Tony Parkes - Odd Couple Promenade


Tony Parkes - Odd Couple Promenade


Northern / Prompt & Patter


Tony Parkes calls 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. The tune is "Road to Boston."

Ralph Page recorded this figure, using the same tune, in 1951 for Michael Herman's Folk Dancer label. Although Tony danced to Ralph's live calling in the 1960s and learned much of Ralph's repertoire that way, he learned this dance from the recording. The figure is not entirely original with Ralph; similar dances have been collected outside New England, some under the title "Six Allemande".

Recorded 19 November 2011 by John-Michael Seng-Wheeler and David Millstone
