ASHLEY HUTCHINGS, JOHN KIRKPATRICK & chums ~ Morris On FLED 3037

fled-3037webA tremendously powerful and important recording from 1972 – MORRIS ON led to a re-examination of the English Morris dance and an upsurge of interest that continues to this day. Lovingly remastered and packaged in a smart new digipac, the classic MORRIS ON makes a welcome return to the catalogue.

In 1972 three former members of Fairport Convention – Ashley Hutchings, Richard Thompson and Dave Mattacks – got together with accordion-maestro John Kirkpatrick and acclaimed folk fiddler Barry Dransfield to record this ground breaking album. The results were quite extraordinary and led to a re-examination of the Morris tradition and the formation of many new dance sides. Thirty seven years later, leader Ashley Hutchings continues to tour with his popular Morris On band.
