Banshee's being ported to work on Windows, but I don't know if there's 
much GTK# work going on to make that happen: 

If you're looking for help with the code, there's a bit here:

Your GTK# app will make it look like, well, a GTK# app. GTK--in general, 
regardless of language--has a Wimp theme that makes it look (very much) 
like Windows. See Pidgin:

There's a lot to be said for familiarity. That said, GTK is great, if 
you ask me.
