Stu Jamieson - The Old-Time Kentucky Running Set


Although the title speaks of Kentucky Running Set, this article deals with many different variations of the big circle or big set formation of Southern Appalachian mountain dancing. The author is Stu Jamieson, who was the caller in the film "To Hear Your Banjo Play" with Margot Mayo's American Square Dance Group. In it, he provides a detailed description of the dance, explaining scores of specific calls and patter used. Jamieson learned the dance from the group's early caller, Ralph Tieferteller.

An obituary and appreciation for Jamieson appeared in The Old-Time Herald.
