Blackpowder follow a very relaxed attitude to Morris tradition, if we like it we’ll probably do it – our way. Being based in the Bonfire centre of the known universe gives us a certain attitude to being told how to do something. This attitude is called awkward, or in Lewes language – we won’t be druv. So we dress like a border side, but dance Cotswold – border style. Somewhat unsurprisingly our Border  dancing tends to look a bit Cotswold – except when it doesn’t. The only certainty is that we, and our audience, will be enjoying what we do.
