Calling for Ceilidhs

"Thanks to the musicians and caller (Louise) that came to play for us. They were absolutely fantastic and did a perfect job. The evening achieved exactly what we had hoped - all age fun with great music and good clear instruction so everybody felt able to get involved." (2022)

After years of calling barn dances in the US, I transitioned to calling ceilidhs when I moved to the UK in 2021.

Drawing on English, Irish, Scottish, and American traditions, I call accessible, entertaining dances for private functions and public ceilidhs, primarily with the Brighton Ceilidh Collective.
