A Morris team with a difference, Pecsaetan Morris is all-female and was formed by a group of friends in 2001, making their first public appearance a year later. Unlike last month's performers Sheffield City Morris, who presented mainly their original dances, Pecsaetan perform the dances of the Cotswolds villages which were the last stronghold of the tradition when the folklore collectors ensured that it was preserved. They were supported by partners and friends, some of whom are prominent figures on the folk scene.
