The Team

Ted & Pat Morse: Ted began dancing with the Oxford Morris Men and Oxford City Folk Dance Club when he was 17, started calling and running barn dances at 19, and has barely paused since! Ted plays accordion, percussion and tuba, is an experienced band leader, teaches Morris, Sword and Country dancing (and more!) and is a regular tutor at Halsway Manor – along with Pat . In additional to playing and hosting the week, Pat will also be running craft workshops for you to try your hand at something different!

Stray Chords is the Rowe family band – Philip and Joyce, with their sons Joshua and Benjamin. The band plays lively traditional folk dance music from the British Isles and USA, for barn dances and ceilidhs.
