Barn Dance and Ceilidh

I play percussion and tin whistle with The Bang On The Wall Band. I also work as a dance caller for barn dances and ceilidhs, usually with other bands, but sometimes with Bang On The Wall.

I remember doing country dancing at junior school, and before really getting involved in the folk scene had been to an occasional wedding where there was a barn dance. I really got into dancing at ceilidhs though after becoming involved in Morris dancing, and attending dance weekends and folk festivals where they often have a ceilidh in the evening.
