Artist Details

Kendal Green

Ian was introduced to folk dancing by his parents at about the age of ten and has been involved ever since. He started calling whilst at Liverpool University in the sixties and, with Margaret whom he met through folk dancing, was much influenced by the expertise and advice of Ethyl Anderson. 40+ years on he is not only an experienced caller but also a musician - he led Cumbrian Gap for over 30 years - and an active initiator and organiser of regular folk dance activities in Cumbria, notably Reelfolk, the Spring Weekend at Casterton and the Summer Week at Morland. Margaret has also played in the band since the beginning and as the duo Kendal Green they run the regular ‘First Sunday Club’ in Cumbria and have appeared at the Southam Festival, the Bournemouth ‘Light Hearted Dance Weekend’ and elsewhere in the UK, France, Holland and Lithuania.
