Abstract

Named after the ship of the infamous Captain Pugwash, Black Pig Border was formed in 1986 in Eastwood on the Nottinghamshire and Derby border. Their founder members were a group of like minded dancers and musicians who had tried other forms of Morris dancing and were looking for something a little different.

From this small group of people, Black Pig evolved over the years to what you see today. A a mixed group of both male and female dancers and musicians that have performed all over England at a wide variety of events, ranging from pub tours through fĂȘtes and festivals. They have danced in California and Germany and also appeared in an episode of Peak Practice. They have also been involved in the research behind the Stephen Booth Book Blind to The Bones which is dedicated to the Black Pig Border dance group.
