The Outside Capering Crew presents morris dance for the 21st century: sometimes flashy, sometimes comic, and always with exhilarating music.
We were winners in the
2019 jig contest
at Sidmouth Folk Festival.
Our eclectic repertoire includes broom dances (tricky spins, throws and kick-ups) and brain-bending “bacca pipes” jigs – England’s answer to the Scottish sword dance, but more edgy. It’s all served up with a dash of showmanship (and a very silly horse. Or maybe a cow).
We’ve performed in America, Dubai, Sark and mainland Europe, and at major UK folk festivals.
Our 2019 showreel will raise a smile:
