Subject

Description

The song was written by William Shakespeare Hays in 1875, and George Hodgson is the caller for the singing square, recorded January 16, 2004, at the Ralph Page Dance Legacy Weekend, Durham, NH. The band is "Wild Card": Terry Traub (Piano), Vince O'Donnell (Fiddle), Robin Kynoch (Whistle) and Jon Weinberg (Hammered Dulcimer).

from the syllabus of the 2004 RPDLW:
Four ladies form a right-hand star and turn it once around
Turn your partner by the left, go once around
Four gents you form a right-hand star and turn it once around
Turn partner by the left and your corner by the right
And partner by the left, and your swing corner girl
Promenade

Sequence: Intro; figure twice with ladies leading right-hand star; figure twice with gents leading right-hand star; ending. When the gents do the stars, the first left hand turn with the corner is very quick. George likes to use a grand square for his breaks.
