Rackaback is a vibrant and thriving mixed border team in Hull, East Yorkshire. We formed in January 2011 and have built up a repertoire of traditionally inspired Border Morris dances with our own Rackaback twists. We dance to music played on traditional ‘morris’ instruments including accordian, concertina and melodeon to well know folk melodies and newly composed tunes.
We dance at events and pubs in Hull & East Yorkshire throughout the year - check out our Dance outs page.
