Mary Morrisson--Musicians and Dancers
We play traditional music for Ceilidh and Scottish and English country dances and classes, as well as for celebrations and special events such as weddings, birthday parties, anniversaries, Robert Burns Birthday and Tartan Day celebrations, Celtic and Renaissance festivals and other events.
Our traditional music ranges from the driving reels, jigs, strathspeys, and lively waltzes for Ceilidh and country dances, to the airs and marches, songs and early music for listening enjoyment. We specialize in playing Scottish, Irish, English and Contra dance music.
Our performances include a wide spectrum of traditional music, Scottish dancing (Step, Highland, National, Country, Ceilidh, Cape Breton), Gaelic lessons, songs, Robert Burns poetry, history, and stories. We regularly play for ceilidh and country dances and provide a dance caller.
Hannah, Alice, and Mary also teach music. Contact us to learn to play fiddle, guitar, piano, or Hammered Dulcimer for traditional music, ranging from Scottish and old-time to Jazz and classical.
CD's. Mary plays piano on Bernie Stoll's Hammer Dulcimer Sampler CD. Hannah has recorded several CD's. Alice is recorded on a number of Bluegrass CDs. Jenny and Mary are in the process of recording a Scottish dance CD, and Mary is entertaining the idea of recording a Scottish waltz CD.
