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 masterfully command their audiences with a inimitable balance of trad, new, alternative, romantic and political. Songwriters Zora (vocals, guitar), and Joanna (fiddle, guitar, vocals) formed the outfit in 2017 following the breakup of the gypsy folk-roots 5 piece - The Tatsmiths who were well known for their kicking performances at Glastonbury, Boomtown, Brighton Pride, Brunswick Festival, Shambala and more.
