Bull Run Cloggers present ‘The Patriotic Rhythm of America’ June 30 at Mary Louise Jackson Amphitheater

The Bull Run Cloggers will perform a free show Saturday, June 30 at 7:30 p.m. at the Mary Louise Jackson Amphitheater at the Manassas Campus.

“The Patriotic Rhythm of America” will salute the United States through a performance highlighting patriotic tunes as well as routines that demonstrate the heritage of traditional Appalachian clogging.

The Manassas-based group performs more than 20 shows each year at craft shows, festivals, fairs, civic functions, celebrations, and more. Although clogging was traditionally done to bluegrass music, the Bull Run Cloggers dance to modern country, Celtic, top 40, swing and bluegrass. The group performs a variety of styles in their routines, including traditional Appalachian clogging, modern clogging, Irish and Canadian step-dancing, and swing.

The performance is part of the Second Annual Summer Evenings under the Stars series, funded by a grant from the NVCC Educational Foundation and sponsored by NOVEC. Upcoming shows include the Old Bridge Chamber Orchestra String Quartet on July 14 and Prince William

Community Band on July 28.

All attendees may park for free next to the amphitheater. For weather-related cancellations, call 703.530.8298.
