Foresters music



Foresters Morris as part of the Chatsworth House Spectacular.
More here.


Our dance musicians include accordion (Eric), melodeon (Simon and Phil) (if you class melodeon as music), recorder (Simon), concertina (Ken), and bodhran players (William is definitely 3rd bodhran). Our version of the music is available in both audio and printed form, see the repertoire information and the links below. The "mp3" audio files are played by Eric Foxley on a 48-bass Hohner Student VM, and are also available as two CDs. The printed scores come from on the Nottingham Folk Music Database.

We also enjoy singing songs and playing in pubs after a dance tour - and drinking excellent Mallard beer.
