Title

Nellie Bly - George Hodgson

Description

Veteran dance caller George Hodgson leads the classic singing square in this 2004 appearance at the Ralph Page Dance Legacy Weekend. Dancers at that event over the years became familiar with George's version of the dance-- on the chorus, when George sings "Hi Nellie," the dancers respond with an enthusiastic "Hi, George!"

Music by Wild Card: Terry Traub (Piano), Vince O'Donnell (Fiddle), Robin Kynoch (Whistle) and Jon Weinberg (Hammered Dulcimer)

A video clip of the same dance being caller by Ralph Sweet is available here.

This website contains several other examples of this popular singing square.
