MP3s : (press) - recorded at rehearsal Dec 2000. Should give you a very rough idea of what we do - but have a lot of rough edges (as you'd expect from a rusty choir)
If you need spare tatters, try Jacqui or Mac & Hil . If you have spare tatters please advise.

High-class Mumming done to order! if you would like to book a side for your fete or fair, we'd like to talk to you - please call or E-mail.
Reasonable rates - ad-hoc busking often comes free with a mumm. N W Step-Clogging frequently available.
For information on Mumming, go here or for notes on Hocktide, see this.
The BBTWTA is a wholly voluntary group dedicated to the practice of tradition. Fees for mumming generally go to support the Stortfolk Music Club and/or Pegleg Unicorn. Proceeds from the Wassail (except free beer) always go to charity with no deductions for kit or refreshment.
