Goodbye Summer!

Chinewrde Morris, still life

Well, there we had it: the last Bank Holiday before Christmas, and not much sunshine for it. I didn’t get to the Shrewsbury Folk Festival, due to lack of money, but I did get to see a little of the dancing in The Square on the Saturday.

Pig Dyke Molly, circle

This crazy bunch are Pig Dyke Molly, from the Cambridgeshire Fens. Spectacular costumes and make up – they looked good against the old buildings in High Street.

This is Nodger, Pig Dyke’s mascot. A bit blurred as it was coming for me at the time!

 

 

 

 

Chinewrde Morris, Shrewsbury 2009

Chinewrde Morris Dancers are a ladies side. Clogs and bobbins. The come from Kenilworth. Lively dancing and a grand noise from their large band of musicians.

 What did you do on the last weekend in August?
