MADDER MILL MOLLY MUSIC SESSION 2nd July 5pm onwards The Fox and Goose, 7 Heptonstall Road, Hebden Bridge, HX7 6AZ
We'll be playing from a list of our favourite English session and Morris tunes. Everyone welcome to bring your instrument(s) and join in, start some tunes if you like. We'll aim to play at moderate speeds to suit a variety of experience levels, mostly in box-friendly keys of
G, D and E minor. Alternatively grab a pint or two and enjoy the music
Madder Mill Molly is a mixed gender Molly team based in the Carshalton/Wallington area, who, after much research and preparation, finally got off the ground at the beginning February 2020. With practice and enthusiasm, we had hoped to be dance-ready for the 2020 season, alas, of course, this was not to be. Like everyone else our plans had to be put on hold.
As a new team we are always looking for new members to join our team. No previous experience is necessary but because of the dance style, anyone joining us as dancer will need to have good knees and hips! Other than that, enthusiasm, and a willingness to help build/be part of a team is all that is asked.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions or for further details.
Although we are an adult team, we could consider older accompanied children

WHAT IS MOLLY DANCING?
It is a style of Morris Dancing that originated in East Anglia. No hankies, bells or sticks, but a definite need for disguise.
WHERE ARE YOU BASED?
Not East Anglia but the London Borough of Sutton in the Carshalton /Wallington area
WHERE DO YOU DANCE ?
Once the team is fully up and running we hope to dance at various events and of course a good old dance out at a pub or two!
