TRADarrr

TRADarrr last appeared for us at a free pre-Festival Concert at Wickham Community Centre in 2017. We’ve welcomed them back for 2019 to appear on Friday 2nd August.

They are an incredible seven piece folk-rock band comprising of:

  • Mark Stevens – drums, horns
  • PJ Wright – guitar
  • Marion Fleetwood – fiddle, cello, guitar
  • Gregg Cave – guitar
  • Guy Fletcher – fiddle, mandolin
  • Gemma Shirley – fiddle, keyboards
  • Brendan O’Neill – bass

Everyone sings and all possess an interesting musical pedigree. Β 

The studio project that grew into TRADarrr has, in the three years since their explosive debut at Fairport’s Cropredy Convention 2015, played many festivals, concerts and clubs; they have released two critically-acclaimed studio albums and an exciting live album.

2019 sees the band undertaking an early (necessarily pre-Brexit!) European Tour and the recording of a third studio album. They are accepting festival bookings throughout the year – no gathering too small (or too large) for consideration.

TRADarrr ‘s beautifully produced albums use the full palette of sounds that the contemporary recording studio offers, and their live show is a rock’n’roll invigoration of English traditional folk music – five featured singers, harmonies, several fiddles, cello, trumpet, organ, piano, electric & acoustic guitars, etc., etc.
