Crew musicians Mark Rogers and Lawrence Wright play in their own ear-catching style. For the dancers, the result is a thrilling musical maelstrom that makes for an exuberant show.

The driving pace of the Crew’s melodeons is heard to great effect on three of the albums in Ashley Hutching’s Morris On series, euphorically overlaid with the full weight of Ashley’s band.

Many of the tunes used by The Outside Capering Crew have come from the 19th century Cotswold morris tradition; some are more contemporary, and others – Four Up and the tunes for our broom dance and stick-throwing dance – have been written by our own musicians, past and present.

  1. I saw your fabulous dancing at Priddy folk festival. Any chance someone could send me the Rotweiller tune. I play accordion and would really like to learn that tune. I’ve looked on your web site but can’t find any tunes.
    Thanks x

    1. Hi Judy

      Sorry – I’ve only just seen this. I’ll asked Mark to respond. It’s a cracking tune.
