Climbing Up the Golden Stairs - Bob Livingston


Climbing Up the Golden Stairs - Bob Livingston


Northern / Singing


Bob Livingston, caller, with the Falltown String Band: Jack Arensmeyer, acoustic guitar and mandolin; Jason Burbank, keyboard, fiddle; Jack Nelson, bass; Champ Dickinson, electric guitar, and Linwood Clark, drums. Recorded in Chesterfield, CT, November 16, 2013.

Here done as a circle mixer, the dance is often done as a four-couple square. Some callers ask dancers to do each figure twice; e.g., an "allemande left" would be twice around. Given the mixed ages and experience level with this group of dancers, caller Bob Livingston did not insist on that particular variation.
