I sing traditional songs standing quite still, and I dance to dance music (or 'that thumping music' as my Nan would put it), so there's a disconnect.

So what folk albums do you dance to?

Please link to YouTubes too if possible, it's more fun that way.. :)

All of them. When music plays, I move. It's almost as reflexive as blinking; I doubt I could remain still even to save my life. Okay, I know this remark cries out for someone to post a challenge, that surely I can't dance to such-and-such...and they *may* be right. Suffice it to say: when music has any beat whatsoever, I'm bopping & boogying along.

That includes most jazz too and the many kinds of classical music--once I was almost kicked out of a chamber music concert for moving too much in my seat, which mightily annoyed the couple behind me. However the lead performer came to my defence and management bowed to his delight at having at least one person in the audience thoroughly in the groove.

Call me a charter member of Rhythmics Anonymous.

In my youth, I was a very bad Scottish Highland Dancer. For years, while my legs still worked, I would dance to strasthspeys and reels, when sung.

My sister brought home some music from Galicia in Spain. It begs to be danced to, I wish I knew how.

Of course I have a friend who belly dances to "The Quenn of All Argyle".

I used to dance with my daughter in our sitting room to The Compleat Dancing Master and would have a go at some free-style Laura Ashley moves to Fairport Convention, but can't do it any more.

Can't think of much British folk that makes me want to dance these days, apart from Martyn Bennett. Non-British stuff like this is another matter.

"free-style Laura Ashley moves"

Heh-he!

I must confess to having a taste for festie bands like Peatbog Faeries for dancing to: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cTFX2szsA3I

Then there's Gypsy Punk like Les Negresses Verts and Gogol Bordello.

Where's LizzieCornish when she's needed?

Joy Division: Unknown Pleasures

I'm not sure if the surviving members of JD would thank you for calling UP a folk album, although Stephen Morris is a bit of Fairport & Pentangle fan by all accounts!

I'm not sure if the surviving members of 'Joy Division' would thank you for calling 'Unknown Pleasures' a folk album.

Possibly not, but listen to She's Lost Control after a Friday night in Macclesfield (or 'Macc' as we affectionately know it) and you might understand.

We saw Bad Lieutenant in Preston back in March - basically New Order without Hooky. Whilst they didn't do SLC, they did a few of the old songs to rapturous reception - such as THIS and THIS (on which we appear around 3'.27"). Best of all though was moshing along to Transmission:

No language, just sound, that's all we need know,
To synchronise love to to beat of the show...

PS - As for She's Lost Control, been getting heavily into the 12" version recently - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FVgoV9TgYEI.

It's not very cool I know, but never really got off on Joy Division myself. Always enjoyed New Order's stark electronic thing much more - from Movement on for me... happy sounds..

I love Movement; Dreams Never End is maybe my all time favourite song (along with Public Image, Come Up and See Me, and You Wear it Well) but I take it further back to the legendary Western Works Demo from September 1980. My favourite NO right now is actually a bootleg from Blackpool, August 1981 - play loud & rejoice!
