Stepling is a unique band blurring the boundaries between music and dance with an original blend of tunes, step & clog dance, and song inspired by English traditions. Their debut album Leap was released in 2018.
“Musically magical … totally better than the sum of the parts – though the parts are exceptionally good in their own right.” (Sue Coe).
Stepling’s richly varied performances combine traditional and new material – from high energy competition clog to carefully crafted arrangements, many with foot percussion. They have performed at many UK folk festivals including Sidmouth, Whitby, Shepley, Broadstairs and Priddy.
Stepling features fiddle and vocals from Deb Chalmers (Folk Dance Remixed, Laurel Swift’s ‘Travelling with Thomas’), guitar from Adrian Lever (Alma, James Patrick Gavin), percussion from Jo May (Against the Grain, Token Women) and percussive dance from champion clog dancer Toby Bennett.
