The Ghost of Mansfield Morris
Weekly Wednesday sing-around from 8.30pm. Contact Pam on 07890 156950 for more information.
The venue changes each week as follows:
'The Ghost of Mansfield Morris' meet in different pubs around the Mansfield area every Wednesday night
from around 8:30 pm. The Mansfield Morris Men used to dance outside pubs in traditional costume every
Wednesday, which was followed by much drinking and a sing-song in the pub. Unfortunately the dance team
became depleted through age of the older members and the inability to find younger people interested in
keeping the tradition going, so the dancing had to stop, but the drinking and singing carried on, hence
the name 'Ghost of the Morris'.
Gradually more musicians and singers joined the 'Ghost', now there are often over twenty of them
who take it in turns to perform acoustically with guitars, mandolins, banjos, melodeons etc. The
songs are a mixture of Folk, Country, Irish, Ballads, Monologues and Singalong.
