Who We Are

The MossyBack Morris Men have been dancing the ancient Morris Dance in Seattle, WA since 1980. We have performed all around the Pacific Northwest, nationally from the West Coast to the East, with performances as far apart as Los Angeles, Chicago, Baltimore, and even on the Capitol steps in Washington DC and internationally in such far away places as Vancouver, Victoria, Toronto and Hong Kong.

We dance our own unique versions of the Cotswold style of English Morris Dance, from the villages of  Bledington and Ducklington in the Cotswolds, and our own unique Seattle style, Jamahlington, developed by us, over several years. Ask us about the history of this tradition. We have been dancing these older traditions as a team for 40 years now. We have created a few new dances to add to the repertoire of traditional dances within those village traditions. We've also been known to let our wild side show with some border dancing and fire performing.

Read some actual press articles here or check out these reference letters including Queen Elizabeth's comments. Enjoy browsing our photos of past dance-outs.

We are available for hire. Please contact us! See the contact page.
