Thread Name: Folklore: The Abbots Bromley Horn Dance
Subject: RE: Folklore: The Abbots Bromley Horn Dance
They've been dancing the Horn Dance at the Thaxted Ring Meeting every June since 1947. That's what I meant by "I think it counts as rooted in Thaxted now."

And as is only right, it has changed over the years. I would srongly suspect that the same will be true of the dance as performed in Abbots Bromley. Living traditions aren't set in amber so they never change.
