Moves Afoot are a barn dance band based in Brighton.
We have been performing at barn dances in Sussex and the surrounding area for over 25 years. A barn dance (sometimes also known as a ceilidh or folk dance) will make any social gathering a truly memorable occasion by getting your guests to participate, interact and thoroughly enjoy themselves.
Sean, our caller, has a wide repertoire of dances that are simple but fun. He provides clear instructions for the dancing and the emphasis is on having a great time, rather than "doing it right".
Jigs, reels, polkas and hornpipes taken from the English, Irish, Scottish and American folk traditions provide the band's standard fare. To make this more appealing to modern ears these tunes are presented in a "folk rock" style, with some funk and reggae rhythms thrown in for good measure.
