Tom joined the Morris at 14 after a lifetime of folk. Having been taken by his parents to festivals even before he was born, Tom was always in touch with the folk world. A former member of Grove Scout Group , Tom was taught to dance by Graham Hubbard in preparation for a performance in Switzerland. At first Tom was reluctant to take up the tradition, but he is now happily enjoying every minute of it! Tom is slowly learning to play the Melodeon. His favourite dance is Princess Royal ( Bampton ) even if he does get it wrong sometimes!
