Stompin' Dave's Barn Dance


Stompin' Dave and friends will be on the Main Stage on Saturday.

Stompin' Dave described by Maverick Magazine as "one of the world's greatest performers" teams up with caller and musician Jess Collins who regularly calls with London's top hoedown band Cut A Shine. This is a great chance for you to take your partner by the hand and get swinging.

With twenty five years of performing experience Dave has performed across the UK and appeared at Glastonbury, Camp Bestival, Bestival, Boomtown Fair and The Secret Garden Party. Dave was the winner of the FOAOTMAD old-time banjo competition 2011 and 2013.

Jess Collins is a fantastically talented caller, old time fiddle player, flat foot dancer and singer. As well as her calling for Cut A Shine Jess also performs with the bands Wriggly Tin and The Lying Hounds. Jess has great skill at calling simple dances that even a total bar dance beginner can really enjoy.
