Dan Mason

Dan Mason first came to Zeilitzheim in 2015 with Felina, and hasn’t missed a camp since. He is a regular caller in The Lake District where he lives with Felina (whom he married in 2017), and between them, they organise the Crook Morris team who dance Cotswold, Border and Rapper, as well as performing Mumming plays around Christmas and Easter time. Dan is part of a real ‘Folk family’ and has been involved with the English Folk Camps all his life. He led his 1st Folk Camp in England in 2009 and hasn’t been seen in public without his hat since. As well as calling and dancing all these types of Morris, he also plays concertina and sings. Indeed, his rendition of ‘The Pirate Song’ has now become part of the Zeilitzheim tradition.

Dave Ball

A Folk Camp regular. He plays melodeon, violin & English concertina and is a very experienced band leader and good-humoured dance caller, with a range of unusual dances and interesting tunes. He’s also the composer of several Folk Camp favourite dance tunes. Personal highlights over the last 20 years: founding the „Well - Dressed Band“; Co-organiser and tutor for the Swaledale Squeeze for concertina players; Festival Orchestra Leader at Whitby Folk Festival for several years; playing the concertina on the 4th Plinth in Trafalgar Square, London for an hour as part of an artwork by Antony Gormley, and in June 2019 completing a 5 year project collecting at least one tune for each day of the year, whose tune name references that particular day.

Emma Riemer

Emma is 24 years old and plays tuba and violin. Currently, she is studying “science of music education for primary schools“ in Vorarlberg, so she is very used to working with children. She is a conductor, a tuba teacher, and plays in several orchestras as well as teaching music at the Neuen Mittelschule Oberland. All through her childhood she came to Folk Camp Germany with her family, so is very much part of the big German Folk Camp family.
