Since the 1960s a distinctive “Border Morris” style has grown. The tradition is characterised by black faces, tattered shirts or coats, lots of stick-clashing and a big band traditionally comprising melodeon, fiddle, concertina, triangle and tambourine.

Shot taken at Chepstow Apple Day, Monmouthshire, South Wales.

Hi, my name’s Chris. I live in the beautiful county of Monmouthshire.
When I was 10 I was given a Brownie 110 for a school trip – not a single shot came out! But ….. the photography bug was born.
My interests are broad in both subject & style leading to a diverse portfolio – check out My Directory at http://www.missmoneypenny.talktalk.net/ to see just how varied my style & products are.
I hope you enjoy your visit, my sites have been created with you in mind.

    What an unusual and terrific catch!!!

  • The Morris Dancers perform at many festivals throughout Wales, the costume colours vary quite dramatically. This photo was taken last year.* Thanks for the fave Gena

    I am at a lost for the purpose of the dance but the costumes and colors are terrific!!!!
    An excellent capture!!! Bill

  • I believe this dance was wassailing – a traditional ceremony that involves dancing and drinking to give thanks for the bumper crop of apples used for making cider.

    Good action shot, I tried to take pictures of the Shropshire Bedlam Dancers at the Green Man Festival in Clun earlier this year and found it quite tricky, they’re so fast

  • They are fast, several of my shots are blurred. Glad you like this one :)
