Green Grass Cloggers Will Put A Smile On Your Face With Old Time Appalachian Clogging Dance

Seeing old-time folk music performed live gives your soul something you can’t get any other way. The Green Grass Cloggers sure are proof of that, and seeing the joy with which they dance and perform the old-time Appalachian clogging dance is sure to put a smile on your face. Ten dancers took to the stage at the Appalachian State Old Time Fiddlers Convention and danced up a storm to the rollicking music provided by Strictly Strings.

It was great to see the dancers from different generations coming together to celebrate the traditional music they grew up with. They sure know how to put a few steps together as well and danced with impressive skill, lighting up the wooden stage with their clogging moves. Thanks to a well-placed mic, you can hear all the intricacies of the traditional percussive dance. You’ve got to hand it to the band as well, as they put together a mighty tight groove for the show.

The Green Grass Cloggers’ performance with Strictly Strings went down a treat online and quickly went viral on YouTube. The video attracted 6.2 million views on the platform. The performance was for the individual freestyle clogging exhibition at the Appalachian State Old Time Fiddlers Convention in Boone, North Carolina.

Fans online couldn’t get enough of the troupe, and added comments such as “I absolutely love this music and dance. I can’t keep my feet still or my face from smiling. It brings me so much joy” and “That was really fun to watch. We are tapping a primordial remembrance when we dance. It feels good for your soul.” It’s not the only clogging dance competition set to fiddle music that has gone viral, as the freestyle buck dance at the Tennessee Valley Fiddlers Convention was a hit online too.

Clogging, which is also known as buckdancing or flatfoot dancing, is a folk dance from the United States. The term clogging originated from square dancing acts who performed at the Asheville, North Carolina Mountain Dance and Folk Festival, which was first held in 1928.
One of the Green Grass Cloggers, identified by the username msblockhead33, gave some more background in the video description above, saying, “Clogging was created in the Appalachian Mountains and was influenced by styles of the Native Americans, Africans, Irish, Scottish and English. Originally, people danced without taps on wooden porches to create rhythms as musicians played old-time tunes.”
