About Lou Maiuri
93 year old Lou Maiuri is West Virginia’s oldest professional old time square dance caller, an award-winning clogger, a world-renowned master flatfooter, a certified instructor and judge. He has been an ambassador for the Appalachian clogging and flatfoot styles, and old time dance and he has an awesome calling rhythm and vocabulary of calls and patter (phrases that add flavor to the calls).
About LP Kelly
LP Kelly has been teaching and calling traditional dances throughout the southern Appalachian mountains for over a decade. As one of the core organizers of the Blacksburg Square Dance (one of the longest-running traditional square dances in the country), he has had the opportunity both to learn from the old masters and to mentor younger callers. Kelly’s calling resume includes public engagements at the Blacksburg Square Dance, the Moss Art Center, Floydfest, the Floyd Country Store, the Southern in Charlottesville, the Durham Rowdy Square, NC Squares, the Hoppin’ John festival, the DC Square Dance, the Baltimore Mobtown Square Dance, as well as dozens of private events at weddings, parties, and late night fiddler’s conventions throughout the southern Appalachian mountains. His teaching style is concise and efficient; his calling style is musical and high-energy. Because if you’re having a good time, you’re doing it right!
