This is a thread in appreciation of dance callers, without whom barn dances and ceilidhs really wouldn't work at all. We (The Slippery Hill Boys) have worked with quite a few over the years, and they put a hell of a lot into making each event a real success. So who are the really good ones? I'll start the ball rolling with a top bloke from the North of England, a man with a great sense of humour and an irresistible approach to getting the reluctant or unwilling to dance their socks off; I give you Mr Ralph Smethurst!
(If you want to see who he is and what he looks like, check out Ralph here. )
