Choreographer: Sharon Butcher
"One of my earliest memories of my mom was watching her getting ready to go square-dancing. These are two sections of a five dance suite, inspired by my Appalachian roots, and all the potato farmers, railroad men, coal miners, barn dancers and the many colorful characters who blossomed on my family tree. My mom was the last of the generation that lived on the family homestead, connected to all these past generations. She passed this January. So this is dedicated to my mom, Mildred."
