Woody Lane


Woody Lane (Roseburg, OR) is an exciting, high-energy caller from southern Oregon. He calls contras, squares, triplets, circles, mixers — simple and complex — all fun. For more than 30 years, he has called around the PNW and across the country on extended tours and at dance camps from Alaska to Florida, at evening dances, weddings, parties, and schools. Woody is also an accomplished clogger. He often accompanies the band as a foot percussionist, spicing the music with driving rhythms. His goal is simple: give dancers an evening of joyous fun. He works closely with the musicians and strives to orchestrate the music, calling, and dancing into an evening of unforgettable magic. Woody likes the advice of the legendary caller Sandy Bradley, who said that at the end of the evening, if the dancers leave the hall smiling and wanting to come back again — they may not know your name as a caller, but you’ve done your job.
