Gerry Jones

I am usually found calling from the keyboard with the Liverpool Country Dance Band, but I am also the caller for my Fazakerley Folk-dance Club in north Liverpool on Monday mornings, with recorded music. I am sometimes called on to call with another band, or with my recorded music and PA systems.

Although my repertoire is mainly from the English tradition - and the "ceilidh" end thereof - I also have long experience in the Irish and Scottish ceilidh traditions, and so I am able to Call all the most popular Irish and Scottish ceilidh dances.

Also, my regular attendance at the Europeade Festival has given me insights into the folk-dancing of western Europe, which means that I can often do some minimal calling in French, Spanish, Italian & German.

So although I do not fit any regular definition of an English folk-dance Caller, I could well be just the caller you need.
