The Fire-on-the-Mountain Cloggers
at the Texas Folklife Festival

As we do each year, the Fire on the Mountain Cloggers strive to promote the true spirit of the Texas Folklife Festival by combining the talents of various groups.  Perhaps the hit of the one of our shows was the combination of The Ledbetters band, the San Antonio Pipes and Drums, the Fire on the Mountain Cloggers, and numerous wannabe cloggers from the audience performing the traditional Texas dance favorite, Cotton Eyed Joe. 


The Festival is a time for sharing our cultural heritage.  Can you count to three with your feet?  Can you make music without any musical instruments?  Many of the stages found audience members joining Fire on the Mountain in “performing” some basic clogging steps, some old time hambone techniques, and a little bit of fancy twirling.


For Fire on the Mountain the final show was a fitting ending for a joyous and captivating fun filled time.  We look forward to repeating this celebration of life next year.
