Sheila originally comes from Gullane in East Lothian and has been dancing practically all her life. She has been calling with The Occasionals for several years now and is often called upon by other bands when a caller is required. Audiences really warm to her engaging style and she likes nothing better than encouraging a crowd to give a dance a go! And they do! Sheila has a wide range of ceilidh, country and reeling type dances in her extensive repertoire and actively seeks new dances for crowds to try. She runs classes at Whale Arts, South Queensferry and is part of the committee that now runs the Scotch Hop Ceilidhs in Linlithgow Palace.
