Oh Johnny - Lester Bradley



In modern square dance programs, squares are often intermingled with round dances. Similarly, traditional dance programs often involve a variety of dances other than squares—waltz, polka, schottische, mixers, novelty dances are a few examples.

This is a circle mixer. Lester Bradley (caller and guitar) with Paul Amey, fiddle, joined by other musicians: Bob Reed, banjo; David Colburn, guitar; George Randall, 12 string guitar, spoons; Mike Hebb, fiddle; Sylvia Miskoe, accordion; Sue Hunt, accordion; John Derby, mandolin; Samantha Amey, bass; Lynn Bradley Clogston, piano

Unlike the more common four couple square setting for Oh Johnny, Lester Bradley calls a big circle version in which couples change partners each time through the dance. A similar mixer version, called by Connecticut caller Bob Livingston, is available here.
