GUEST,Paul Folklore: Green Ginger Morris Team (39) RE: Folklore: Green Ginger Morris Team 18 Jul 09

Actually I can remember my first danceout with Green Ginger Morris. I can also remember my last one. I also remember dancing Goathland and Winlaton with the same team. Perhaps a change in emphasis might help? It was Green Ginger Morris and Sword in my day, perhaps Green Ginger SWORD and Morris might attract some flashing blade types. My current team - sword dancers, are all under twenty-one with most being under sixteen.
On the subject of pagan origins by the way, I'm sorry to disappoint but the last word on that one has yet to be written. One thing I can absolutely guarantee with appropriate evidence, these dances are older than 15th century. The problem lies with the word 'morris' not the evidence of antiquity.
