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

Their high-energy repertoire has a powerful live appeal and a sound comparable to new-trad acts such as Talisk, East Pointers and WeBanjo3, but with a unique identity thanks to years of experience in several folk scenes, from Appalachian & Old Time to Scottish and Italian folk and traditional music.

Their lineup consists of two banjos – tenor & clawhammer – fiddle, mandolin, bouzouki and guitar creating an “strings-only” sound with a hint of electronics, driven by a powerful rhythmic pulse. Gadan's performances build energy, taking audience to ecstasy with their wide spectrum of refreshing yet traditional sound.

The band has just ended its first US tour in October ’22, playing in festivals and folk venues all along the East Coast, from Maine down to North Carolina, then New York and Boston, and will be back in the States in April 2022 for a second tour in Midwest area.

Gadan’s power leaves no one unmoved. You don't need drums to groove.
