Climbing Up the Golden Stairs - Bob Livingston
Bob Livingston, caller, with the Falltown String Band: Jack Arensmeyer, acoustic guitar and mandolin; Jason Burbank, keyboard, fiddle; Jack Nelson, bass; Champ Dickinson, electric guitar, and Linwood Clark, drums. Recorded in Chesterfield, CT, November 16, 2013.
Here done as a circle mixer, the dance is often done as a four-couple square. Some callers ask dancers to do each figure twice; e.g., an "allemande left" would be twice around. Given the mixed ages and experience level with this group of dancers, caller Bob Livingston did not insist on that particular variation.
Another video of Livingston calling this dance on a different night is available here.
