Welcome to Rackaback Morris

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.

Next dance out: Hull Folk Festival 15 Aug 15

The 15th August, 2015 will be an auspicious day for traditional dance in Kingston Upon Hull. Following the success of the previous days of dance organised in conjunction with the Hull Folk Festival we hope that 2015 will be bigger and better. We are expanding from the old town area to new sites in the city centre which will offer dance from the centre to the festival site via Trinity Square.
