Rod Linnell - Maple Sugar Gal (clip)

Title

Rod Linnell - Maple Sugar Gal (clip)

Subject

Northern / Singing

Description

This clip includes once through the figure, once through the chorus (which comes after each figure), and the closing break, which mirrors the start of the dance.

The dance is described in detail in Square Dances from a Yankee Caller's Clipboard, by Rod Linnell and Louise Winston. The notes to that dance point out the distinction "between four ladies CHAIN across, which ends with each man turning a lady with the usual 'courtesy turn', and four ladies STAR across, in which the ladies walk out of the star into an immediate swing with the men. The latter provides a very smooth transition."

Released on the Rodeo label (Canada, RXP1), with music by The Maritime All Stars.
