Moulton Festival - "Princess Royal Jig"

Morris jigs are showey-offy dances performed to demonstrate all the dance steps in a tradition.

They can be danced by a solo dance but more often by two men, sometimes a few more! 

 

 

Kingsthorpe Fete 2013 - "Knuckles"

This is a Moulton village dance, named for its tendency to remove parts of the anatomy

 

Thaxted tour 2010 - "Two by Two"

This dance is the Bampton version of "Shepherds Hey"

We use an unusual tune , possibly a variant of "Trunkles" , which Simon picked up as a youngster,  from Bapton fiddler Arnold Woodley

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.

Moulton Mummers Play - performance at Covent Garden, London

Moulton Morris were performing at Covent Garden Market in April 2008, for the St Georges Day celebrations.
