Artist Details

Beltane Border

Beltane Border are based in Devon; a mixed side that has been growing and evolving for 18 years. They dance their own energetic
interpretation of Border Morris and their style is wild, bold and dangerous, bringing with them a feeling of mystery and menace. Although performing a couple of traditional
dances most of their repertoire has been created especially for them with strong influences from the ancient standing stones and stone circles of Dartmoor. Fine, haunting melodies and steady, pounding rhythms make their music as exceptional as their dances. They wear mainly black, with the addition of skulls, wings, bones and feathers. Once seen – never forgotten!
