All things Green Man & the traditional Jack-in-the-Green

Green Sedayne

 

 

 

COTGM member Sean Breadin, aka Sedayne, is a professional storyteller, singer of traditional ballads & folk songs and player of diverse & ancient musical instruments. For this years Morpeth Northumbrian Gathering he went as a Green Man. The fantastic mask is based on a sinister supporter from a Chester Cathedral misericord.  His thinking is that a lot of these sort of GM types could well be depictions of medieval carnival masks, so he thought the best thing to do would be to make one (using such traditional mediaeval materials as Ikea packing cases, organic flour, water & toilet paper) to see how such a thing might work in reality. He wore it both in the procession & for a couple of storytelling sessions.
