Manchester EuroDance is a community dance group I started in Manchester. Our passion is traditional European folk dance. We mainly dance French and Scandinavian, but are always ready to try something a little different. We run major weekend festivals twice a year, usually around Midsummer and Midwinter.
We are a very friendly and welcoming bunch. You don’t need any dance experience to join us for an event, and you don’t even need a partner!
Manchester EuroDance has a facebook page here feel free to ‘like’ us and get in touch.

“It doesn't matter what they play, its passion, intimate and of high quality.” – Folkworld
Sweden-based Daniel & Emma Reid release their third album, Life Continuum, and embark on a two-month long caravan tour, including England, Scotland, Wales, Sweden and Germany. The duo-couple perform self-penned tunes, traditional material and songs from both Scandinavia and the British Isles, all with a remarkably close and spontaneous interaction. The eclectic mix of instruments and vocals combined with sheer musical brilliance makes for incredibly varied, evocative performances.
Daniel & Emma Reid are two of the busiest musicians in Sweden and have toured as theatre musicians and in folk and world music bands for the last 20 years. Their previous albums have received rave reviews and radio air on both sides of the North Sea.
“A sensitive, mellifluous pairing of fiddle and saxes in elegantly reflective exploration.” – fRoots
