About Dan

Ceilidh Caller with humour!
Ceilidh caller
Birmingham
Verified profile

Dan has worked as the resident caller for the Burdock Band for over 10 years. His repertoire of dances is global, drawing on any tradition where fun is key and getting it wrong doesn't matter. "We've danced at the smallest venue - someone's front room - to the largest - Iceland's big family bash, so the aim is always the same: to get your guests mingling together up on their feet having fun". He also works with other bands and does solo performances using digital playlists, so it's worth asking him if he's available. Dan also runs Barn Dance Fitness in South Birmingham: ", an enjoyable, social way to get fit together".

Fantastic band for a wedding. We booked them recently for a November 2019 wedding and everyone commented on how much fun they had. The band sounded great, were really enthusiastic and very easy to get on with. They even went as far as to prepare a dance based on a song from the Lord of the Rings on request. Highly recommend for a really enjoyable evening of music and dancing :)

Everything we wanted This band and ceilidh was absolutely brilliant. All of our guests said how much they enjoyed the dancing. The caller was absolutely brilliant, loud, funny and direct and didn’t ever get frustrated. We had ours outside on a perfect day and the burdock band made our day 🤩
