Description

Live recording made by Dudley Laufman (1955-57) at Orange Hall, Brookline, Massachusetts. Released on cassette tape as "Traditional and Ethnic Square Dance Music of New England — 1955-1957."

Dudley writes: "The dance in Orange Hall, Brookline, Mass. was attended by Cape Bretoners living and working in Greater Boston. Joe Martin and Dan MacEarchern were the prompters and floor managers. The band had two fiddles, piano, drum and sax. Foxtrots, waltzes, polkas and square dances, the same square dances, were the order of the night."
