Red Warrick - Heel and Toe (clip)

Title

Red Warrick - Heel and Toe (clip)

Subject

Transitional/Western 1950s

Description

Texas caller Red Warrick, on a rare recording on the Dude label, with music by Till's Square Dance Band. (See related materials here.)

The tune is Golden Slippers, but this recording provides an excellent example of calls that are not phrased to the tune. For a caller of traditional New England material, this would be heresy, but Warrick is comfortable in his delivery.

A search for "Warrick" on this site will bring up four video clips of Red Warrick calling for his demonstration team at a square dance convention. Among other things, he was known as the creator of the Jessy Polka Square.
