Description

Larry Edelman leads the walkthrough and calls the figures at the Dare To Be Square weekend held November 18-20, 2011, at the John C. Campbell Folk School, Brasstown, NC.

The trio mixer Silly Threesome was devised by English folk dance leaders Kenneth and Sibyl Clark and published by the English Folk Dance and Song Society in Community Dances Manual 5 (1957).

Musicians are Steve Hickman, fiddle, harmonica, and mouth music; Jim Morrison, guitar; Claudio Buchwald, piano; Sam Bartlett, banjo. Shots of the musicians start at 2:10 in the video. The tune is "Girl with the Blue Dress On."

The weekend was sponsored by the Folk School and by Country Dance and Song Society. It brought six well-known callers and 70 square dance enthusiasts together to explore many different styles of squares, including both traditional and modern.
