Truculent Rustics

What is Molly dancing? What did it look like? Who performed it and why? Truculent Rustics shows how Molly dancing developed from Plough Monday and other wintertime communal celebrations. It was boisterous, even riotous, combining elements of rough music, alms-seeking, and guising. An appendix gives details of known troops of Molly dancers, their home village, appearance and performance.
