On Sunday 10th August, The Bath Artisan Market will be welcoming back bands from The Bath Folk Festival who will be playing all day at Green Park Station.
Last year’s collaboration between the market and festival was a great success and drew large crowds who were especially entertained by youthful ceilidh band Threepenny Bit and the barn-storming ARDS CCE from Ireland.
The Bath Artisan Market say they are extremely happy to announce that both acts are returning this year. They are also very excited about their headline act, is Owl in the Sun, a West Country 6 piece who inhabit a musical world of Americana, gypsy jazz and contemporary folk.
Alongside the free live acts are over 60 stalls selling the best of Bath’s art, vintage and designer-maker wares, plus local food producers, excellent coffee and delicious hot food.
The Bath Artisan Market runs on the second Sunday of each month and recently won a BEHTA Award (Bath Events, Hospitality and Tourism Award) for working with other events in the city like the Bath Folk Festival.
Picking up where Sunday leaves off, The Bath Artisan Market and The Bath Folk Festival are further collaborating the following week by hosting a special series of free lunchtime gigs on the market square at Green Park Station, Bath.
From Monday 1th August to Friday 15th August there will be live music every day, select artisan and food stalls and free kids’ workshops and activities, so you can come and shop, eat lunch to a soothing folk soundtrack and keep the kids entertained too.
You will also be able to buy tickets for other Bath Folk Festival events in the city and find out more about the festival from the Bath Folk Festival’s Info stall which will be there all week.
