
The Bacca Pipes jig was a dance competition that used to be done as an amusement in pubs in Moulton and elsewhere.
The dancers try to outdo each other with complext steps over delicate clay pipes- he who breaks the pipes or
knocks off the coin placed on them loses the bet. This version is from Bampton in Oxfordshire.
Performed by Rob & Andy at Bromyard Folk festival.
