As I understand it the exemption only applies when the Morris dancers are actually dancing. If the band plays a little introduction before they start, an offence has occurred. I hope the police are keeping a serious eye on this: I have observed on occasion that sometimes the dancers stop and chat and have a beer, and at that moment a melodeon player plays another tune to himself. This is also illegal, and needs jumping on quickly.
