Tony Parkes - The Rout (Brasstown, NC)


Northern / Prompt & Patter


Tony Parkes, caller. This clip includes a walkthrough. Recorded at Dare To Be Square, Brasstown, NC, November 19, 2011. Musicians for this session were Steve Hickman and Jim Morrison, fiddles; Claudio Buchwald, piano; and Sam Bartlett, banjo. The tune is "Glise de Sherbrooke."

The heart of this dance (chain across and in line) appears in quadrille call books of the late 19th century, although the "circle to a line" method of setting up the lines of four appears to be of more recent origin. Tony learned the dance, including the variations, from Ralph Page in the 1960s.
