Jim Mayo - Just Because

Title

Jim Mayo - Just Because

Subject

Modern Western / Mainstream

Description

Jim Mayo calls a series of hash figures at the Dare To Be Square weekend held November 18-20, 2011, at the John C. Campbell Folk School, Brasstown, NC. Unlike the more traditional figures associated with this dance, which might be reviewed in a walkthrough, dancers faced with Jim's modern style calling just needed to listen carefully and move!

Musicians are Steve Hickman and Claudio Buchwald, fiddles; Jim Morrison, guitar; Sam Bartlett, banjo.

The weekend was sponsored by the Folk School and by Country Dance and Song Society. It brought six well-known callers and 70 square dance enthusiasts together to explore many different styles of squares, including both traditional and modern. The documentation for the weekend includes these videotapes—nearly 100 by the time the whole series is uploaded—plus audio recordings and a syllabus.
