British Isles, Irish & North American
Traditional Clog & Step Dancing

Reading Cloggies' Festivals

Performers Shows, Workshop Showcases, & Lectures

The objectives of filming these performances were many. The main ones were:

To record the highlights of each Festival, i.e. the varied performances by specially invited accomplished guests: groups or solo dancers; to record the vast differrences between the many clog and step dance traditions of the British Isles and other parts of the world; to record the dances, routines and styles of material taught at each year's workshops; the lecture by a specially invited guest of long standing accomplishment.
To raise money for the so-called Reading Cloggies Film Fund in order to "further research, document and record fast disappearing step and clog dance traditions."

All performances can also be searched for and watched for free at the DVRA:

The Digital Video Research Archive of Morris, Sword, and Clog Dancing at Boston University - English and American Performances 1975 - present.
The Digital Video Research Archive (DVRA) is a research initiative built on the work of Professor Anthony G. Barrand and Francisco J. Ricardo, Ph.D. (UNI '99) at Boston University, Mass.; this is basically a streaming service for which you will need RealPlayer.
Thanks to Tony Barrand for spending so much time uploading and documenting the clips on his DVRA database; also for correcting the order and details of the below lists.
Video or DVD (PAL or NTSC) versions of the Festival recordings may still be available; all enquires to:

Music is performed by Keith Holloway (melodeon) and Charles Spicer (oboe).

9. Ednie Wilson's set of seven slip jig steps devised to Northumbrian triple jig time, is the result of a project which was begun ten years ago and came to fruition two years ago. Based on the works of jazz poets, it translates the rhythm of the words so as to mimic jazz poetry. Accompanied by Chris Metherell - melodeon.

11. Pat Tracey shows us an Old Lancashire Heel and Toe dance taught by her grandfather to her mother, who in turn passed it on to her. She is accompanied by Paul Hudson.

12. Ira Bernstein is regarded as one of the most versatile and accomplished performers of percussive step dancing in America and, in particular, as one of the foremost southern-Appalachian-style flat-footers in the world. His repertoire is a wide array of dances that all share a common thread: the production of rhythmic, percussive sounds: he refers to his art as Ten Toe Percussion. Concerts of Ten Toe Percussion include an eclectic mix of rhythm tap dancing, Appalachian flatfooting, English clogging, Irish step dancing, Canadian step dancing and South African boot dancing. Today, Ira will be putting together a 15 minutes performance especially for the day. He will be accompanied by his own musician, Trevor Stuart, who is regarded as one of the top, young, traditional fiddlers in America.
