Beverley F, 3 years ago

Vibrant band Foot Down is based in the South of England. The combination of Erin Mansfield on the whistle and James Kerry on the melodeon produce folk music in a traditional style with a modern vibe.

Sandwich F, 2 years ago

Foot Down played a blinding set on stage at Sandwich Folk and Ale Festival 2017. I have been an admirer of James’s melodeon playing since I first heard him in a pub session. He has developed his own style rooted in traditional morris but merged with modern techniques learnt from the likes of Andy Cutting. He is joined by Erin on high and low whistles which she plays in a lovely fluid Irish style. This lovely young couple have emerged from their Royal Liberty Morris roots to produce an energetic and exciting blend of English and irish tunes and songs as either a duo or a full band with guitar, bass and vocals. Very entertaining.
