The Balladeers

The Balladeers evoke a distant time and place, bringing you something back that you will never have heard before.

They create a psychedelic sound that could have defined the genre, had it existed before the acid generation.

They have few influences other than their own imaginations and musical passion.

directory of local bands
They are musical troubadours, following their own course of mournful melodies and gypsy rhythms. The music resonates deep inside people, no matter their taste. It's wild, intricate, highly melodic and accessible qualities are strange but familiar. Perhaps even strangely familiar to those who are tuned in, to a music that at once sounds ancient, yet playful and experimental in a modern classical way.

Romantic poetry, nursery rhymes, medieval riffs, psychedelic imagery, 60's inspired melody, nightmarish carnival and fairground sounds, blues, jazz and eastern European stylings are all insanely bound together with a distinctly minor key, standing alone like a magnificent monolith inscribed with the names of anyone who has ever felt a touch of the wandering minstrel inside them.
And all this from a 3-piece.
