Oxfolk presents: Banter + Barry Goodman

Oxfolk presents an online dance with Banter and caller Barry Goodman
We're delighted to support this event, which is promoted by our friends at Oxfolk.

Banter - the trio with a huge sound - the world’s smallest big band!
They are Simon Care on melodeon, Nina Zella on keyboards and vocals and Tim Walker on drums, percussion, brass and vocals. They are rooted in English traditional music, yet also incorporate influences from pop, jazz, soul and big band. With ridiculously danceable tunes and cool vibes we are going to have the best time dancing to them.

“Unmistakeable pumping melodeon, screaming brass and visceral vocals!” – Jack Rutter (Seth Lakeman Band)
“Funky brass, unexpected jazz chords, thought-provoking songs” – Jude Abbott (Chumbawamba)

The caller is Barry Goodman, with his trademark reassuring manner and brilliant way of explaining dances quickly and clearly. Banter and Barry worked together at Oxfolk in January 2020 and we are delighted to have them back together again. Barry has adapted dances for 1 to 4 people, that work well when danced at home, so push back the furniture, pour yourselves a drink and come and have a laugh.

Oxfolk's online ceilidhs are brilliant for people of all ages and we love to see the inventive and joyous dancing from the families, groups of housemates, solo dancers and couples that join us for an evening of collective fun.

The dance will take place live in Zoom.

Details of how to access the event will be in your ticket confirmation. Please make sure you check your spam or junk email folders if you don't receive it straight away, and contact us if there are problems.


We are offering three ticket types for this event:
- Standard ticket is the ‘normal’ price that we would charge for the event
- Pay a bit more is for those who can afford to, and would like to help support live music and our artists
- Pay a bit less is for those who would find the standard ticket a bit of a stretch, for whatever reason.

You can purchase whichever ticket you like - you don’t need to give a reason, and you won’t be asked for any proof of need. For online events you only need to purchase one ticket per household/computer.

We want to make our events more accessible to more people, and to allow those who would happily pay a bit more to do so easily, helping us to subsidise tickets for those who can’t afford them.
