Ashokan Western & Swing Weeks 1985-1987

Ashokan Dance Camp is located near Woodstock, NY. I was on staff 1985-86, teaching Western Swing Dancing and Texas Two-Step. What a great time. I got to meet Tiny Moore, who played with Bob Wills & the Texas Playboys. And now through the miracle of modern science, you will get to see and hear him,┬áJay Ungar, Molly Mason, Rich Lieberson, Matt Glaser, Junior Daugherty, Sean Blackburn, The Dixie Doughboys, and countless others. The recording quality may not be great, but the music is…enjoy.
