42nd Annual Tour of the American Travelling Morrice

2017 Capital District Tour

July 30 - August 5, 2017

Artwork copyright Peter Klosky; Photography Lloyd Lachow The American Travelling Morrice is coming to town, and you'll definitely know it when you see it! This group of Morris dancers has appeared each summer for over 40 years in various locations across the country, performing vigorous traditional village dances from the English Cotswolds.

Tours will visit Washington, DC, Annapolis, Baltimore, Leesburg, Frederick and other locations. This is our second tour of this area, and some may remember us from 2010.

The American Travelling Morrice is comprised of dancers and musicians from across North America and abroad. While many of us perform regularly with teams in our hometowns, we come together for one week each year to form the Travelling Morrice. Since 1976, the group has toured throughout the United States and England.
