Perform at Johnny D's!
Yani Batteau and the Styles will bring her unique mountain style banjo playing and vocals, supported by Bass and guitar to Johnny D's.
" I call my sound "Americana soul", says Batteau. "The songs are familiar - -folk, country, I rearrange them, I add verses, new chords. I give it a minor chord, which tends to make the song a little deeper. The essence of the song is still there, but the way I present it isn't the same old way, and the audience listens to it a little differently". She adds, "Some people would classify us as country, but we're kind of unclassifiable."
The Boston Globe has declared that "Yani Batteau has carved out her own niche of what she calls mountain music." The Boston Blues Society has called her "absolutely the real deal followinf the best in traditional folk and blues."
