We're Stone the Crows Border Morris

Based in Leyland in Lancashire, and with over 40 members we’re a well-established group of ordinary men and women who share a passion for English traditional dance.

The Border tradition originates from the English / Welsh border counties of Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Shropshire.

In lean times such as winter, agricultural workers might take to the streets to dance for money, disguising their faces and wearing tattered coats to grab your attention.

Our raucous stick dances derive from the towns and villages along the border, brought to life with energetic musicians and an irreverent sense of fun.

See us at folk festivals, community and charity events, or just out and about as the mood takes us.
