A Traditional Carols Concert from the Somerset Russets & the Bath Folk Singers

Wed 21 December 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm GMT

Concert: Queen Square

This heart-warming seasonal concert brings together the Bath Folk Singers and the Somerset Russets for a lively evening of pre-Victorian Christmas music.

Between the mid seventeenth and late eighteenth centuries there was a great flourishing of vernacular religious music in England.  In churches this took the form of a village band accompanying a choir.  These choirs would also sing elsewhere, particularly at Christmas, where carolling from home to home around the villages became a popular past time.  In this concert both the Somerset Russets and the Bath Folk Singers explore this rich and largely forgotten repertoire.

Bath Folk Singers (Matt Norman) : A small choir specialising in  traditional songs from the south-west and carols from the pre-Victorian tradition.

Somerset Russets (Chas Blacker) a village band playing music from the nineteenth century.

This event is FREE, with a retiring collection in aid of local charities – no booking required.
