Cracken Morris is a mixed side that performs Morris dances from the Cotswold tradition, particularly from the villages of Leafield (Fieldtown) and Bledington. We like to dance with style, energy, and a sense of fun, building our own elements of originality on a solid foundation of the distinctive character of each village tradition
We formed in March 2017 as a group of friends, mostly in their 20’s and 30’s with experience in dance and music in both Cotswold and Border Morris, based in and around the High Peak. We called ourselves “Cracken Morris” mostly because we liked the sound of it, but also Cracken Edge is a geographical feature overlooking where we practice.
We practice at the Chinley Women’s Institute Hall from 8 to 9:30 pm on most Mondays.
Interested in joining? If so, we’d like to hear from you. Please get in touch, or even come and find us in the pub. Previous experience of morris dancing or music is not necessary, but you will certainly have to be fit and active and aspire to be someone that an experienced dancer would (at least) describe as being “not bad”.
We might just be able to do a little gig for your too. We’d probably need an invite though!
