Fiddle 'n' Feet


Fiddle 'n' Feet are an Appalachian dance group, based in Shipley. Their style of dancing originates in the American Appalachian mountains. It's different from morris, in some ways more akin to Irish or Scottish dance. It involves an energetic tap dancing style, on a board that allows the taps to be heard, accompanied by lively fiddle music. It seems to get everyone around tapping their feet too.

  5. Interesting to see Appalachian dancing over there. Their dress is much simpler than other dance groups, probably reflecting the simpler American styles.

  6. Clogging and/or flat footing are what I've heard this dance style called.
