Kadia East of Alexandria

Kadia – Dorset Folk Trio

Welcome to the home of Kadia, the Dorset based folk trio.

Kadia perform 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.
