A recording of a Morris Federation talk on “Dalliance[s] with Dance … Clogs, Bells, Horns and Straw!” by Doc Rowe held on Zoom on 26 March 2023. The #MorrisFedvideo lasts for 1 hour 9 minutes.
In this illustrated talk, Doc Rowe reflects on fifty-odd years of witnessing and collecting dance performance and tradition – the accent might be on the odd!
From the early 1960s, with an early interest in song and step dancing in his native Devon, a visit to Mayday in Cornwall initiated an unremitting preoccupation with cultural tradition.
