Ruston Hornsby Folklore: Abram Morris Dance (25) RE: Folklore: Abram Morris Dance 21 Jun 06


Les in Chorlton - thank you for introducing the concept of "Urban Clog Morris" in your posting. This could signify a new development for the NW clog tradition, "Urban" in music terms these days being used in reference to Rap and associated black music culture. This could very well point to the future. I will suggest to Rivington and Horwich that they re-equip with sportswear, expensive fashion trainers, bling jewellery and replace the band with Gangsta Rappers.

PS - do try to get to see Abram on Saturday, it's pretty unique. It starts at the "Morris Dancers Ground" (it's actually marked as such on maps)by the former Maypole Colliery in Abram.
