“A splendid disregard for musical boundaries, but with a respect for English traditional music.”
Songlines 4 star review
Banter are: Simon Care on melodeon, Nina Zellon on keyboards and vocals and Tim Walker on drums, percussion and brass. They are rooted in English traditional music but incorporate influences of pop, jazz, soul and big band sounds. Now firmly established as one of the UK’s finest bands, they have recorded their third studio album THREE, which explores and reimagines a selection of well loved traditional songs as well as a their usual hearty take on some romping dance tunes.John Spiers and Phil Beer appear as guest musicians on two of the tracks. Although just three people, they create a huge sound and have been described as the world's smallest big band.
