The band formed originally in 2012 under the name Reluctant Dragon and grew organically into its current 7 piece format.
In August 2017 the band chose a new name, The Chaunters, to reflect its home grown style and the folk genre it has grown so comfortable in.
The Chaunters are heavily influenced by folk music from around the British Isles and Ireland. The lead singer, Kevin Boor, is of Anglo-Irish descent and this mix is present in both his voice and the songs the band create and perform.
That said, the band comprises members from Luxembourg, the U.K., Italy and the U.S.A. and each member brings their unique ancestral influences, creativity and perspective to the sound.
The Chaunters play music that is both traditional and original. A music video and their latest release can be found on the 'Music and Video' menu.
Even better, come meet us at a gig!
We appreciate our audience before almost anything else.
