   Press for music

The performance

As a "precision clog" group we synchronise percussive step accompaniment with music.

Dances are exuberant so our audiences are assured of a high energy performance which will leave them elated and calling for more


Dancing at Llantarnam near Newport
The music  is mostly fast foot tapping Bluegrass or old-time string band tunes with fiddle and 5 string banjo. Nowadays we include contemporary music to offer a broader range to our audiences. Dancing to a bluegrass band
The dance originated in the Appalachian Mountains through many different influences. Those with workday boots danced in them whilst poorer performers danced in bare feet.

Today the dance is more stylised and cloggers wear leather shoes tapped at heel and toe.
