Gadarene blend obscure traditional English tunes, virtuoso acoustic musicians, funky beats and loads of energy.
The five-piece play drums, mandolin, double bass, fiddle and flute, their musicianship and effects units transforming obscure English 18th and 19th-century tunes into numbers from intricate acoustic trance to alternative modern dance hits.
Drawing on styles from pop and rock to electronic and dub, the band’s pioneering attitude to folk brings glorious old tunes to life.
The set features Lancashire clog and Dartmoor step dance, and gets audiences up dancing too!
Delivered with great rhythm, innovative instrumentation and good humour, Gadarene’s infectious sound is sophisticated enough for seated audiences and wild enough to get everyone dancing.
“a splendidly vibrant unit who take chances and pull more than rabbits out of the hat.” (fRoots magazine)
“Clever and intricate arrangements” (Acoustic Magazine)
“the tightness and skill of this quintet gives a sound that carries across the varying styles, setting them apart as a unique unit who are definitely worth discovering.” (Fatea)
“musicians sparking off each other in no small order.” (fRoots magazine)
“a hugely bold sound… It’s a sound that refocuses the genre, a new relevance that’s beyond tradition.” (Dave Henderson, MOJO)
These amazing old tunes are all miniature masterpieces and deserve the exposure.
Some of the tunes have not been played for 300 years and it’s brilliant to see audiences enjoying them so much.
