Product Notes

Dance traditions are passed down through the generations to celebrate important occasions and to provide diversion from everyday life. The delight and exhilaration inherent in community dancing comes from the music, the spirit of cooperation, and simple, repeated patterns of movement. In the 'Peel the Banana' (or 'casting off') pattern, pairs of dancers in two long lines walk towards the musicians; the head pair turns back to back and 'peels' the lines to the end of the set. This CD presents a popular sequence of dances from school residencies, family dances, and community celebrations (weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, family reunions, and good ol'-fashioned barn raisings). For most tracks, the calls are included the first two times through. Peter, Paul & George play throughout the northeastern United States at school residencies and traditional community dances. Peter Davis plays clarinet, guitar, piano, mandolin, and pennywhistle. George Wilson plays fiddle, banjo, bass, guitar, and percussive feet. Paul Rosenberg calls the dances and plays recorder.
