The Acid Morris is a living tradition Border Morris dance side rooted in our twin passions: Morris dancing and acid techno. When the dances we dance were conceived they were danced to the high energy, riotous dance music of the time, on the instruments that were popular at the time. We leave the historical re-enactment style period-instrument playing to the other Morris sides – the Acid Morris band combines modern folk instrumentation with live 303 and drum machine over our portable 12v sound system. Why no-one has programmed a 303 full of the English folk songbook before is frankly completely beyond us.
