Local gala. We were booked to dance outside the pub at 3pm. Lovely weather until I struck up the compulsory 'warning this is morris' chord and the first drops of rain fell. By the end of one iteration of 'Winster processional' it was coming down in buckets.

God hates Morris.

:D tG

It applies to Scottish music too, Dave: 2 "summer" outdoor events today wiped out by rain, but at least didn't even leave the house, as it was p'ing down all morning and forecast to continue for the day! I have been known to play my box underneath a very large poncho, but have to make sure I start on the right button!

Bad luck, Dave. I hope you got to perform after the rain stopped.

But God doesn't have Morris. If you keep up with astronomy, you realize that God is busy playing with quasars, black holes, X-ray jets, supernovae, etc. I fear He's just not paying proper attention anymore.

use the buckets for the collection
and was there Morris to celebrate Queen Liz's coronation all those years ago? 'Cos that would have made a reign dance.





I'll get my baldrics...............

Banjo is ok for Morris. Some side dances to Ted Edwards' "coal hole cavalry" on banjo!

Thanks for the update, Dave. I'm glad the show went on, and I know what you mean about keeping rain off the concertina.

Does your Morris team have any videos online?

I have called for 'synchronised under-water maypole dancing'
I was discussing this with the leader of Adlington dancers yesterday. They all had transparent raincoats, and an umbrella no don't hold it over me - over the instrument!'

Paul Ferrett of Foxwhelp Morris [s.w. Herefordshire] plays his melodeon in a black bin bag when it rains. Mustn't get it wet!

I've done that before. Stops the public getting frightened off by the sight of a concertina as well :-)

I do remember one year at Sidmouth when all the squeezers were playing under black bin bags for the Sunday morning on the prom!
My huge poncho came courtesy of one of the Moonwalks around Edinburgh: my son was on - wait for it - water patrol - handing out bottles of water to the walkers: but it didn't rain then, so i snaffled the poncho! And very useful it has been!
