Who is Black Wren?

Black Wren Morris is the newest morris dance team in Arizona. Formed in April of 2006 by Jeremy Cheek, Laura Masterson, and NoEl Hapgood, this team has been building up their repertoire to perform for you now! They are a mixed side that plans to undertake as many Cotswold traditions that they can get their hands on as well as dabbling in Border, Molly, Sword and Rapper traditions. This team has also delved into the “invented tradition” which consists of something that they like to call “Hayden’s Ferry”, developed here in the Sonoran region. You may also hear them refer to it lovingly as “desert morris”. Black Wren strives for energy, unity, and bringing Morris dance to a larger community in Arizona.
