Old time music and the Blues and most of the instrumental folk music of the Southeast(most of the rest of this planet)comes from music for people to dance to. A rich heritage of dance came to this country from both Africa and Europe, and once here, folks combined the many strains of music and created a lot of their own. The last stages of this tradition were caught by Mike Seeger in making this wonderful film. It belongs in every home.

In it you can see a grizzled old white mountaineer from North Carolina, doing an animal dance on his front porch, the kind of dance that friends of mine have videotaped folks doing in Mali. My favorite here is the black buck dancing done by North Carolinians, especially the great performance of a young Algia Mae Hinton playing Piedmont guitar with the guitar over her shoulder while she buck danced.

Of course, given Mike's fine eye and finer mind, there is much more than entertainment here. We are introduced people who tell their stories of old time dance and music in their lives. We are told the history. We meet people and times, not just see dancing. You need to get the companion book of the same name which includes more explanations and even diagrams of the dancing.

As a player of guitar, banjo, and awful fiddle in old time music and as a musicologist who writes about the evolution of the music, the knowledge recorded in this DVD and book are simply irreplacable. This DVD belongs in every home

I am in love with the dancers on this video, and very thankful for the kind attention of Mike Seeger and Ruth Pershing put into educating the viewer. While the film quality is very amateurish at best, and often it's hard to hear precisely what is being sung or said, the dancing styles are clear. They are the star of the show, and so are these wonderful artists. I'm very glad to have found this DVD, and proud of what American culture has to offer. Long live Talking Feet!

This is a great collection of folk dance styles from different parts of Appalachia. The interviews, footage and scenery will bring you right up to the mountains. The subtle artistry is compelling. I couldn't turn it off!

This is a wonderful documentary. There is also an annotated book that goes along with it (I mean that it is a companion piece to the movie. You have to buy it separately. It doesn't come with the DVD.).
