IVO BARNE

Ivo was one of the original & founding members of ESMM and was the first Bagman in 1957. Sadly he died 22nd Feb 1988 at the Woodside Morris Feast just after dancing Getting Upstairs.

His long standing friend and musical partner Des Herring (they both played with the Cornhuskers - a local Folk Dance band) introduces Ivo and his music in a short eulogy.

 

The first batch of tunes Ivo recorded in 1988 - some of his favourite music. The second set are Morris dance tunes recorded in 1958 which were used in early ESMM practices when Ivo was needed to make up a six man set. The final three tunes were recorded during live dancing in 1987.
