Rant and Raven Morris
Our 20th Anniversary (1994 to 2014)
The Anniversary Ale aka the IPA (Inside Passage Ale) -- June 21 to June 29, 2014
also known as herding the cats Ale
Just who came?
Here are the official sides that came ---
Misty City Morris
Minnesota Traditional Morris Men
Ragged Robin Morris
Vancouver Morris Men
It must be said that we had a whole group of people who also came and supported us and the different sides. Without family and friends and folks from other sides attending, this Ale would be much the poorer. Plus it helps to have a few saner ones to even out the Morris insanity.
Please refer to this this website for Ale information along with the Facebook event page. As some members do not have Facebook, we are going to update this website as well.
Photos of the Ale?!?!? Yes, I will be working on that. Just in case you come here and wonder. Links to where will be posted here. Photos will be posted here.

Just so everyone can see one of our performances from years past, here is a link to one in 1998 courtesy of Bob MaCarthur. We are at 1:45:45 into the filming. This was at the Anchorage Folk Festival of 1998.
Morris Dancing in Alaska. We work to provide a traditional dance (somewhat) that has been practiced for several centuries in England. Our small part in helping keep this tradition alive and it bring it to this part of the world is to make sure it rewards you by enjoying our performance as much as it rewards us to perform.
Each dance may have a historical meaning that has been carried forward, modified, and consequently performed by subsequent Morris Sides such as ours. As such, it is a living tradition that is subject to change and interpretation. Enjoy, take part, and know that this living history is part and parcel of the world community.
Who are we?
