      It has been a few years since I worked the Southern Renn Faires, but
      they continued when the fair moved. I left about the time the
      management changed however, so I don't know if they are still there. I
      thing the Side's name was The Pipe and Bowl Morris.

      On a related note, if you have a copy of the sheet music I would be
      very interested in getting a copy. I would like to arrange for for pipe
      and tabor.

      "The poetry of history lies in the quasi-miraculous fact that
      once on this earth, on this familiar spot of ground walked
      other men and women as actual as we are today, thinking
      their own thoughts, swayed by their own passions but now
      all gone, vanishing after another, gone as utterly as we
      ourselves shall be gone like ghosts at cockcrow."
