Phil Jamison - Big Set


Phil Jamison - Big Set


Southern / Appalachian / Big sets


Phil Jamison calls at the Dare To Be Square weekend held November 18-20, 2011, at the John C. Campbell Folk School, Brasstown, NC. This southern Appalachian dance kicked off the Friday night session of the weekend. Phil relies here on just two of the many figures that can be incorporated into that style, "right hand across" and "roll the barrel." Another example of big set dancing from this event can be found here.

Musicians are Steve Hickman, fiddle and harmonica; Claudio Buchwald, fiddle; Jim Morrison, guitar; Sam Bartlett, banjo. There's a shot of the musicians starting at 3:44 in the video. The tune is "Jaybird Died of the Whooping Cough" (from John Ashby).
