At age 87, Dudley is still fully engaged in a
65-year career as a dance caller for
local country dances throughout
New England.

Dudley has the rare ability to both call a
dance while also playing an instrument.  
He plays melodeon, harmonica
& sometimes , when his fingers allow,
his fiddle at old town halls,
farmer's markets, folk festivals,
weddings, barn dances,
kitchen junkets and for the
Canterbury morris dance team.
