Gene Gowing - Wedding Quadrille (clip)

Subject

Northern / Prompt & Patter

Description

This short clip includes just one time through the figure. The tune is Haste to the Wedding. Gowing does each couple in turn, then two head couples, two side couples, and finally all couples going at the same time. This is the same pattern used in many singing squares such as Solomon Levi or Nellie Bly.

Gowing was a contemporary of Ralph Page, and for several years the two men led Monadnock Folkways, a summer school for dancing held in Peterborough, New Hampshire.
