Joe Hodgson has lived in Bromyard for 21 years. In 2015 at Chippenham he celebrated 50 years since that ‘fateful’ meeting with Ken Clark which gave him his first job as a jobbing caller in Yardley, in Birmingham. He is well known for his sense of humour when delivering a range of dance material. He is best known for New England squares and contras but is equally at home with English traditional dance. Joe is not only passionate about the material he uses but also the way it is used! He has called at most of the major festivals, including Sidmouth, Chippenham, Whitby, Bromyard, Eastbourne and Broadstairs.
