Ceilidhs and folk dance clubs

Ceilidh series

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:

Folk Dance Clubs

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.
