The Ferette Morris Men

Formed in Autumn 2002, the Ferrette Morris Men perform traditional English morris dances, mainly from the Cotswold villages. Usually danced by sets of six men, this ancient fertility ritual involves waving hankies, clashing sticks, jingling bells and replenishing lost fluids with pints of beer.From September to June we practice every Wednesday evening from 8pm at the Foyer de Sapeur Pompiers in the medieval Alsace town of Ferrette (about 25 mins from Basel). Participation is free and new members are always welcome, especially musicians who can play the accordion, fiddle, penny whistle, piccolo or harmonica. In keeping with the tradition of the Morris Ring, dancing is reserved for men only, but musicians can be whatever sex they choose. Some of our members live in Basel, so transport can be arranged if necessary.
