Tonight's Upshares.....

Eddie Mair | 17:10 UK time, Tuesday, 24 November 2009


...music was sent to us with this email: "A few weeks ago the Upshares Downshares theme music was inspired by the great English tradition that is morris dancing. Mr Ilett's rendition was a gallant attempt, somewhat marred by not having any morris dancers to hand or, indeed, any instruments.

Wickham Morris, based at Wickham in Hampshire, have both. The attached is a fine example of their prowess at both playing and dancing, and we present it for consideration as the Upshares Downshares theme music.

Incidentally, the side were so taken with the tune that it looks likely to be incorporated into our repertoire in the near future.

Yours sincerely
Cath Watkins"
