A Re-Examination of Cadgers' Caper

        Here is a new version of "Cadgers' Caper" which replaces the two original Bs with just one.  I am offering this shorter dance as an alternative to, rather than a replacement for, the original dance.  I like it a little better than the original, but I am willing to let the folk process decided if one should dominate the other.  The Old Friends recording is for the shorter version of the dance (one B music).

Duple Minor Longways Improper
Historical English Style


Lead away with neighbor; lead back, pass through, and turn over right shoulder into . . .
ON TO NEXT COUPLE. With your current couple, right hands across halfway around, and then, with the next (new) couple, left hands across once around.
