Barn Dance

Like a Ceilidh Great Fun with live music but I do also  call to recorded music 





Like a Barn Dance but with more Scottish and Irish Dances and can still be in  a Barn



Live Music

Is best as the tempo and length of the dance can be adjusted to suit the dancers. It also creates a great atmosphere. Please read the Testimonials

I can provide everything you need for a successful barn dance or ceilidh in the Bath, Bristol, Wiltshire, Somerset and Gloucestershire area.

I can provide an evening of Irish music and song or a good Scottish ceilidh. I have performed at over 300 Weddings,and more recently at some civil partnerships.
