They will be performing with full musical support at The Talbot Inn in Gretton High Street. The bar will open at 12 noon and after a suitable lubrication the Morris Men will start their performance at 1pm.
Rutland Morris Men will be supported by up to seven of their own musicians, featuring melodeons, accordions, fiddles and sometimes more exotic instruments. They are renowned for their local dances throughout Spring and Summer (rain or shine !) and also have been seen on their travels to national and international festivals.
For information about the Rutland Morris men, their history and their performance schedule visit their website www.morrismen.org.uk
During the performance they will take a collection to pay for their rehearsal venue, equipment etc. but any surplus is always donated to local charities.
The Gretton Music Festival 2012, sponsored by eggbOx Graphics, will feature the widest range of performances ever seen in one festival.
