We are absolutely stunned! Steampunk Morris have had their flabber well and truly ghasted! It is impossible to really put into words the way we are feeling right now following the side’s second visit to the Lyme Folk Weekend. From the outset on Saturday the response from visitors to Lyme, local residents and local traders (Mr Pastyman, thank you sir for the sustenance provided, and Mr Cheesemonger, thank you sir for your support and calls for particular dances), was phenomenal. Members of the airship crew were approached throughout the weekend by people enquiring about next performances, where we come from, and what we are doing, performances ended with calls for encores (this is morris dancing!), and the evening ceilidh spot was unbelievable with the large crowd packed into the marquee singing along with the music as the dancers did their stuff (and there were more calls for encores). Captain Jack Skylark found himself having drinks bought for him by just going into a public house while two of the side’s fairer sex were still being stalked by admirers a day after the event finished while they were in town incognito. The weekend was truly epic.
So, a huge thank you to all those at Lyme Folk Weekend for your invitation and trust. And another huge thank you to everyone who saw us perform, spoke to us, bought us drinks, gave us pasties, sang along with us and gave us encouragement. It really does mean a lot. Thank you!
PS If anyone reading this has a video of the ceilidh spot performance then would you please get in touch.
