Let chairs sail through the air with this storming new trad quartet

Gadan is the new project created by four experienced and well-known musicians in Irish trad and European folk/rock scene, with years of touring in the major European and US festivals of traditional and contaminated folk music.

An impactful repertoire with a powerful live appeal and a sound comparable to new-trad acts such as Talisk, WeBanjo3, The East Pointers or Rura, but with a unique identity thanks to years of experience in other folk music, from Appalachian & Old Time to Scottish and English folk and traditional music. Two banjos – tenor & clawhammer – fiddle, mandolin, bouzouki and guitar for a “strings-only” sound with a hint of electronics and driven by a powerful rhythmic pulse. Who said you need drums to groove?

 
Andrea Verga: mandolin, banjo, vocals
Jacopo Ventura: guitar, bouzouki, vocals
Joan Gatti: fiddle
Lorenzo Testa: tenor banjo, mandolin, guitar, vocals
