Hart & Sole
North West Clog Morris as danced by Hart & Sole is flamboyant and full of sounds with the clashing of clogs on the pavement, the rhythm of the melodeons and the beating of the drums contributing to the excitment of the dancing. Each dance consists of 8 dancers, usually 4 men and 4 women wearing contrasting coloured kit. The dances are led by a caller who leads the dancers and musicians. Each dance usually has 2 or 3 tunes associated with it.
