Odds & Ends
1. On Monday, 4th June a BBC TV programme included our old friends Mendip MM. About the only recognisable member was Peter Rose in the part of The Fool.
2. The summer issue of the EFDSS magazine included a review of Alan Bell’s The Cocklers (Songs from a Time and a Place), part of which read, ”The most successful tracks step away from the template, notably The White Sands of Morar, a Scottish diversion that is lifted by a captivating fiddle solo from Sue Jennings.” Well, there’s fame for you – and well done Sue!
3. In the same publication was a page about Morris Hey – An Introduction to Morris Dancing, part of which read, ”The manual contains instructions for teaching six dances – three Cotswold Morris Border Morris North West Morris dance (Walton’s Parade) and one Molly Dance......A bit of fame for Ed Sanders and Leyland MM – but I wonder whether either will be acknowledged!!
