The Mossyback Morris Men performed Jan. 5 at the Everett Public Library, adding some color and music to the dark days of winter.
The troupe performs a ritual British Dance called The Morris, which celebrates the Earth and all its seasons. The Morris is a centuries-old mix of street theater and dance and the Mossybacks have been dancing it around the Puget Sound region since 1980.
