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.

Over the last 50 years we have learnt a lot about the music that fuels Morris. We have almost certainly developed own quirks in playing even the most well-known tunes!  So at our 50th we decided to write it all down including our accumulated wisdom in the art of playing for, and performing the Morris.
