Black Pig Border Morris - Our Music, Musicians and CD's









MUSIC

Our band has increased in numbers and diversity of instruments since our humble beginnings in 1986.
We started with one melodeon player and a concertina and have transformed into the
Black Pig Wall of Sound comprising of Melodeons, Concertinas, Banjos,Mandolins,Guitars,
Fiddles, Flutes and Recorders,Drums and Percussion to name but a few...
The majority of our dancers play some sort of instrument so whilst they are not
dancing, they join in with the band.

Our first CD, Roll a Ferret for Jesus was produced in 2002 and was originally conceived so that the musicians could get drunk while the dancers practiced. However, the forces of creation greater than exploding suns absorbed the energies of the universe and brought together a subtle blend
of ambiance v irreverence (That's what we tell everybody)
