About The Group

You get the feeling that the Barn Dance had a free wheeling fun spin to it when you see and read about 'groups' like this one. They wrote that they 'answered' to the name of "Uncle Orrie's Village Limits". Uncle Orrie was a character played by Joe Rockhold. They were said to be 'skilled' musicians, but one could never quite prove it due to the comic routines that would break out on stage with them. It may be that their stage dress also had something to do with that as you can see.
