John Bill Allen - Big set, Berea, 1975

Description

Note: The first minute of the video has garbled sound, but then it clears up.

Notes from John Ramsay: Documentary of local square dancing in Berea, Kentucky circa 1975. The caller, John Bill Allen, had been a member of the College's original Folk Club. He graduated in 1936. The dancers included quite a few Berea College students, some faculty, and a fair number of local citizens. Various styles among the dancers will be noticed but the calling style and the sequence of calls is what Mr. Allen used as a young man before World War II influenced popular dances.
