We're Boggart's Breakfast - the Sheffield based mixed gender border morris team. We dance all over the UK, in fact you may have seen us already. If not here's a little taster of who we are.

 

We’re in the process of making our very first EP full of all our favourite tracks. This has been a long running dream project for the team, and with our 15th birthday last year it was finally decided to put the project in action. 

As a team we work incredibly hard on our music. We work to fuse our sound with the dances through careful arrangements, making the dances a full team performance. It’s been a long journey. Our band is one of the largest in British Morris and it takes a lot of effort to maintain the standards that we demand of ourselves. We’re really proud of the sound that we produce and we believe that we have one of the best Morris bands you will find performing in the country.

Most of the hard work is done now. We’ve picked out our favourite tunes and we’ve taken a lot of time arranging them especially for the EP. We’re almost there with our rehearsals, we have a studio lined up for recording, designs are in preparation for the cover and our last hurdle is funding. We need your help to reach our goal and our dream of a Boggart's Breakfast EP.

Members of the Boggart's band participating in the EP consist of these experienced musicians:

  • Bob - Melodeon
  • Jen - Melodeon
  • Val - Melodeon
  • Catie - Melodeon
  • Andrew - Piano Accordion
  • Izzy - Fiddle
  • Daisy - Whistle
  • Nigel - Drum
  • Kate - Drum
  • Alec - Drum
  • Sue - Drum
  • Kate T - Tambourine
  • Jane - Tambourine
  • John - Djembe
  • Irene - Lagerphone

And of course the 'Boggart for a Day Bundle' backer who we'll figure out a simple arrangement if musically talented or the backer can become the Boggart Gong master! 

(Artwork TBC)

The EP will consist of 7 of our favourite tunes split across 5 tracks with a spoken word intro by our infamous announcer Alec Boggart.

The tracks will consist of:

  • 1. Introduction by Alec Boggart
  • 2. Hell's Bells (Peacock Feather)
  • 3. Happy Birthday Gogs (Italian Rant) and Bluejay (The Carpathian Tune)
  • 4. Hanter Dro (Nothing Hill)
  • 5. Tea Dance (Squeamish) and Twiglet (Theme Vannetaise)
  • 6. Higger Tor (La Sansonnette)

The EP will be designed by one of our resident designer Boggarts and will be supplied in the form of a luxurious digipack.

What is a digipack/digipak?

If you haven't come across the term before it is simply a type of packaging for CDs, made from cardboard with an internal plastic holder for discs. It is less vulnerable to cracking than standard full plastic CD jewel cases. 

 

The costs for recording and producing an EP are quite large. Here is a breakdown of the £1,200 goal. Boggarts will be providing the rest of the funding for the pressings.

  • Recording £300 - £400
  • Mixing £300 - £400
  • Mastering £150 - £200
  • The rest will go towards CD pressing for EPs to cover our Kickstarter backers and extra stock. All additional costs will be paid out of our team funds.

 Designs on all rewards are subject to change. We will keep you informed of the progress via updates.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

There are always risks involved in producing any EP, however we have practiced these tunes for months prior to this Kickstarter, and have much experience in public performances which should mean our time in the recording studio goes smoothly. Many of our band members have previous experience recording albums with other bands.

We want our project to be as accessible as possible and our rewards reflect this, which means we will need a lot of backers to make our dream a reality. We're excited about this project and with your help we can make it happen!
