Group - The Banana Sessions
Once upon a time there was a band. Before that, there were merely five musical folk with a shared love of fruit, tea, fun and a jaunty tune, but the fates and these shared loves brought them together. In time, ideas were scribbled, the kettle worked almost as hard as their strange musical minds, many curvy yellow fruits were eaten, and the first songs were born. These were the Banana Sessions, and so it began…
The Banana Sessions sing songs of sunshine, caterpillars, brews, Buckfast, pirates and stranger encounters, plus a few unconventional interpretations of classics too (one crowd favourite being 90s techno classic No Limit by 2Unlimited). Their style is not one easily described, but they have been described in their time as folky, proggy, breezy, bouncy, jazzy, quirky, and ‘unashamedly good fun’. Whatever genre they may be, the band have rapidly gained a reputation as purveyors of quality musicianship with equal quantities of humour in Edinburgh and beyond.
