43rd Annual Tour of the American Travelling Morrice

2018 Peak District Tour

21 – 28 July, 2018

Mr. Morris Sunderland, consumate morris fool, performed with the American Travelling Morrice in Maine in 1979. Original artwork copyright Roberta Wackett The American Travelling Morrice comprises dancers and musicians from across the USA and Canada. Originally composed of men from Binghamton, NY and Boston, the group has grown to include dancers from across North America, as well as several men from England. While many of these men dance regularly with teams in their home towns, they come together for one week each year to form the American Travelling Morrice. Since 1976, the group has toured throughout the United States and England, performing vigorous traditional village dances from the English Cotswolds.

During our current tour we will be joined by the Winster Morris Dancers as well as several of the morris and sword dancing teams from Sheffield. Do come and see us!
