Eken Morris Tour 2019

On Wed 3rd Sept we welcomed Eken Morris to Quarry. They are a mixed side from Stockholm, Sweden who were touring around England. They had certainly done their homework and knew all about Headington Quarry Morris, William Kimber, Cecil Sharp and our long history.

We met at the Six Bells on a fine evening and took turns showcasing our different styles. As we moved on to the Chequers the light faded and by the time we got to the Mason's Arms we were dancing in the dark!. I think the highlight was both sides joining together to perform the Dance Off lit only by the lights of the pub.

Refreshed with beer we retired to the Coach House and at Eken Morris's request we visited William Kimber's grave. They felt that this would be an important part of their trip to Quarry. At the Coach House we enjoyed eats and an enthusiastic session of singing and storytelling. A great evening was had by all and we look forward to seeing our Swedish friends again.
