Subject: RE: Folklore: The Abbots Bromley Horn Dance
If you look at the messages on Youtube, Anahata, it wouldn't appear to be universal consent!

McGrath, personally I think it would be a good thing if they started referring to the Thaxted Horn Dance, and the sides in America did the same...nothing wrong with that at all, IMHO. There needs to be a distinction between what they do, and the annual Abbots Bromley tradition. That's all.

Chris, it's their choice to occasionally perform it outside the parish, and that's their privilege. But as you say, it's not the same thing as seeing it in Abbots Bromley.
