Biographical / Historical

Red & Gwynn Warrick started square dancing in 1945. Red started calling and became a regular at his local club. In 1946 a club in Henderson hired Red to call. That was his first professional square dance job. In 1947 the club paid Red’s tuition to Herb Greggerson’s Caller’s School in Ruidoso, New Mexico; and that same year Red recorded an album on the Dude Recording label. Red was invited to call in almost every state and several Canadian provinces. Red organized three square dance bands, three exhibition groups, conducted a half-hour television show for three years, taught thousands of dancers and was responsible for assisting at least a dozen callers to begin their careers.
