Welcome to the Northwest Folklife Festival 2018 schedule!

Introduction to Appalachian Clog Dance

The Eclectic Cloggers is a Seattle dance group that performs a high-energy style of traditional Appalachian step dancing. This percussive dance form comes from the eastern mountain region of the United States, where it began as a mix of Irish, Scottish, and English step dances with African and Native American influences. For this show, the cloggers will be kicking up their heels to the lively music of the Old-time band, Moonshine and Turpentine.
