Armaleggan Band

Want to give it a go and release your inner Grrrr…?  Whether you’re interested in dancing or playing for the band, do get in touch  to talk to us.

Fancy some dancing, song, and merry-making?
We are keen to introduce new members, especially if you are athletic with plenty of Grrr to keep up the ‘oomph’ and gusto of the Border style.  If you don’t know how much inner Grrr you have, come and let us find it for you – you may be surprised. We particularly welcome interest from men and minorities.  We usually introduce novice members in January with a view to teaching three dances that you can dance-out by the start of the performance season (April-October).  At dance-outs, when you’re not dancing you’ll be in the band, joining the percussion.  Oh, and taking on some Morris fuel (bring a tankard!). You can also join in our singing sessions in the pub after practice or when we dance-out with other Morris sides (we’ll teach you the songs too). If you fancy a shot at this, send a message to armaleggan(#a)gmail.com*.   Practice is at Cumnor Village Hall near Oxford (OX2 9QF) on Wednesdays 8pm – 9.30pm from January to April.

Or are you a budding Morris musician, looking to join a friendly band?
We are looking to swell the ranks of our band, which is a major feature of our performances and a distinctive feature of the side. In particular we are looking for extra fiddle and melodeon players but would also welcome most others. (Sorry, no piano accordions.)  A love of dressing up, singing, imbibing and fun would help as would being a tiny bit bonkers.  Owning your own tankard would be an advantage.  If you fancy a shot at this, send a message to armaleggan(#a)gmail.com*,  or just turn up on a Wednesday night and give it a go. We practice at Cumnor Village Hall near Oxford (OX2 9QF) on Wednesdays from 8pm – 9.30pm from September to April. Cheers!
