Banded Stilts

Banded Stilts are an up and coming five-piece, alternative-folk band that play unique singer-songwriter tunes backed by a folk ensemble of mandolin, banjo, violin, keys, guitars and drums.

According to the band's bio, the sometimes odd lyrics, beautiful melodies, folk styling and storytelling narratives appeal to young and old alike.

Banded Stilts made their live performance debut at Halifax's "In the Dead of Winter" music festival, followed shortly after by a showcase at the Discovery Stage at the 2011 ECMAs.

They are anticipating the release of their debut EP, "By the Back Stair."

It was recorded with Don Mackay of Spaces Between Studios (Amelia Curran, Tanya Davis, Acres and Acres) and will be released June 2011 followed by a string of shows stretching from Halifax to Vancouver!
