Les Gotcher - Forward Eight and Chain Around (clip)


Transitional/Western 1950s


The main figure of this dance involves ladies chaining across and along a line, mixed in with grand chains. Unlike the visiting couple pattern of I'll Swing Yours, for example, in which just one couple initiates the action, here Les Gotcher has both head couples and then both side couples moving at the same time. The opening and middle break is the Triple Allemande. The tune is Haste to the Wedding, a jig.

Aside from having an early modern call set to a jig rather than a hoedown, this is an unusual MacGregor recording; this label foused more on singing calls than patter.
