The New Room will be marking Make Music Day on Friday 21 June with a day of free music in its cafe and Broadmead courtyard: folk, blues, flutes, preludes, from 17th Century West Gallery music to 21st Century Folk Americana – join them any time between 11am-4pm for their celebration of music in Bristol.
Make Music Day
11am – ‘Bristol Harmony’, West Gallery Quire. Singers and instrumentalists recreate the vigorous music of 18th and 19th century English village choirs.
12pm – A Different Thread. Folk duo inspired by the music that has crisscrossed the Atlantic over the generations in true folk fashion, they weave together elements of folk, country and blues to create what they call: ‘British-Americana’.
1pm – All are welcome to the weekly communion service taking place in the chapel.
1.30pm- Philip Carter, organist. New Room musical director Philip plays a selection of organ preludes and recessionals on the 18th Century Snetzler organ in the chapel.
2pm – Opal Flutes*. Popular favourites and arrangements of classical music (with some unexpected twists!) from East Dulwich-based flute choir.
2.30pm – Part Time Models. Original songs inspired by folk lyrics and melodies with funky riffs and harmonies.
3pm – Lotus and Life, roots rock reggae duo. Music to set your soul soaring and your heart singing.
