Bath Youth Folk Band


Platinum Toyota Bath on Lower Bristol Road

About the band:
Bath Folk Youth Band was set up in June 2014. The Senior Band is made up of experienced players (mainly grade 5-8 standard) who also learn tunes by ear. They are a highly talented group of musicians, who play with such enthusiasm and skill that it is easy to forget that they are only teenagers. The band includes a wide range of instruments, including accordions, melodeons, saxophones, fiddles, whistle, flute, pipes, banjo and cajon. The band’s junior section caters for students (grade 1- 4) who want to develop their skills, learn new tunes (often by ear) and enjoy playing in informal ensembles with a view to joining the senior band later on if they want to.

The band’s sound:
Bath Folk Youth Band plays a range of new and traditional folk arrangements.
