Mollies At Welborne
Most unusually, the musos got a look in with the newspaper photos! Here am I in my posh hat, Nicky on melodeon (it's a GIANT one!) and you can just see Erin on fiddle at the far end. The Ouse Washes Molly Dancers were invited to dance out at the Welborne Arts Festival last weekend. For a small village it is an amazing festival; unfortunately I had family commitments (mum!) so I could only be there for the Saturday, and the Sunday was the better day, weather-wise. We managed to time our dancing between showers, but there was some very hot weather as well, it was most disconcerting!
So mostly photos today, but if you want to know more about Molly Dancing, do go to the Ouse Washes website, there is loads of information/photos etc there.
Ellen, Rob, Linda and Nicky enjoying a beer break in the sunshine - it was really hot, for half an hour or so! Then the wind got up and the skies darkened. English Summertime!
Me and The Hat!
Ellen relaxing before getting her clobber on. She and Andrew were among the intrepid ones who camped over the weekend.
This gentleman is the Sheringham Town Crier, a lovely man who did a terrific job at the Festival, keeping everyone informed of what was happening where and when.
Alex and Stuart looking somewhat pensive.
Yes, I want one too! This is Alex's beautiful camper-van, and I will be sharing it with her when we all go to Towersey Festival later this year. Yippeee!
Here is Bryan, in his favourite frock. Bryan is Andrew's understudy for Molly and Broom Dancer. Also seen is Bryan and Elin's cocker spaniel Porter.
Bryan assisting with the repair of Alex's wardrobe malfunction! She almost danced her frock off!
And here are the Mollies in full swing. This is about half the full strength of the side. It is very energetic work, and they need to swap places now and again! I feel blessed being one of the musos, not required to thresh about!
So that's it for now, hope you've enjoyed the photos, do look them up, it's quite fascinating to read all about Molly Dancing and the Ouse Washes Molly Dancers in particular.
