The act is based in Brighton and play all over Sussex and the South West.
Dryadic boast an impressive mix up of rhythms which underpin candid, heartfelt lyrics traversing an acoustic spectrum with Eastern European influence at one end, and British trad-folk at the other. The Brighton based duo is made up of songwriters - Zora (vocals, guitar) and Joanna (fiddle, guitar, vocals) from the 'late' gypsy folk-roots 5 piece - The Tatsmiths.
Dryadic's sets include old Tatsmiths' favourites, new collaborations and traditional folk covers. The sumptuous harmonies melt seamlessly into bold, heart-soaring pop hooks, enthralling folk reels and stomping gypsy protest songs. Zora and Jo deftly deploy double guitar, fiddle, dreamy melodies and percussive toys to bring their musings on the human condition to life, creating a captivating, magical sound that promises to ensnare the most diverse of audiences.
“Dryadic effortlessly lassooed a packed out crowd into their gorgeous folk melodies and charming showmanship at The Secret Level last night. Big up to them.”
