Description

At the Dare To Be Square dance weekend, Bob Dalsemer led a workshop on "Dances of Maryland Line," a small town in northern Maryland that he visited often in the 1970s. Attentive viewers will note the distinctive style of promenade, a one-step around the square that was typical of Maryland Line dances.

This session was recorded on November 19, 2011, at the John C. Campbell Folk School, Brasstown, NC, with additional support provided by Country Dance and Song Society. (Among other things, CDSS paid for the videography, by John-Michael Seng-Wheeler.)

Musicians for this session were: Larry Edelman and Steve Hickman, fiddles; Jim Morrison, guitar; Claudio Buchwald, piano; Sam Bartlett, banjo, joined on some numbers by Phil Jamison on banjo. The tune is "When the Work's All Done This Fall."

The event brought together six well-known callers and 70 square dance enthusiasts to explore many different styles of squares, including both traditional and modern.
