Calendar and Events

IMPORTANT. DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK AND GOVERNMENT ADVICE WE HAVE DECIDED TO SUSPEND THE PACKHORSE AND THE SWAN SESSIONS INDEFINITELY.

WE ARE, HOWEVER, RUNNING ZOOM SESSIONS ON THE DATES THAT REAL SESSIONS WOULD HAVE HAPPENED. THIS IS, OF COURSE, NOT IDEAL BUT BETTER THAN NOTHING AND MAINTAINS CONTINUITY UNTIL SOMEONE TURNS ON THE NORMALITY SWITCH.

THE CALENDAR BELOW GIVES THE DATES OF ZOOM SESSIONS IN 2021.

First, here is a list of dates for the two sessions, in case you forget which week we’re in. The BoA sessions are on alternate Mondays and the Bath sessions on alternate Wednesdays plus the two sessions are on alternate weeks so there’s never a week with two sessions on.

All the sessions start at 8.30 pm.

* If the pandemic is continuing then these session will happen online, but if we’re back in the pubs then the session will be closed for the summer.
** Might be closed. Check before coming.

We are also involved in running some sessions at festivals. These sessions are run in the name of the Bath and BoA sessions, a lot of people from the sessions turn up and, judging by previous experience, a good time is had by all. The sessions are at Priddy and Bath Folk Festivals, but we’re open to offers for others.

We have a mailing list for session regulars so if there is a cancellation (rare, but it did happen once) we can let everyone know quickly. If you want to be on it just let me know your email address at a session.

BEEN AND GONE EVENTS

Gone but not forgotten!

Thursday 21st April 2011 for one night only

A special session to welcome the Folk Trail walkers as they pass through Bath. The session starts at 8.30 as usual and the walkers will join us at about 9. Lots of music and song are to be expected. You can learn more about the Folk Trail walk from Lands End to John O’Groats here.

Sunday July 17th 2011  at 12.00 am at The George at Woolley, as part of the Woolley Street Festival. This is, of course, the home of the Bradford on Avon session and it is gratifying to be asked to take part. This session will be particularly good for taking the music to people who don’t usually hear it.
