SUNDAY - Amadou Diagne & Band live at The Bell On: October 26, 2014 13:00
Currently one of Bath's more visible talents with a great summer of festival gigs behind him, and even the forthcoming London International Festival of Exploratory Music, ooh! Expect a more beefed-up band than previous, but knowing Amadou as we do, it will still have a lovely friendly Sunday Afternoon vibe to it too.

MONDAY - Whiskey Moonface live at The Bell On: October 27, 2014 21:00
Seriously looking forward to this one, been trying to book them for nigh on a year now. Rootsy street-jazz with a Tom Waits sort of stagger/swagger but an intelligence all of their own, great vocals, a clear sense of humour and the will, ability and energy to push it all further. Could be a classic in the making...

WEDNESDAY - Ushti Baba live at The Bell

WEDNESDAY - Ushti Baba live at The Bell On: October 29, 2014 21:00
Ushti Baba More of the International Gipsy Carnival Conspiracy – my mother said I never should, but hey, you know – with an even more eclectic set of influences than usual. You’re lost on the outer reaches of some festival, someone hands you an impossibly strong drink, a band comes on that mixes everything you’ve ever heard and you dance like dervish till dawn or until you fall over (whichever happens first). These are they.

Playgroup Open Mic Night

Playgroup Open Mic Night On: October 30, 2014 20:30

It is the best place for meeting othermusicians and performers, and for gigging experience. Everyone and everything is welcome. This is such a good night out don't miss it!
