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.
