blog comment by US dancer Miriam

The Outside Capering Crew presents English morris dancing 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.

There’s also The Big Caper Show, a one-hour entertainment we’ve created with Berkshire Bedlam.
