Step Clog Challenge Stamps Into Cardiff

One of Cardiff’s trendiest pubs could help fire the rise of a furiously fast Welsh step clog tradition.

The Owain Glyndwr, St. John’s Street, is now home to Cobblers Awl, who perform a tradition originating from working class labourers.

Cobblers Awl member, Mike Greenwood, sees its survival kept within folk dance families, however the modern location could stir attention from young punters, with the side dazzling fans at Heath Hospital’s Ruff Ceilidh on 15 November.

Mike said, “The ‘fuddy duddy’ tag is a myth- there’s a lot of fun to be had. It feels good to be a part of something that’s survived and evolved over the years.

“Cobblers Awl is dedicated to keeping step clog dances alive, and we’d love to hear from anyone who feels up to the challenge.”
