Stonesfield Folk Dance

Folk Dancing in Oxfordshire

 

STONESFIELD 49th Folk Dance Weekend - Friday 8th October to Sunday 10th October 2021.

We are very pleased to announce our callers for the weekend are TREVOR MONSON & BERNIE CULKIN who are both very well known nationally and much sought after for Festivals & prestigious dances held nationwide. We are equally pleased & lucky to have the wonderful "STRADIVARIOUS " as musicians this year. Stradivarious are well regarded and keenly sought to play at Folk Festivals up and down the Country.

TREVOR MONSON is a very experienced workshop leader and dance caller in the full range of English Folk Dance. Trevor is also likely to be found calling at other Folk Dance Weekends and prestigious dances. Trevor is known for his clarity of calling, his enthusiasm, and helping newcomers discover the joy of dancing. Trevor has written many well known dances and his recent CD has been much praised.

Trevor is no stranger to Stonesfield having attended the the Folk Dance Weekend over a great many years. In fact we are quite thrilled that Trevor is able to call for our 49th Folk Dance Weekend.

Bernie Culkin is a wonderfully young caller in the majority of folk dance genres and is considered one of the finest tutors around. Bernie has a detailed knowledge of the beautiful dances coming from the USA and is sure to call some of these  in one of her workshops. Bernie puts a lot of emphasis on 'dance style' and this Bernie promotes at her Kindred Spirits Folk Dance Club.

STRADIVARIOUS must surely be one of the finest folk bands in our World of Folk Dance. They play music with vitality and strength and such is their popularity the band is playing somewhere every weekend.

Over the years the band has headlined at every major Folk Dance Festival. This is their first time at our Folk Dance Weekend . However they have run some hugely successful Music Days at Stonesfield  & Steventon, Oxon.

It is a great pleasure to welcome Stradivarious to our 49th Stonesfield Folk Dance Weekend.
