The Museum of Our Industrial Heritage will host a Mud Season Day of Dance on Saturday March 22. Free entertainment at 2pm features two teams of Molly Dancers on hand to welcome Spring and bring good luck to the museum for its 2014 season. Molly dancing is a form of English Morris Dance traditionally practiced by out of work ploughboys in midwinter, and now by “factory”lads”– including some dressed in women’s clothing (hence the name “Molly”). The local “Green River Tap & Die” team has invited “Handsome Molly” from Princeton NJ to help celebrate the end of winter with music, song and dance. All are welcome.

The Museum at 2 Mead STreet in Greenfield is free and open to the public on Saturday March 22, 1-4pm and by appointment at other times. Call 413-336-8275 for more information.
