Chris Punter

Chris has been playing acoustic guitar in bands since he was 18 and has spent over 38 years looking for overnight success! He has been the driving rhythm behind many folk bands over the years including Two Left Feet, Shamus O’Blivion and the Mega Death Morris Men, Bellows Scratchett and Pluckett, Fiddle Factor, Bang on the Wall, Moon shine and kurly Kale to name a few. He has been described as a “musical tart” by the other members of the band but has remained faithful to Dark Horse since its inception in 2005. His main influences are in the folk rock camp and likes everything between Ralph McTell and Motorhead. His enjoys taking the vocal batten on the lively Irish songs and is looking forward to an exciting year with the band.
