The Time Bandits

The Time Bandits

The Time Bandits are a Chester-based folk band who came together for the first time in 2001. We are equally at home playing for both concerts and ceilidhs. Our repertoire mixes Renaissance and early dance music, particularly tunes from the John Playford collection, with traditional folk tunes and songs and an increasing proportion of music written by ourselves.

Central to the band’s philosophy is that early music is not for the museum. Whether first played 500 hundred years ago, or perhaps a mere hundred years ago, this is living music that should be played and enjoyed with a passion. We hope you agree.
