Description

Tony Parkes calls the final square at the Dare To Be Square weekend held November 18-20, 2011, at the John C. Campbell Folk School, Brasstown, NC. Musicians are Steve Hickman and Jim Morrison, fiddles; Claudio Buchwald, piano; Sam Bartlett, banjo.

This square was one of Ed Durlacher's signature dances in the late 1940s and early 1950s, and it is possible that he wrote it, although he never took credit for it. Tony learned it in the 1960s from the calling of Jon Lurie, Dick Kraus, and Ralph Page. The humorous patter toward the end of the first couple's turn is from Page; the patter in subsequent turns is by Tony.
