Bateleurs (updated!)

Bateleurs are an exciting contemporary folk/rock band.

Central to the sound is the distinctive duel lead vocals & harmonies of Daryl Ball & Sean Amor.

directory of local bands
Daryl s vocals are smooth with an Irish inflection, Sean s voice is tender with a plaintiff, jagged edge, which cuts right through and suits their music perfectly. They are accompanied by Chris Mac (drums), Nick Wall (bass) and Anna Wall (fiddle) To create the authentic sound, Bateleurs employ numerous instruments in addition to the standard Guitar, Bass & Drums. These include mandolin, ukulele, harmonica, strumstick & cajon.

They have been favourably compared to The Waterboys, The Levellers, Mumford and Son, Bob Dylan and Tom Petty.

The band is popular on the South West music scene and veterans of many summer festivals such as Wessex Folk Festival (Weymouth) Swindon s Big Arts Day, Riffstock, Treefest (Westonbirt), Somerfest, NewtFest, Broadtown Big Gig & the Packhorse Fair (Bruton)
