WILL BANISTER RETURNS

WILL
BANISTER RETURNS
Clovis, New Mexico singer/songwriter set for festival
appearances

Will Banister, the highly acclaimed
singer/songwriter from
Clovis,
New Mexico, continues his fast
developing international career with a return to the
UK this
Easter.
He’s
set to be one of the headlining acts at the 10th Northern
Nashville Country Music Festival
in Halkirk, Scotland, staged over the
Easter weekend (March 29-31), sharing the bill with Connie Smith, Bobby
Flores,
Kimberley Murray and Bob
Manning
among other US and UK artists.
Banister will make his appearance on Good Friday (29), then heads
south to Watton,
Norfolk where he played a
sell-out concert on his debut UK tour in September 2012. This time he plays the
Queen’s Hall on Sunday, March 31. 
“I’m really looking forward to returning to
Britain
 
he says.
“The British country music fans love real
country music. They made me very welcomed, listening to me and my
songs. I h
ope to make a lot more friends this time
around”.
Will Banister’s success in Britain was launched with
the release of his much praised debut album Turned Her On to
Country
followed by a not-to-be-forgotten slot at the
International Festival of Country Music, Wembley (February 26,
2012) where his six song set brought the audience to its feet, ensuring that he
wouldn’t leave the stage without an encore. The response brought him back to
London for a especially request performance at Channel
5’s launch party for the soap
Dallas and
his debut
UK tour. A second cd,
Turn Back Time, was released to coincide with the tour and
received equally enthusiastic response as his first, creating solid press and
radio support.
This
month’s appearances leads on to two further festival slots – in the
UK and
France.
In
July he returns to the UK for the Americana Festival in
Newark – this year celebrating its 33rd anniversary and boasting a
star line-up that includes P.J. Proby, Georgette Jones, Mandy Barnett,
Carl Mann, Jay Chevalier
and Moe Bandy among four
dozen acts set to perform on two different stages throughout the three day event
(July 12-14).
A
couple of weeks later Will Banister is set to make his European debut at the
Country Rendez-Vous Festival in Craponne Sur Arzon, France – a
three day event (July 26-28) headlined by The
Mavericks
.
Currently an autumn tour is being planned, says promoter
Nicky James, which may see Will Banister
supporting Gene Watson. More details to be
announced.
