Launching their new album, Volume Two: Live in 2016, Gadarene play a unique brand of 'ultra modern ancient tunes', which has been aired on Radio 2, 6 Music, and local stations in the lead up to the album release.\nGadarene blend obscure traditional English tunes, virtuoso acoustic musicians, funky beats and loads of energy. The five-piece play drums, mandolin, double bass, fiddle and flute, their musicianship and effects units transforming obscure English 18th and 19th-century tunes into numbers from intricate acoustic trance to alternative modern dance hits. Drawing on styles from pop and rock to electronic and dub, the band's pioneering attitude to folk brings glorious old tunes to life. The set features Lancashire clog and Dartmoor step dance, and gets audiences up dancing too! \nDelivered with great rhythm, innovative instrumentation and good humour, Gadarene's infectious sound is sophisticated enough for seated audiences and wild enough to get everyone dancing. \na splendidly vibrant unit who take chances and pull more than rabbits out of the hat.
