Devised   by   Eddy   West   in   2004   for   the   many   friends   from   Kamo   and   Whangarei   SCD   clubs   who   have   helped   him   try out dances at Kamo. Eddy   recommends   the   recording   “The   Travelling   Dancers”   on   Kardinia   Capers   CD   by   David   South.   The   lead   tune   is The Bugle Call Two-step, which is then paired with Liberty Bell. Kamo   is   a   small   township,   north   of   Whangarei   near   the   base   of   Mount   Parakiore,   and   the   name   is   a   Māori   word meaning   "eyelash",   but   has   also   been   said   to   mean   "to   bubble   up",   referring   to   hot   springs   in   the   area.   Mount Parakiore   is   a   volcanic   dome   about   one   million   years   old,   and   part   of   the   Harbour   Fault   which   also   includes   Mount Hikurangi near Hikurangi, and Parahaki in Whangarei. Coal   mining   was   an   early   industry   in   the   area,   with   tunnelling   first   starting   in   1875,   but   it   was   not   practical   to carry   the   coal   over   the   unmetalled   roads   to   Whangarei   wharf   so   in   1882   a   short   railway   line   was   completed between   Kamo   and   Whangarei.   This   was   one   of   Northland's   first   railways   and   still   exists   as   part   of   the   North Auckland   Line.   The   worked-out   mine   closed   in   1955.   Limonite,   one   of   the   three   principal   ores   used   for   the production of iron, was also quarried at Kamo. The   town   was   known   for   its   hot   springs   in   the   early   20 th C,   when   the   iron-rich   water   was   promoted   as   a   health tonic, although several people died of suffocation in covered baths in the first two decades of the century.
