The Outside Capering Crew presents morris dance for the 21st century: sometimes flashy, sometimes comic, and always with exhilarating music.

Our eclectic repertoire features prize-winning morris jigs, broom dances and brain-bending “bacca pipes” jigs – England’s answer to the Scottish sword dance. It’s all served up with a dash of showmanship (and a very silly horse).

We have performed at festivals in Hungary, Germany, Sweden, Sark, Belgium and America, at major UK folk festivals and even at The Big Chill (lots of techno stuff). Interval spots at ceilidhs are a speciality.

Festival organisers may like to know we won the prize for collecting the most money at Ely Folk Festival in 2017.
