Dances and Music
We perform a mixture of Morris dances, both North West and garland.
Some dances are traditional, some are 'borrowed' from other teams and
others are our own, based on traditional steps and figures.
Below is a list of the dances in our current
repertoire and their corresponding music. The clickable dance titles
are links to files containing the music in abc
format (a description of abc
is given here

files can be obtained from here
(of these, MCMusiceditor
are probably the easiest to get going).

Many of the tunes are derived from those found on the JC's ABC Tune Finder [tunefind] on trillian.mit.edu

and modified to suit our dances.
The clickable music titles are links to midi
files which can be played using Windows Media Player (or any one of several other
programs). If you need files in the (much bigger) MP3
format and don't know how to convert from midi
, then email me, the webmaster
