6/7/2015 – Frannie Marr calls while "Maivish" plays at Glen Echo, MD's Spanish Ballroom (2 of 2).

BAND: Maivish (http://www.maivish.com/)
● Adam Broome (guitar, jaw harp)
● Jaige Trudel (fiddle)
● Matt Olwell (flute and percussion)

Maivish draws inspiration from traditional sources, reinterpreting the old and contributing to the new with their hypnotic and scintillating melodies and grooves. At its core, the group is a collaboration between American fiddler Jaige Trudel and British born guitarist Adam Broome who have been performing together as a duo for over a decade. Maivish frequently includes Virginia native Matthew Olwell on flutes and percussion.

(0:00 - 4:33) "Banks of Loch Gowna" (Trad.)
(4:33 - END) "The Hermit Crab Jig" (Steve Jones)

DANCE: "Rollin' Outta Barstow" (Chris Page, improper)
[see full description at the bottom of this section]

CAMERA: Canon S120, 720p

REMARKS: The Spanish Ballroom is a superb dance venue. Built in 1933 and restored in 2003, the art deco style ballroom has a wonderful 7,700 SF sprung maple floor which can easily handle 6 lines of contradancers.

This was the first dance in the second half.

DANCE: Rollin' Outta Barstow (Chris Page, improper)
A1 – Neighbor Gypsy (8), Neighbor Swing (8)
A2 – 3/4 Hey with Ricochet (ML,PR,WL,NR,M ricochet) (12) [1]; Gents Roll Away Neighbor (4) [2]
B1 – Clockwise Mad Robin, Gents in front to start (4) [3], Gents Cross Set, passing right (4) [4], Partner Swing (8)
B2 – Ladies Chain (8), Star Left 1x (8)

[1] This first is a normal half hey. Then as men step back into the center, they ricochet while the women loop around, getting ready for the next figure. (If the men didn't ricochet, this would count as a 3/4 hey with 5 passes.)
Men ricochet: Men, the second time they reach the center, extend both hands to each other and push off each other, going backwards and to their right. At this point all are facing across, next to their neighbor, with man on the right, woman on the left.

[2] To help the transition into this, men should keep their hands out after they ricochet. As women loop around, they can catch the man's left hand in their right hand. The momentum of the hey should flow directly into the roll away.

[3] A mad robin is a sideways do-si-do, men starting in front of their neighbor.
This mad robin is meant to be done quickly, in six steps. The other two steps are used up by men crossing the set.

[4] Men quickly go straight across the set. It's a bonus if women continue the flow of the mad robin by shifting slightly to their left, but that detail's likely not worth teaching.
