I am a folk dance caller based in Kent although I can travel anywhere to call at your dance. If you want live folk music, I work with several fantastic ceilidh bands or I can use my personal stock of recorded ceilidh tracks from some of the UK’s best loved and well known barn dance bands. Ceilidhs are great for weddings, parties, fundraisers and a whole range of other social shindigs where fun for all age groups is the name of the game. If your wanting a ceilidh at your wedding why not let me supply the disco afterwards too!.

My website includes some useful resources to help you plan and organise a successful folk dance event.

Have you ever wondered why barn dances are now called ceilidhs? Find out a little about the history of folk dance and the costs involved in running one.

If you are a complete beginner don’t forget to check out my ‘Top Tips’ section for help and advice about going to your first barn dance.

Good luck and I hope I can call at your dance soon!
