Lisa Brown, the director of the Meryton Assembly Dances, visited the newly opened Erie Canal Heritage Park in 2015, where she was struck by a desire to dance in the lock. A collaboration with Canal Society member Padraic Neville resulted in this video.
The music is from the CD "Promise of Spring" by Charlene Thomson. The musicians are Watson Abbey: Jeff Bronfeld - mandolin, Rob Sieger - banjo, and Curt Osgood - hammer dulcimer. They are joined by Charlene Thomson on piano.
Terry Glasspool, the choreographer, was inspired by an English Country Dance held in 2011 at the Erie Canal Museum in Syracuse, NY.
