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.
