Gadarene take old English tunes, add their own sprinkling of ideas, modern dance grooves and music production to revitalise and energise these stunning tunes into something new. They create a sophisticated and exciting performance, drawing on many diverse musical influences, yet making a sound that is all their own.
The perfect music for a folky rave! - BRIGHT YOUNG FOLK
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.
