£10.00

Since we released our debut album, East of Alexandria, we have been steadily increasing our profile. We were nominated for the Fatea Magazine Debut Album of 2015, made The Telegraph Top Folk Albums of 2015, performed on Main Stage 2 at Cambridge Folk Festival alongside Sam Kelly and the Lost Boys, La Vent du Nord and Wildwood Kin, added to an increasing list of respected festivals at which we have played.

We are now preparing to release our next project; our first Traditional EP and we are very excited about it.

This EP comprises a set of traditional songs collected during the period of recording our debut album East of Alexandria and which have been played alongside those album tracks. Some of these songs have a long, rich history and they have existed in different guises under various names. This collection  has been named for an older variant of Lady Isabel and the Elf Knight  – ‘The Outlandish Knight’.

We invite you to join us in celebrating the release of the EP, by joining us at St. Andrew’s Church, Kinson, Bournemouth, on Saturday the first of April at 7pm. We have invited our friend Emily Mae Winters down from Cambridge to promote her debut album as well so it will be agood evening of music for you.

Tickets are £12 on the door, on the night or you can purchase yours here for £10 with no booking fee.

What Others Say About Kadia

I must say I was impressed with the sound this trio produced. Having been fortunate enough to have acquired a copy of the band’s latest EP, “Beacon Fires”, the EP more than confirms my initial thoughts, that Kadia don’t only know how to put a tune together, they also know how to make it theirs.

East of Alexandria Album

East of Alexandria

£10.00

Recording began in Summer 2014, in the loft, with the blazing heat and unbearable recording conditions, it was decided to recruit the help of an engineer and allow Chris the chance to learn the full workings of Pro Tools and engineer techniques.

We spent five months working with Matt Pittori, behind the scenes, formulating our debut album, pulling together 8 original pieces inspired by traditional maritime and military themes and 4 traditional arrangements and we present East of Alexandria.

The name is based around the ‘Battle of the Nile’ which was one of Lord Nelson’s most famous naval victories over the French which took place in the southern Mediterranean in the late 18th century. East of Alexandria is also one of our favourite tracks on the album.

For the project we have utilised close harmony singing, cello, guitar, ukulele, mandolin and percussion and the sound centres around a footstomping, vibrant and uplifting feel, even when the song describes death, heart ache and general misery, as many good folk songs often do. David took the chance to record on a full drum kit for the percussion and we brought in our friend Rachel to record some violin work.
