Banchory Morris Men

Banchory Morris Men are the only group in Scotland now performing the traditional men’s “Morris Dances”. These are ritual set dances with ancient origins, danced to encourage fertility and to mark the seasons. Now principally associated with England, they are known to have been practised in Scotland up until the 17th Century; very similar forms of the dance were also once danced in other countries throughout Europe.
