Mountain Music Show 8/30/11

This week's Mountain Music Show featured some recordings from the 1940s and 50s that were released in response to the boom in popularity for square, round, and contra dancing during that period. This theme was inspired by the Square Dances without Calls collection at the Internet Archive, and the tunes used were from that collection.

Duel in the Sun Orchestra - Pigtown Hoedown and Lamplighter
The Woodshed Four (Jack Hawes on banjo) - Hell Broke Loose in Georgia
Pancho Baird's Gitfiddlers - Dance Those Gals Around
