'This Site is dedicated to two English music sessions that run on alternate weeks in Bath and Bradford on Avon. On this site we want to tell you about the sessions and what to expect at them. We also want to tell you about the music we play and provide resources for people who want to know more ... It’s amazing how little the English know about their own music and dance. We have a rich tradition of music and song that’s the equal of anywhere else in Europe, but you wouldn’t know that from listening to the English media! Catch the Irish or the Scots doing that!'

'The Fishpond Choir, with its eclectic repertoire of world music, is unique. The choir started up in the Fishpond pub in 2001 as a mixed, open access community choir. Nobody knows if it was the country’s first pub choir but founder members like to think so ... The choir, which is about fifty strong, sings a wide selection of material which includes folk music from around the world, light classical pieces and items specially written or arranged ... However, its first love is African music - mostly from the south of the continent. Choir members work very hard ... to produce as authentic a sound as possible.'

‘Formed in 1975, The Houghton Weavers made their television debut in the BBC's talent show "We'll Call You". So successful were they that, within a couple of months they were given their own show "Sit Thi Deawn" which continued for six series over seven years and had the highest viewing figures for any regional T.V. programme ... The Houghton Weavers guarantee a wonderful evening of song and humour. Their experience in the business together with their style and professionalism ensures that, as their motto says, they will always "KEEP FOLK SMILING".’
