This footage is from an Open House (March 12, 2010) in Tunbridge, Vermont, sponsored by the Ed Larkin Dancers. As a performance group, the Larkin dancers keep alive a central Vermont dance tradition, and at their public dances, such as this one, they stick to their traditional repertoire. Money Musk as danced here is the older 32-bar form of the dance, rather than the 24-bar version that was adopted in New Hampshire late in the 19th century and then spread to other locations in part by the calling of Ralph Page.
The prompter is Adam Boyce; musicians are 91-year-old Harold "Chuck" Luce, who has been fiddling with the Larkin Dancers since the late 1930s, joined on piano by his daughter, Donna Weston, and by fiddle apprentice Bonnie Tucker.
