This English country dance "Set for Spring" was written by Joseph Pimentel of Washington DC. The tune of the same name is by Dave Wiesler of Newark DE. Both were debuted at and celebrate the Set for Spring weekend of English country dance in Houston TX in March 2015.
The band Goldcrest (Daron Douglas on fiddle, Paul Oorts, and Dave Wiesler on piano) are playing. Joseph Pimentel was calling, and took this video from the stage. Attendees had a chance to see and approve of it before making it public.
The Set for Spring weekend moves each year among the great dance communities of Austin, Dallas, Houston, and Oklahoma City. Early spring in Teklahoma coincides with wildflowers blooming -- most notably Texas bluebonnets -- and also when dance friends further north most appreciate an escape from winter.
The dance is longways duple minor, with USA (Up a double, Siding, Arming) figures in the As alternating each time through. This clip begins some ways into the dance, starting with Arming.
