Square Dance Calling - Jack Hayes


ONTARIO SQUARE DANCE AUDIO ARCHAEOLOGY - Our friend Murray Smith recently found an old cassette tape of legendary caller JACK HAYES in full flight, calling the dance "Four Ladies Chain". (A rarity, since Jack didn't like to be recorded) The audio is pretty rough but Jack's powerful rhythmic calling still comes through. As an added bonus the fiddler is almost certainly the great TOMMY McQUESTON, playing one of his signature tunes, "The Queen's Wedding". (His version of "Pride Of The Ball") I'm guessing this is the 1970s. I think Kate Murphy may be the piano player. The whole package has an amazing back-beat groove. Listen to via the Soundcloud link below.
