Mountain Dance Trail caller Bill Ohse, of Ripley, will lead the Aug. 8 square dance at Augusta Heritage Center in the dance pavilion.
Tyler Crawford and Ron Buchanan also will trade off calling. Music will be provided by Dave Bing, fiddler, with Old-Time Week staff.
"I just love the music," said Ohse, 74, who is the master artist of Augusta's Dance Week and is known for his on-the-beat timing, artful phrasing and rhyming patter. Ohse grew up square dancing and is a regular caller at the Henderson square dance. He has been a mainstay at the West Virginia Folk Festival for years and calls mostly Appalachian four couple sets. His smooth rhythmic calling can be found on Gandydancer's album "Cross Ties."
The square dance will kick off at 8 p.m. in the open air dance pavilion on Davis & Elkins College Campus. Admission is $6 for adults and $4 for seniors and students. Davis & Elkins College students and employees get in free with their college ID.
The dance pavilion is located behind the Hermanson Center.
All dances will be beginner friendly.
