Looking online for an example of trad folk music and clog dancing for use at school. They're doing a Christmas production with some of the children doing the 12 days of Christmas with suitable music for each day:
3 French Hens - Can Can
5 Gold Rings - Chariots Of Fire
6 Geese A Laying - Dambusters theme
And I'd been asked by the teacher if I could find her something Eight Maids A Milking. Her exact words were - "A Clog dance, pattern dance, traditional folk music - like a Farmer Giles type thing"
You get the idea.
Type in "Clog Dance" to You Tube and five results down is Kerfuffle Clog Dance.
Well I watched and was intrigued enough to have a look at some more of their stuff. It's really, really good. Trad Folk Music, Clog dancing, Good beats worked in as well. And it looks like they'd be fantastic live - wonder if they're playing any folk festivals around here this coming summer?
Funny old thing this internet, creates links and trails where you'ld never dream of going before.
