Morris video

 



Below is what I have on tape, DVD or on the internet. Most were shot by Paul Kerlee who has now given me all his tapes. (Well, almost all. He still has some. See below for more info.)


If there is anything you'd like to see, let me know. I will try to put it up on YouTube. I can also make DVDs but I will limit them to straight dubs of many performances rather than compilations of individual dances. Write to me.

Here is a summary of what is on the tapes.
(back to top)

 

Years with asterisks (in the summary) indicate that there additional tapes for those events that I don't have yet. I hope to end up with them all. I am sure there will be some surprise additions, things that I didn't know were on those tapes too!

 

 

Hillside School (Hastings-on Hudson, NY) May Days: 80 - 89, 91

(Paul worked as a music teacher at the Hillside School in Hastings, NY. Perhaps some of his students might want something from these recordings?)
 

Pinewoods: 82, 83*, 87*, 01

 

NEFFA: 81, 83, 84*, 86*, 88*, 89?*, 94, 95?

 

Mixed Morris Ales w/ skits: 84* (Woods Hole), 87*, 88* (from 2 different cameras), 89 (89 skits*), 90*, 91, 92*, 93*, 94, Ship Ale 94, 95, 96

 

Mianus May Day at Pound Ridge: 86, 87 (w/ Hillside), 94, 95, 97*

 

Morris workshops: Sherborne 85*, Ducklington 86*, Bucknell 87*, Bucknell 88*, Fieldtown 90*

 

Mianus parties: Beers 86*, MarieÕs going away party 86, Gail and Nelson 88, Jim Norman going away 89*, 89*, John and Carol birthday party for Gail 94, Patsy Pub party 94*, 95?, my going away party 97*, 7/00*

 

NOMAD: 89*, 90, 91, 92*, 93*, 98*, 99*, 02

 

I also have some:

Six in Hand Sword: 86 + more I have a separate list for (not online)

Dartington England: 88

Sidmouth Folk Festival, England: 88

Sing Back The Sun (probably Hillside School): 89?*, 92*

Buffalo Gap 91?, 93*, 94*, 95*

NYC Sword Ale 95 Š Grand Central performances only

CDS 75th anniversary (in NYC): 90

 

 

One thing I am still looking for: Does ANYONE have Roger Geach reading Rev Prynne at any event? I have an excerpt from the 1992 Mixed Ale skit night but there may be other versions. ALSO, does ANYONE have any video of Mianus River MorrisÕ HellÕs Bells skit from that same year? IÕd love to know about it if you do.

Small print

Notes for PaulÕs Morris tapes

- Tapes subsequent to #1 & #2 may have the same content but may lack the info that those tapes have.

 

Codes used for PaulÕs personal tapes

 * = of interest to me

Ć = I have seen

transferred Š I have transferred to VHS or DVD or YouTube already

X = I DO NOT HAVE THESE TAPES YET. I have not seen them but I hope I get to.

 

Finally, there are many duplicate recordings of many performances. Also, I only noted a few names. Many dances on either side of the names mentioned will contain those dancers too. DonÕt worry if your name isnÕt included. I really only a wrote few names down and I wasnÕt doing it to slight anyone.
