To Hear Your Banjo Play - 1947with Pete Seeger and Margot Mayo's American Square Dance Group
Filmed in 1947 with Pete Seeger as the host, this show explores the banjo in particular, including plenty of attention to American traditional music and dance. Starting at 12:05, the film includes the Margot Mayo American Square Dance Group doing a southern Appalachian big set with Stu Jamieson as the caller. In this article, Jamieson discusses the technical aspects of making the film. Normally he would have called while dancing, but the engineers found that a consistent sound level could not be maintained that way.
