Cogs and Wheels are a ladies side who perform in a Cotswold style. They’ll be at the Swanage Folk Festival 2022 in their Dartmoor inspired colours – brown skirts and different coloured blouses in moorland hues.
They formed in 1995 and take their inspiration from Finch Foundry in Sticklepath and the surrounding Dartmoor landscape. Their costumes reflect the hues of the moor and their Beldames style of dancing is quite distinctive.
They perform a wide variety of dances from several traditions— mostly Cotswold, with some Border and some their own.
