Snuffy Darkie Day - BBC Radio 4 on "The Untold" (89* d) RE: "Darkie" Day - BBC Radio 4 on "The Untold" 01 Mar 16


"why was its influence not felt on Cotswold and North West morris"

This is only my rationalisation, but the Cotswold and North West traditions were both based on public display - in summer, in daylight and in front of large(ish) crowds - and primarily as a "show". the dancers would be proud to be recognised as they showed off their skills

Whereas Border tended to be done in Winter, at night, and primarily as a fund-raiser. The dancers would have more reason to seek anonymity, especially if the activity was generally regarded as little more than begging.
