We’re very happy to announce that Eddy O’Dwyer will be supporting our upcoming shows at
Newcastle Under Lyme
Eddy’s a young singer from the old style of traditional folk song that inspired our director, Damien Barber, to go professonial back in the 80s and his no holds barred approach will be a perfect complement to The Lock in!
Breaking Tradition is currently working on a new Folk & Hip Hop dance show aimed primarily at children and families. We’re working with a number of organisations to secure funding for a UK tour this coming Autumn and with an accompanying outreach and education programme.
As part of this programme we are looking for Morris groups who would be interested in taking part in school/community group workshops in Sep/Oct 2014 with a view to a presenting a short display at the tour venues in Oct/Nov 2014. Through this project we hope to help raise the profile of traditional English dance at local level along with developing positive links between schools & community groups, Morris groups and high profile theatre venues.
We are looking for groups in the following areas:
Barrow in Furness, Bromsgrove, Bury St Edmunds, Buxton, Canterbury, Crawley, Derby, Doncaster, Hull, Ilfracombe, Ipswich, Leeds, Manchester, Milton Keynes, Newbury, Norwich, Nottingham, Shrewsbury, Tewkesbury, Wakefield, Yeovil
