Gadarene blend obscure traditional English tunes, virtuoso acoustic musicians, funky beats and loads of energy.
They create a sophisticated and exciting performance, drawing on many diverse musical influences, yet making a sound that is all their own.
The band’s mission is to take little known dance tunes of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and get audiences dancing to them again. These amazing tunes tie together arrangements drawing on Pop, Rock, Funk, Reggae, Electronica and Club Trance. This leads to a sound which is sophisticated enough for seated audiences and wild enough for audiences who want to dance.
We had a great summer starting with our live recording link. Then we played to a very enthusiastic crowd at the amazing Fire in the Mountain Festival. We finished the summer playing at The London Folk Festival at the centre of the folk universe… Cecil Sharp House.
