Speaking to Bath Hospital Radio, Rachel Barratt from Bath Folk Festival explained what patients and visitors to the RUH can expect next week:
- Monday 8 August, 1pm in the Friends cafe – Reg Meuross will be performing beautiful songs. “He has the voice of an angel and a great sense of humour.”
- Tuesday 9 August, 1pm in the Atrium – The Towpath Choir (pictured above) with some great folk songs they have discovered on Britain’s canal network.
- Wednesday 10 August, 1pm in the Friends cafe – “Guitarist Toby Noble, the finalist in last year’s Bath Folk Festival’s New Shoots competition, will be performing his blues inspired songs.”
- Thursday 11 August, 1pm in the RUH atrium – accordionist Michael Biggins with James Taylor providing foot stomping guitar accompaniment. “This duo, whose music combines Irish and Scottish tunes, are beginning to make a large impact on the UK folk scene.”
- Friday 12 August, 1pm in the RUH atrium – Deuair is Elsa Davies and Ceri Owen-Jones: fiddle, harp & two voices. Deuair (pronounced ‘day-ire’) is literally ‘two words’, an old Welsh poetic form and measure.
In addition to these great 40 minute daily performances at the RUH, the folk festival has performances taking place at St John’s Hospital in central Bath every weekday evening from 6pm.
