Plough Monday (the first Monday after 6th January- in this case, 9th Jan 2017) saw Grimsby Morris Men at the Red Lion in Redbourne. Luckily, the weather co-operated and the evening was dry and not too cold. After decorating the plough with ribbons and lights, the team performed a selection of our “Boarder” dances and sang “All jolly fellows that follow the plough” for a small but appreciative audience outside the pub. We then retreated to the warmth of the Red Lion to be greeted by the sound of Grimsby Morris men over the hostelry’s music system, curtesy of some recording from the internet! Very soon the live sound of Grimsby Morris was to be heard with a performance of the North Kelsey Plough Play followed by appropriate seasonal songs and tunes with an agricultural theme. A grand time was had by all. Thanks to the management at the Red Lion for allowing us to visit. Next year we must book a larger audience!
