FireFOLK 2019

A celebration of the BathIRON balustrade

Join us in Parade Gardens again for an exciting line-up of talented local FOLK bands, to celebrate the installation of the BathIRON bandstand balustrade -a beautiful sculptural piece which was hand-forged by teams of blacksmiths from all over the UK during BathIRON 2018.

Sunday 26th May  2019- 6pm til late

We’ve handpicked some of the best local folk bands from Bath, Frome, the Mendips and Bristol – with something for absolutely everyone so bring the whole family!  There’ll be a bar and food stalls, and we’ll also be celebrating the traditional heritage craft of the artist blacksmith with live forging demonstrations throughout the evening.

The FireFOLK line up will feature Sinnober, The Drystones, Nathanial Mann, The Striking Clock and The Railway Sleepers: with everything  from atmospheric folk-swing harmonies, foot-stomping jazz funk  to roof-raising, barn-storming gypsy punk –  it will be an absolute blast. Scroll down to listen to the bands …
