Kadia is a Dorset based folk trio performing a mixture of traditional folk music, Irish session tunes, original material and contemporary covers along with the occasional joke, multiple stories and general chatter during their shows. Kadia have made a name for themselves locally for their creative arrangements of traditional music also gaining plaudits for their unique takes on more modern contemporary music. The band are growing in stature and are now beginning to build a following outside of Dorset with the goal now being to increase footprint across the UK.
Kadia’s debut album, East of Alexandria has made it on to the Telegraph’s 2015 Folk Album of the Year list with tracks heard on various local BBC radio stations and the band have been invited to attend many private events and nationally recognised festivals.
“We first saw Kadia at a festival last summer, and immediately invited them to join us at our club in their home town of Bournemouth. Since then they’ve played for us twice , & will be back again very soon – that must surely be the best sort of recommendation! Kadia are three very talented young musicians who also write their own folk based material, in their own unique style. Every time we see them they just get better & better, & their new CD is certainly a must buy for anyone who likes great music”. – Karen Laird (Brunny Folk Club) after seeing Kadia perform for Purbeck Rising.
