Description

Phil Jamison led a workshop session on square dances from the southern Appalachians, focusing on dances from different communities in that region. He described this figure as an ending figure that can come at the end of a big circle dance. A separate video describes the moves in more detail.

This was recorded at Dare To Be Square on November 19, 2011, at the John C. Campbell Folk School, Brasstown, NC. Musicians for this session were Claudio Buchwald and Steve Hickman, fiddles; Jim Morrison, guitar; and Sam Bartlett, banjo. The tune is "Fire on the Mountain"

See the notes elsewhere comparing this dance with La Boulangère, the only dance mentioned by name by Jane Austen.
