Balter are a contemporary folk quartet who have emerged from the music scene in Newcastle. Leaning heavily towards their shared love of Scottish music, they combine traditional and original material with percussive step-dance to create a high energy, driven sound which complements and stretches their traditional influences. The interplay between two fiddles, mandolin and accordion generates a distinctive sound which explores new textures; gelled together with intricate arrangements. Taking to the stage with exuberance and an infectious live energy, Balter have been performing extensively around the North East of England and Scotland and have began to extend their audiences further afield.
Their video “Erica’s” was released yesterday and it looks fantastic! I hope you’ll enjoy the sound too, which was recorded live on location as you can read about in this earlier post.
