Dance to the Music and Listen to the Calls: The Square Dances and Calling of Jerry Goodwin

Description

Larry Edelman produced this video in 1987 while studying square dance calling with Jerry Goodwin. The apprenticeship was supported by a grant from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Council on the Arts. Recorded at the Prosperity Fire Hall in western Pennsylvania the video features Jerry Goodwin calling with the Mountain Express (Chuck Monticello, fiddle; Joe Frye, guitar; Bob Hill, piano; and Dodie Goodwin, bass).

The attached document, "Dancing in Prosperity: The Square Dances of Jerry Goodwin," was created by Larry Edelman in 1980 and updated in October of 2013; it provides a detailed description of Jerry Goodwin's dances.
