I enjoy calling to dancers of all abilities, from beginner to seasoned dancers, or a mixture of the two. I am always excited to work with a new band, or I am happy to find a band appropriate to the event. I have a wide repertoire including ceilidh favourites, traditional and newly written, as well as Playford and contra to slip into the mix where it’s appropriate.
Here’s a video of me calling contra with Steamchicken at Bromyard Folk Festival, in the Ceilidh House Saturday night:

I am a young caller with experience calling to beginner dancers, engaging new people and welcoming them to community. I am available for mixed evenings, Playford dances, and American evenings of contras and squares. I always aim to find some live music for any gig I do, though I am prepared to bring CDs if need be.
