Music and musicians

It's very hard to dance without music, and Morris is no exception. Music is a very important part of Morris dancing, and every side has at least one, or in some cases a large number of, musicians.

We will be telling you more about our music and musicians in due course, but for now we have some files available to download. These contain our repertoire of tunes, as we play them (every side has its own quirks as to how even the most well-known tunes are played!).
