Owen D. Gillis was a well-known and skilled dance prompter from Inverness. He travelled the world as a dance prompter and came to Mabou in Nova Scotia for a festival of music and dance, which is where the recording featured on Minute of Listening was made. On the night this recording was made, he told the fiddle player, Kinnon Beaton, that he remembers calling dance steps to for his father’s playing too!
