I have provided eight audio selections [in MP3 format]. Unfortunately I was not able to make recordings of the dances in Helvetia because the callers always called from the floor while dancing.
1. New Creek.
I have provided two selections: one with John Welch calling, the other with Harley Hogbin calling.
One selection with both Buck and James Carpenter calling. Buck starts the dance and James continues.
The two selections I present (Take A Little Peek and Butterfly Whirl) were recorded at Davis and Elkins College in Elkins, WV (May 11, 1978) at a workshop given by caller Mack Samples. Due to the length of the dances (about 10 minutes each), I have only provided the first half of each dance.
There are three selections. One is a "patter" call, visiting couple dance (Mow the Wheat) and two are singing calls (Marching Through Georgia) and Rattler).
For those who might be interested, I transfered the recordings from cassette to my iMac computer using a Roland UA-30 USB audio interface and created the RealAudio files with an audio editing and processing program called Peak LE.
