THE FREE RADICALS are:
Mike Gibbs (mandolin)
Chris Kershaw (guitar/fiddle)
Luke Nathan (bass)
Richard Johnston (spoons/percussion)
Based in Surrey, England, THE FREE RADICALS
play folk music taking inspiration from traditional celtic music, bluegrass, Ukrainian dance music, and other influences mixing it together to produce
a unique sound. Taking the basic four instruments of mandolin, guitar, bass and spoons, with occasional fiddle, harp and percussion, TFR have a distinctly
acoustic vibe, but don't conform to the traditionalist image of many modern-day folk bands. Born in the pubs of Godalming, Surrey, TFR are essentially a live
act, but have spent time in the studio to produce two albums 'Out Of The Hedge' and 'Hydon's Ball' which have an electric and psychedelic edge to their normal
acoustic sound. You can catch the band at one of our local gigs in pubs or at festivals in Surrey and Sussex, check out the listing on the gigs page.
You are guaranteed a rip-roaring, foot-tapping time!
