Jenny Pluck Pears

By Philip_H
Another from the first Beverley Real Ale Festival (19th-20th October 2012), held in the beautiful surroundings of St Mary’s medieval parish church, Beverley, East Yorkshire.

The two minstrels were accompanying ‘The Raving Maes’ – lady morris dancers with attitude! One of the traditional dances/tunes they perform/play is called ‘Jenny Pluck Pears’.

Thanks for all the C&Cs on ‘Half of White Rabbit’ (which features a ‘Raving Mae’!).

The group of people are very well composed (pun intended) with the heads bicly curving round the pillar.
