CraigS Sword Dances of Northern England (14) RE: Sword Dances of Northern England 24 Jul 03

There was a book in our local library, which has been sold off in a library sale, which gave material collected from the last surviving dancer of the Kirkby Malzeard side at the turn of the century. It gave the tunes in part, and a song/mummers play, and recorded that the old man said that he had only taught the dancers a part of the dance in order to perform a display at the Ripon millinery festival - implying that there had been subsequent disagreement and the side were not dancing the full dance.
