We're Stone the Crows Border Morris from Leyland.
Stone the Crows are a Border Morris side from Leyland in Lancashire, but the Border dance tradition traces its origins to the English / Welsh border counties of Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Shropshire.
Many of the dances we perform come from border county towns, such as Upton upon Severn. Some of the dances we perform are traditional, collected and recorded by those keen to preserve Britain’s rural, cultural heritage as the rise of industry, cities, transportation and even war threatened to wipe them out.
Other dances demonstrate a modern tradition, with collecting and sharing of tunes and dances between fellow Border teams.
We have a few dances we’ve created too, like ‘Sod Hall’, ‘S.T.C’ and ‘Ratty’.
As part of a living tradition, our repertoire changes as new dances are learned and older ones given a rest.
