The team was originally formed in 1981 by students of the legendary clog dancer and music hall entertainer Sam Sherry. The purpose of their formation was a one off performance at the National Gathering at Cecil Sharp House of the bargees social dance taught to them by Bill Gibbons. They continue to perform traditional clog routines based on the steps of Sam Sherry and other famous clog dancers from the north of England.
