Calling with a Live Band
I call with a number of local bands, and can arrange a full package of band and caller for you.
I can also call with a band of your choice, and can often turn up at short notice.
I’ve been calling for about 10 years. I do mostly weddings and other celebrations, although I have called at:
Folk festivals (Bampton, Dulverton)
IVFDF / ICBINI
Cardiff (RUFF Ceilidhs)
Exeter University International Ceilidhs
I will run workshops for absolute beginners, and have even run a wheelchair ceilidh (in conjunction with Exeter Mobility).
I have a bouncy, flamboyant style that dancers seem to love – it certainly gets them up and dancing.
I use a number of my own dances, which if the audience are regular folk dancers means they get to do something new and exciting. Whilst I specialise in beginners, I have some particularly interesting dances that old hands seem to love.
I am based in Exeter, but will travel to most places in Devon and often further afield.
