Venue: The Royal Room, 5000 Rainier Ave South, Seattle

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.

The 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.

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

Joan Gatti: Fiddle
Lorenzo Testa: Tenor Banjo, Kick, Voice
Jacopo Ventura: Guitar, Voice
Andrea Verga: 5-strings Banjo, Mandolin, Kick, Voice
