More information about the group

The Bath Folk Singers are a friendly choir coming together to sing English Folk Songs in traditional harmony. We sing for the joy of singing but have also have performed in and around Bath and Larkhall. One of the highlights of our year is our Christmas concert where we perfom traditional carols at the New Oriel Hall, then sing them again in some local pubs. To join this group of singers you don't need to audition and you don't need to be able to read music. All songs are taught by ear with music provided. The group is lead by Matt Norman
