Description

Phil Jamison led a workshop session on square dances from the southern Appalachians, focusing on dances from different communities in that region. There is a flourishing square dance tradition in Glenville, WV, and Phil encouraged dancers to experience their big dance festival in June of each year. This dance is typical of that style.

A search on "Glenville" on this site will bring up additional footage recorded in the 1970s of Glenville dancers.

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 "Billy Wilson."
