Jackstraws Morris at Oxford Folk Festival

The place was awash with morris dancers all weekend (mutter, mutter), so apparently some pictures must be posted. Managed to restrict things just to Jackstraws – many of the other sides seen were – errr – less than inspiring, if more exotically costumed and made-up.

Just before dancing, some stray from a Civil War society angrily read a proclamation forbidding morris dancing in Oxford on a Sunday: the impact was lessened by his dentures coming loose in the excitement. Jackstraws were worth watching, as always.
