A barn dance is any kind of dance held in a barn, but usually involves traditional or folk music with traditional dancing. It is a type of dance, originating in America and popular in Britain in the late 19th century and early 20th, derived from Schottische. Folk dancing events are often also referred to as "barn dances", despite being held in locations other than barns.

Louis Keppard - Bucket's Got a Hole In It 1957 "The Music of New Orleans" vol. IV
This is a vocal imitation of a band playing in the style of about 1910. Already there are solos and some emphasis on individuality. Louis Keppard is the older brother of the great Freddie Keppard, and this wonderfully musical vocal version of the tune is in the style of the band that Freddie and Louis played in together when they were both young men. Louis finishes with Freddie's famous horse imitation. The tune is usually credited to a guitar player named Lorenzo Stall or Star who sang it with the wine spilling out of the corners of his mouth. It has been a New Orleans standard since the days of Bolden's band.
In this early version there are two alternating strains, the first, a chorus with words; the second, an instrumental refrain. Keppard hums seven different versions of this refrain in the course of singing the song. The first refrain is an imitation of the entire band, the second of a duet between cornet and slide trombone,
the third, clarinet, the fourth, the entire band, the fifth, guitar; the sixth, bass; and the seventh, the entire band again•.
