James Calls Mainstream 53 thru A2, he presently Calls for 3 clubs, Southampton Squares, Tadley Squares and Tilehurst Swingers.
James has a very busy Calling schedule, Calling 3 nights a week and most weekends. He is a regular staff Caller at many festivals throughout the U.K. and Europe. James has called in many countries including Germany, Switzerland, Holland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, U.S.A., Scotland, Wales and Guernsey .
One of the highlights in James' Calling career was Calling to 150 Squares at the 2001 National Convention in Anaheim U.S.A. while being backed by the Ghost-riders Square Dance Band. Another highlight he recalls was Calling on top of a mountain in Switzerland, 10,000 feet above sea level, with nothing more than a walking stick to make the music.
