Fred Strang

Fred is a former President of the Pittsburgh Area Callers Association, long time Member of Callerlab, and was one of the first to join PACCA when it was reformed in 2010.


Fred is known for his entertaining calling style, excellent singing voice, his annual work with the PA Farm Show, and for being one of the few yodeling callers left in the area.


Fred is the club caller for Franklin Squares, Pittsburgh’s oldest Modern Western Style Square dance club. He is also an International Recording Artist on multiple record labels, including Gold Rush, Riverboat, and TNT.

Fred has always been an entertainer first and a caller second. Fred’s work over the years with the PA Farm Show 4H program has made him a leader within the activity. His creativity and innovative ideas have inspired many callers over the years and brought Tractor Square Dancing to the PA Farm Show.


Fred is a long time supporter and caller at the PA Square and Round Dance Convention. His love for dancing stands out among callers, as he can often be seen as much on the dance floor as on the stage. Fred is truly a dancing caller and has made Square and Round dancing central in his life.


Fred continues to take bookings in and around the Tii-State area and can be reached at the number below.
