Shadrack’s Delight – Recording

Written and called by Tony Parkes

Tony calls each of the dances in his Shadrack’s Delight book at least twice. We find that listening is more effective than reading when we’re trying to learn new calls. For this reason, the actual calls don’t appear in the book, but only on this tape. Music is taken from the F&W Records catalog, featuring the Canterbury Country Orchestra and the F&W String Band – a different tune for each dance (learn how to pick tunes!). This tape is mostly not danceable, though a few squares are called as complete dances to illustrate the use of “breaks” or chorus figures.
