The studio project that grew into TRADarrr has, in the years since their explosive debut at Fairport's Cropredy Convention 2015, played many festivals, concerts and clubs; they have released two critically-acclaimed studio albums and an exciting live album. It is such a common credit on folk albums that it is surprising nobody thought of adopting it as a band moniker before now.
TRADarrr - a 21st Century take on Folk Rock. As you’d expect, there is precision percussion, searingly tasteful guitars, melodic basses and fiery fiddles that one associates with the genre. But in addition, find brass in a truly British style – the dazzling brightness of Purcell, the oomph of Elgar, the emotive richness of a Yorkshire brass band soloist - but also hints of jazz, trad and modern, and even the occasional mariachi riff, string sections, and countless astute references to a long legacy of pop and rock in its many forms.
