... is a really odd variation of a horse-shoe kind of game. Well I should say that horse-shoes is an odd variant of Aunt Sally. Paul says, ”This talks about Aunt Sally, but more importantly, it shows Adderbury Morris Men playing it.”
Minneapolis's own ladies Morris side. A growing team of strong dancers! And a helluva lot better looking than we are...
While not definitive this site is an amazingly rich synopsis of things Morris folks celebrate.
Lotsa cool folksy kind of stuff for the consummate folk dancer, singer, and the occasional lost liberal.
The official website of the Renaissance Festival at which MTM is something of a fixture albeit an old and rusty one. Advertisement aimed at the patron.
The Midwest Morris person’s equivalent to a hajj except without the goat and with ale. OK! it’s not at all like a hajj but we do travel to it religiously every year.
A little homage to the grandest hosts in all Morrisdom, George and Paula Marti. The fact that they make and sell mighty gol-durn tasty wines doesn’t hurt either well, not until the next day anyway.
I don’t know exactly what a “mud cat” is but this site is a lot of fun for us singing cats. Not definitive, maybe, but close enough.
These high flyin’ guys round out the Minneapolis / St. Paul Morris community. Dancing the Bleddington style WITH style!
In the old days this link would have been called aiding the enemy. But as few of us are really British and few of them are really Scottish... Fun dancing for men & women!
This is where MTM rehearses in beautiful South Minneapolis. It’s home to many folkdance groups and has some great Contra Dancing and other really fun events.
To call this side a “mixed” Morris team is an understatement! These lads and lasses are anything but “traditional” in their Morris stylings. Always good for a grin!
