Guise Dancing, Madron

About this item

Description

Ted Gundry chats with one of the Madron Guise Dancers about her memories as a guise dancer from the 1930s. We do not know the lady's name, but Ted did remember that the interview took place in Crows-an-Wra in the late 1970s or 1980.

The former guise dancer explains the activities of the Madron Guise Dancers, the music they played, their costume, and the plays they performed. She talks about her experience of the the BBC radio broadcast on guise dancing which she remembers as being in 1930 in St John's Hall, Penzance, but was in fact in 1937 in Landithy Hall, Madron.
