No Smoke Without Fire

This well known saying is often used to mean nothing happens without a reason, or there is usually some truth in a rumour. Or to imply that you can't have one thing without another.

Fire In Music

Many times fire has been an inspiration in music.

From such things as "The Magic Fire Music" from Act 3 of Wagners opera Die Walkure(The Valkyrie) Where a Norse demigod lights a protective circle of fire around Wotans beloved Brunnhilde.

To things like the Prodigy and "Firestarter.

Love it or Hate It "The Prodigy"

The Beltane Fire Dance

Border Morris

Morris is a traditional English folk dance. Each area of the country has its own particular style and dress. The earliest written mention of it was in the 1400's.

The Beltane Border Morris in the video create a lot of their own dances.

They are not the only Morris to black their faces. This is believed to have started as a way to disguise themselves as any money they received for dancing was considered begging. That was illegal, and punished by severe beatings through the town.
