Bristol Male Voice Choir and The Frampton Shantymen

Date: 31st August 2019

Time: 7.30pm Concert starts. Doors open from 7pm

Location: St Michael's Church, next door to the Barn

Join us for a summer evening concert with Bristol’s ‘biggest boy band’ the Bristol Male Voice Choir and our favourite land-based seafarers The Frampton Shantymen. It’s guaranteed to be an evening to remember!

Bristol Male Voice Choir have developed a wide-ranging repertoire over almost 50 years. They have performed in concert halls, churches, weddings, and private functions, ranging from Eastern Europe, New York’s Carnegie Hall, the Eden Project in Cornwall, and not forgetting Bristol’s churches and cathedrals. Under their Musical Director Jo Scullin and accompanist Elaine Smith, the choir constantly seek to maintain high musical standards wherever they perform.

The Bristol Male Voice Choir will be joined by the Frampton Shantymen, a group of mates who met many years ago through the Frampton Cotterell Male Voice Choir. They would sing in the pub after rehearsals, finding that was a good way to get people to move away and leave them space to sit.  Then they tried sea shanties and people started to move towards us so they could join in. They’d hit on something!

As you may know the Barn is undergoing building and conservation work, and as we couldn’t possibly squeeze the choir alone into the Cartshed, for this concert we’re heading next door to St Micheal’s Church.

Tickets: £10 adults, £5 children under 16.
