Happy New Year (2020)

It has been a good start to the year for Marlee Morris.  Four intrepid Marlee travelers went to Napier in New Zealand to attend and dance at the “Morris on Tour NZ” which is an annual event.  This year it was hosted by Heart of the Sun, a mixed Cotswold side.  Good fun was had by all as they say.  For a video of us dancing with numbers helped by the Adelaide Morris Men see Broad Cupid.  And for some photos see Photos.

After returning home, we danced at the Wanneroo Festival.  It was a good little stand.

In the future we have bookings at the National Folk Festival and Fairbridge Festival to look forward to.

Down South Tour 2019

Marlee Morris have been invited by the Perth Morris Men to join them and others in the annual Down South Tour. There will be various opportunities to see u dancing.  The itinerary is as per link – DS Tour Foot Ups 2019

We will be dancing at the following locations:

National Folk Festival 2019

Eight dancers and six musicians headed East to Canberra to join the Morris contingent at the National Folk Festival. We joined five other sides including Black Joak, Belswagger, Britannia and Surly Griffins and had great fun over the four days of the festival.  Good feedback was received from our peers about Marlee’s first appearance at the National Folk Festival.  For some videos – see Videos and for some photos – see NFF 2019 Photo

National Folk Festival 2019

An exciting start to 2019

The big news for Marlee Morris is that we are going to be a “Display Side” at the 2019 National Folk Festival which is held in Canberra at Easter.  The Australian Morris Ring organises the Morris Dancing part of the Folk Festival.  Six sides are normally chosen with three sides being display sides and three being busking sides.  The display sides have to provide a half hour display and a one hour workshop as well as doing other “busking” spots around the festival.  Joining us in Canberra are Belswagger Morris Dancers, Britannia Morris, Black Joak Morris, Fair Maids of Perth (& Sons), and Surly Griffin Morris For more see National Folk Festival Performance

We have also been invited to dance at a Wedding.  Naturally I cannot disclose too many details but it is still exciting to be able to be part of such a joyous occasion.

Merry Christmas from Marlee Morris

Merry Christmas to all.

It has been a good start to our time as a new side in Perth. Since announcing the new side we have done the following:

Looking forward to a great 2019
