Bristol Folk House, Sat 1 May
Gadarene (Saturday, Folk House)
Alternative-folk pioneers Gadarene play their uplifting brand of dance-influenced grooves.
Gadarene use dance music from the ancient traditions of England and fuse it seamlessly with modern styles and genres. Mixing traditional folk instruments with live drums, looped sounds and special audio effects, their music will take you from dub and African influences, through jazz to rock and funk via swing and step dance.
Delivered with great rhythm, innovative instrumentation and good humour, Gadarene’s infectious sound is both sophisticated and wild.
