Ring O Bells
Bath Folk Club upcoming gig at the Ring O Bells, Widcombe Parade, Bath BA2 4JT
Rosie Hodgson is a folk singer/songwriter from Midhurst, West Sussex. Having grown up surrounded by traditional music, her voice possesses a naturalness and maturity, bringing "a ruby-richness to lyrics new and old". (Folk Radio UK). She has performed at the Bath Folk Festival twice with the celebrated band Crossharbour in 2015 and 2016. She’ll be joined by fellow band mate and virtuoso multi-instrumentalist Phillipe Barnes and fiddle player Rowan Piggott.
There will also be time for a limited number of floor spots for audience members who would like to play a song or two at the beginning of the night. The Ring O Bells serves excellent food for those who wish to eat before the performance. We suggest booking a table in advance as it can get very busy on a Friday night.
"Rise Aurora is an absolute gem of an album... full of beautiful music... There is a very long and bright future dawning."

Devon based Miranda Sykes, the acclaimed singer and bassist with ‘Show of Hands’ returns in 2019 with a new album and UK tour.

Building on the success of her Borrowed Places tour, Miranda Sykes is back with a completely new project: Her new album ‘Behind The Wall’
Where Borrowed Places opened a window into the past, explaining where she had been, physically and spiritually, Behind The Wall is a Roller Coaster Ride exploring where we are going; Miranda, you, me, all of us. What does it mean to be human today, living in our communities and societies and where will our actions lead us?
Powerful and hard-hitting but also poignant and beautiful, this show is not to be missed. www.mirandasykes.com

Joshua Burnell & Band at Chapel Arts
📅 Saturday 4 May 2019
Chapel Arts Bath
After releasing a weekly folk song for a year, BBC Radio 2 spins and glowing press reviews, York based Joshua Burnell & Band take to the stage to launch a brand new album in 2019.
In 2017, Joshua and his band won The Great British Folk Festival audience poll for favourite act by an overwhelming majority and received the ‘Highly Commended Best Performing Artist’ award at the York Culture awards.
Armed with ‘The Road To Horn Fair’, a brand-new album of traditional material which according to Joshua, “juxtaposes the delicacy of the English folk canon with the rawness of the early 70s hard rock movement,” the band are ready to set some feet stomping on their first national tour of England.
Momentum is starting to build fast for the band as they launch the new album and the tour. They will be showcasing material from the newly released ‘The Road To Horn Fair’, along with some favourites from Joshua’s previous albums,’ Into the Green’ and ‘Songs From The Seasons’. joshuaburnell.co.uk
