May-O!

Songs to Sing Up the Sun and Raise the Maypole

Each year on the first of May, morris dancers gather before dawn on the banks of the Charles River at the Weeks Footbridge to welcome in the May. Sponsored by Newtowne Morris since 1981, the event draws over 300 friends and neighbors from the Cambridge Revels, the SCA, Lowell House at Harvard, and Cambridge community. Lynn has been one of the songleaders at Newtowne Mayday on the Charles since 1982.
