British Folk Dance Troupe Mossyback Morris Men To Kick Up Their Heels At Everett Library

Dancing at the library? Why yes that will happen next month in Everett, Washington and you are invited to come watch the show. Here are the details.

The event is free and pre-registration is not required.

Join the fun as the Mossybacks dance their own unique version of the Cotswold style of English Morris dance on Sunday, September 11, at 2 p.m. at the Main Library, 2702 Hoyt Ave, Everett. This event will feature rousing stick dances, live music and, as always, enthusiastic audience participation. 
The history of Morris dancing goes back over 500 years and is referred to by Shakespeare. This colorful folk performance is a celebration and display of dance and music, performed at seasonal festivals and holidays to banish the dark of winter, celebrate the warmth and fertility of summer and bring in autumn’s golden harvest. 

The Mossyback Morris Men have been dancing the ancient Morris dance in the Seattle area since 1980. They have performed all around the Pacific Northwest, nationally from the West Coast to the East, and internationally in such faraway places as Vancouver, Victoria, Toronto and Hong Kong.

This event is free and open to the public. Registration is not required. To receive updates in case of program changes, sign up here: 425-257-8000 or visit for more information about this or other library programs.

The Everett Public Library was founded in 1894 by the Everett Woman’s Book Club. The historic Main Library was built in 1934 by architect Carl Gould, and the Evergreen Branch opened in 1985. The library’s two branches serve the residents of the City of Everett and nearby locales, circulating over 400,000 items per year and hosting hundreds of programs for children and adults. We connect the community to resources and services that inform, educate, and entertain. For more information about the Everett Public Library, visit
