For 2017 TradArr will be appearing on Wednesday 2nd August, for a free pre-Festival Concert at Wickham Community Centre, 8pm.
It’s 45 years since Liege & Lief almost single-handedly created the genre folk-rock. Since then, that simple marriage of traditional music and electric instruments had been suborned and sidetracked, dissected and documented, Oystered, Albioned and Steeleyed.
Time for a fresh approach. Enter Trad Arrr.
TradArr band members are Gregg Cave, Mark Stevens, Marion Fleetwood, Guy Fletcher and PJ Wright. Their new album, Cautionary Tales puts the rock into folk rock but leavens the oomph with musical subtlety and instrumental virtuosity. Visit Proper Records to purchase this album.
