Plain Capers: Morris Dance Tunes from the Cotswolds Review

by Steven McDonald

Focusing on Morris Dance as practiced in the Cotswolds, John Kirkpatrick has here crafted an album of traditional Morris music without recourse to electrification (the ultimate curse of the Albion Band.) Energetic, entertaining and sometimes highly amusing, one of the best results of the 1970s Morris boom in the U.K. Martin Carthy is among the supporting cast.
