Commonwealth Morris Men Videos

In my years with the Commonwealth Morris Men we focused on evolving the Minneapolis and Withington traditions, and created many new dances. Most of them were filmed by Tony Barrand at the Marlboro Morris Ale, and are collected here.

Many thanks to Tony for these, and for his amazing film archive which contains countless interesting Morris videos.
