Dorsett's 4-Hand Reel

A new world record was set on June 20, 2009, when 600 Morris dancers performed the Dorset Four-Hand Reel together on the beach at Scarborough's South Bay. Morris dancers from as far away as Aberdeen had travelled to Scarborough to mark the 30th anniversary of the Yorkshire Coast Morris, and the 20th anniversary of the annual Scarborough Fair Morris Weekend. The former record for the most Morris dancers performing the same dance together for five solid minutes previously had stood at 200.


Although the costumes and dancers are interesting, I was more fascinated by the number of musicians who also came along to participate. How many different types of instruments can you identify?
