Gadarene on Friday 17th September 2021

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 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.

Gadarene’s first studio album Butchers of Bristol was launched in March 2021, and the title track embodies the band’s innovative attitude to folk. Butchers of Bristol is an old country dance tune found in The William Irwin Manuscript dating from 1838, and it, like all the tunes on the album, ends up taking surprising twists and turns through the band’s trademark combination of instrumental virtuosity, creative ingenuity and effects units applied in unexpected ways.

“captures the imagination and gets feet moving. A triumphant live collection.” (The Musicians’ Union)

“Musicians sparking off each other in no small order” (fRoots)

“Blew the feckin doors off!” (The Fire Stage, Purbeck Valley Folk Festival).

Butchers of Bristol is several gear changes up from the band’s well-received live album Live in 2016. Gadarene have spent their time since playing at as many festivals and events as possible and refining their infectious style – not to mention this last year in which there has been plenty of time to polish the album’s production to perfection!
