I've seen various pictures of you doing folk stuff on Facebook, Will, but I have to ask about the facepaint. What's up with that?

It's part of the traditional border morris kit. Why? No one really knows. It's not documented in anything relevant to the times when it's thought to have originated. It's thought to have been performed during winter though, when the farms weren't producing anything.

Just a couple of theories: 1, and most likely) It was illegal to perform on the streets as a way to beg for money, so a way of getting around that was to disguise their faces with mud, ash or burnt cork, avoiding being recognised and grassed up. 2, and perhaps a bit more fanciful) It was part of a kit designed to make the dancers look as different as possible as a way to scare off any evil spirits in the hope of a good crop for the farmland in the upcoming year.

However, it's just easier to say that it looks cool if anyone stops me in the street to ask.

Interestingly, the only people ever to take offence are white people. The experience of other border dancers I've spoken to have been that black people have only ever been fine with it or just curious. When Black Pig (the side I dance with) went over to America, they held a workshop for a few of our dances. One of the participants was black. When they went out to dance them, he actually "whited up" with white face paint.
If it sounds good, listen to it

And finally getting my feet wet in a bit of fresh Manx mountain stream, it was proper freezing cold.

You remind me of the blonde guitarist in Skeletonwitch. Admittedly the pics I googled don't look the same as I remember seeing him but hey...
