The Lost Clog
Time & Location
About the Event
The Lost Clog perform the songs their parents and grandparents brought from Lithuania in post war waves of migration. The Clogs’ contemporary interpretations breathe new life into wonderful old songs and dances. They sing songs of harvest, love, talking horses, ruined rue gardens, amorous toads, drunken godesses, drunken sparrows and drunks.
On Sunday June 14 at 3:30pm, The Lost Clogs will bring their music to your living room as part of the 2020 Leaps and Bounds Music Festival. Preceding their show at 3:00pm, Stepas Levickis will lead a free singing workshop in which he will rope you in to sing you a song or two from their hilarious repertoire.

About The Lost Clog: The lovechild of VCA graduate Stepas Vytautas Levickis and fellow stalwart of the Melbourne-Lithuanian community, Gabrielle Staugaitytė-Zdanienė, The Lost Clog (Pamesta Klumpė) brings together ten of Melbourne’s least renowned singers to breathe new life into archaic Lithuanian songs of harvest, love, talking horses, ruined rue gardens, amorous toads, drunken goddesses, drunken mosquitoes, drunken sparrows and drunks. Formed in 2010, the ensemble of second-generation Lithuanian-Australians have catapulted from total obscurity to become Melbourne’s second-favourite a cappella-polyphonic-Lithuanian-folk ensemble, appearing on on ABC’s Spicks and Specks, winning the fiercely contested Innovation in Culturally Diverse Practice Award at the 2011 Melbourne Fringe Festival and placing 3rd in the 2015 Saulės Žiedas International Folkloric Festival and Contest, Lithuania, with group leader Stepas taking gold in the solo category. The Lost Clog have spread their love of village traditions, lush harmonies, pagan forests and root vegetables at the Woodford Folk Festival and numerous multi-cultural festivals and arts events around Victoria and Lithuania.
Joining Stepas and Gabrielle are cabbage enthusiast Jievutė Marija Brovedanaitė, amber aficionado Audra Daiva Šimkutė, Euro-pop beekeeper Jonukas Algirdukas Lipšiukas, sub-zero multi-instrumentalist Aleksas Simonas Brovedani, extreme bilinguist Daktaras Vytautas Stasys Henrikas Antanaitis Pirmasis, pagan apothecary Lina Ona Didzytė-Skimbirauskiėnė, Baltic werewolf sympathiser Jazmina Cininaitė-Lipšiėnė and post-Soviet aerobics instructress Danielle Brown.
