Southern / Ozark & Midwest

Description

Cabool, Missouri: Ozark square dance footage recorded by Gordon McCann and shared with the Square Dance History Project. The fiddler is Bob Holt, recipient of the National Heritage Fellowship in 1999. He is playing at a tempo of about 142 beats per minute.

Traditional dancers here do not follow one caller at the microphone; instead, each set has its own caller, one of the dancers. In this clip, you can see different squares doing different figures to the same tune. You get a good look at one set's caller starting about 1:23.
