"Otherwise, here's some contemporary neo-Pagan 'ritual dance' folk-revival fun for the all the fakelore fans out there: Lammas Festival / John Barleycorn."

Just a bit of info on this dance.

I wrote and put it together in 1992. Originaly, I used the Hymn tune 'We plough the fields and scatter' after hearing a version of John Barleycorn sung by Pete Castle on an old 'VFM Value for Money tape' purchased when I was a kid from Woolworths, in the 70's. The theme of dance follows the song...ish!!
