David Park Williams - Climbing Up the Golden Stairs (clip)


Northern / Singing


From the CD set "Mostly Quadrilles," containing two CDs of called dances, 24 in all, and two CDs of just instrumental tracks, arranged by David Park Williams. Musicians are Bill J. Sparrow, fiddle; Elizabeth Olden, piano; Mark Williams, bass.

The song on which this dance is based was composed by Monroe H. Rosenfeld (1884). David Smukler, editor for the dance in the 1997 Syllabus for the Ralph Page Dance Legacy Weekend, adds: "And just in case you would like to know, the parody Climbing Up the White House Stairs was sung during the campaign for Grover Cleveland's first term as President, 1884."
