Editorial

Welcome to summer – I think. This must be the worst year I recall for summer weather — since we aren’t even in the wet August phase yet (recall Sidmouth 1997!?); several tours have been drizzly if not sodden. Still, I’ve been to some good events – the hottest and happiest so far was Kirtlington Lamb Ale, where we all sweltered and enjoyed some brilliant dance displays.

Obviously you are all very busy dancing, in spite of the downpours, as I have had to wheedle, cajole and otherwise beg for contributions this time. It’s feast or famine; last issue I didn’t have to chase anyone up! This issue underlines the international aspects of morris – friendships forged and influences spread around . I hope you enjoy the contents of this issue and that the weather improves for the remainder of the dancing season.

Two newsy items – did you all see that Carlisle Sword, Morris & Clog were banned from performing at an event because of their kit and repertoire – memo to avoid Oh Susannah!

Also, since I managed to get to see “Chicken Run” this week … to the longer-established readers of Morris Matters – what is the connection between Chicken Run and Morris Matters? ( clue – look back to about volume 4 !)
