The Fire on the Mountain Follies
and the Fire on the Mountain Cloggers®
Back in the day the Fire on the Mountain Cloggers would get together with TVA to raise funds for a number of worthy causes. Here is one example. The Fire on the Mountain Follies brought out the best of both adversaries. The dancers were on their toes, ears pricked to take in every beat. The Tennessee Valley Authority band was excellent. I guess we could call this competition a draw since TVA hit every lick and we never missed a step. The real winners were the individuals who packed the Blue Cactus Café to attend this event which featured the hot pickin’ of the award-winning TVA and the quick steppin’ of the Fire on the Mountain Cloggers. Although the concert was free, donations were accepted for the American Red Cross and their hurricane relief efforts. So attendees themselves benefited from the delicious food, great entertainment, and the opportunity to contribute to a worthy cause.
The Follies, also known as
the “Battle of Feet Against Frets,”
challenges the Fire on the Mountain Cloggers’
ability to perform intricate dance steps to the entertaining music of Hank Harrison and the Tennessee Valley
Authority. The concert is an opportunity for
the whole family to enjoy a fun atmosphere, friendly folks, and a great
location. Lots of good memories and good people.
