Description

The dance was created by Ed Gilmore, who ran a hardware store in Yucaipa, CA, when he started his calling career. The dance was published in 1950 in Square Dancing: The Newer and Advanced Dances, by Bob Osgood and Jack Hoheisel. The dance spread from there, and the basic calls can be found in Al Brundage's little black book of square dance calls on the website of the Square Dance Foundation of New England. (See below)

Called by Carroll White, with music by the Ozark Hoedowners (Clyde Linzy, fiddle;Lunette Breazeale, piano, and Ham Yest, drums), part of "A Night at Sunny Hills," a record "for experienced square dancers" recorded in 1951.
