Bath Folk Youth Band

Nurturing young musicians

Bath Folk Youth Band is a new project that aims to establish a top-class youth folk ensemble in Bath, drawing on the enthusiasm and talents of students from our annual Traditional Music Summer School.


The ensemble was formally launched at Bath Folk Festival 2014 with a week of workshops and performances, including a collaboration with the amazing Ards CCE. The group will promote the traditional music of the British Isles and will encourage students to develop their own arrangements and style within the folk canon.

Most Bath Folk Youth Band members are Grade 5-8 standard. They have not all taken the traditional route of music exams but they can all learn tunes by ear. We are keen to welcome new members and hold monthly workshops for students from Grades 1-4 to help them develop the skills necessary to join the band.
