Formed in Liverpool in 2016, Acadian Driftwood makes roots music for the digital age. The band draws on both Americana and their own British musical heritage to produce a diverse alchemy of rock, blues, country, and surrealism.
The band have already earned airplay and support from BBC Radio Merseyside’s Dave Monks and are winning an army of fans thanks to their presence on Liverpool’s vibrant music scene.
“The UK’s freshest purveyors of British Roots n roll, a uniquely British take on roots rocks it would be wrong to pigeon-hole Acadian Driftwood.”

“Spirited melody and tranquil harmonies, although an expected contrast, combine with the lyrical darkness to create an amazing sound.”

“This is not generic music that has been thrown off an assembly line; this is handcrafted music that has been handled with patience and care.”
Richard Bradshaw, The Culture Journal
“Boasting a sea of talent among the three of them Acadian Driftwood delve deep into the roots of musical history, harnessing the best of country and blues and fusing it into modern day jams.”
