The Shropshire Bedlams & Martha Rhoden's Tuppenny Dish When these two teams from Shropshire burst on to the morris dancing world in the mid 1970s, nobody knew what had hit them. They were the first to go round together as companion teams of men and women and the first to concentrate exclusively on the previously neglected dances from Shropshire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire - Border Morris. Both sides present radical and revolutionary interpretations of the original dances, along with a large dollop of repertoire specially concocted by team members. These days you can see teams inspired by the Bedlams throughout the morris world, whereas only the most discerning have followed the lead of Martha Rhoden's. Now in their 48th year they continue to put on a show full of sparkling originality and vitality.
