Darling Nellie Gray walkthrough - Tony Parkes


Ralph Page's usual ending dance was Darling Nellie Gray. Here, Tony Parkes teaches that traditional dance as well as a variation by Rod Linnell called "Atomic Nellie Gray"; Tony commented, "Back when 'atomic' was a good thing." This is the walkthrough; see separate video for samples of the dance itself.

Tony taught both versions for the final dance at his workshop session on New England Square Dances, recorded November 19, 2011, at the Dare To Be Square Weekend, John C. Campbell Folk School, Brasstown, NC. Co-sponsored by the Country Dance and Song Society (CDSS), the event brought together six experienced callers representing different styles of traditional and modern square dance with about 70 square dance enthusiasts.

Musicians for this workshop were Jim Morrison and Steve Hickman, fiddles; Claudio Buchwald, piano; Sam Bartlett, banjo.
