Banter

Banter are Simon Care on melodeon, Nina Zella on keyboards and vocals and Tim Walker on drums, percussion, brass and dance calling. They are rooted in English traditional music but incorporate influences of pop, jazz, soul and big band sounds.

Although just three people, they create a huge sound and have been described as the world’s smallest big band.

 “A splendid disregard for musical boundaries, but with a respect for English traditional music”  –

Songlines – 4 star review

“Think Bob Cann meets Chas n Dave meets La Bottine Souriante and you might be getting somewhere close” – John Spiers (Spiers Boden, Bellowhead)
