Thread Name: Folklore: The Abbots Bromley Horn Dance
Subject: RE: Folklore: The Abbots Bromley Horn Dance
Ruth & Anahata - I don't understand why Abbotts Bromley in the USA depresses you so much - and Many Americans I know HAVE been to Abbotts Bromley and seen the dance performed, and many have a very soft spot for the dance and treat it with great reverence.

Ruth - Have you been to the USA to see how some people here treat English Customs?
In my experience (and that is after years of dancing in Two Revival Traditional villages in the Cotswolds) many people here are MORE interested in the Tradition than most English people. And Revels is also a community in its own way.
