Description

Longford Morris Dancers are a group of Morris Dancers who, although associated with the town of Longford, rehearse in the city of Launceston in Tasmania. The group perform the Cotswold and Borders (the border between Wales and England) versions of Morris
dancing, and often appear at public events. Morris dancing is an English folk dance that is attested from the late fifteenth century. There are also other dances mentioned elsewhere in Europe that may have a common origin.
