Formed in 2023 to play for blues dancing Blues in Motion felt the musical magic immediately. The soulful bluesy vocals of Sara sat perfectly in the relaxed bluesy grooves created by the rhythm section. Incredibly Sara's sax playing also blended superbly with the experience of the backline. Thus allowing Blues in Motion to play anything from a vocal or instrumental trio to a vocal and instrumental quartet!
