Welcome. This site is dedicated to two English music sessions that run on alternate weeks in Bath and Bradford on Avon. On this site we want to tell you about the sessions and what to expect at them. We also want to tell you about the music we play and provide resources for people who want to know more.
Here’s where we hold our sessions, two fine pubs:
Both sessions start at 8.30 pm. At the Royal Oak the session is in the main bar and from April 2015 so is the session at the Bear (the slow session remains in the room at the rear of the pub).
A note about parking: the Bear is right in the centre of BoA and has no parking of its own. The nearest parking is in one of the several public car parks on the other side of the bridge. Fortunately the car parks are free in the evenings and it is a short and pleasant walk to the pub, over the bridge and straight on for 200 yds.
For the Royal Oak, everyone usually parks in the old Bath Press car park nearby.
If you’re a musician, come and join in. If you just want to listen, you’re welcome as well. If you are just starting then we hope the material on this site will help.
STOP PRESS: come and join us on Monday 1st September at The Bear for the 10th birthday of the BoA session!
