The Bristol Brass Consort presents…..

An afternoon of Cheese!!

The BBC founded in 1985, is a symphonic brass ensemble that aims to provide audiences with high quality performances of the established brass repetoire as well as exploring lesser known pieces and commissioning new works and arrangements from local composers.

Originally formed as a quintet the consort now boasts a large repertoire of concert music for up to 18 players in various instrumental combinations.

Highlights of past performances include a “Songs of Praise” broadcast on BBC television and radio, a concert in the presence of the Princess Royal in St Mary Redcliffe Church and a concert in Bristol Cathedral to celebrate the launch of the “Matthew”, the Bristol built replica of the ship that John Cabot took across the Atlantic in 1497.

The ensemble has also recently performed Elgar Howarth’s virtuoso arrangement for brass of Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition – twice in Bristol and once in Weston Super Mare, and has also recently performed the equally demanding Eric Crees arrangement of Leonard Bernstein’s West Side Story at St. George’s Bristol.

The ensemble has some of the most experienced brass players in the Bristol area amongst its members but we also seek to encourage and develop new talent

Alex Taylor

Alex Taylor is a genius with a loop pedal… and his voice is stunning”  Metro

Bristol based singer/songwriter and multi-instrumental loop pedal artist. Already compared by reviewers to the likes of Bill WithersJohn Martyn and Jeff Buckley, Alex Taylor is one of the shining lights of the acoustic scene and a troubadour of world-class standing.

When you see him perform live, prepare yourself for an energetic and passionate vocal performance, dextrous and original acoustic playing and some dynamic loop pedal trickery for good measure.

Drawing on varied influences from a wide musical spectrum, Alex’s unique style splices elements of soul, nu-folk and electronica to place his powerful-yet gentle, shape‐shifting voice firmly in the spotlight.

A festival favourite, Alex recently headlined the BBC Stage at Bristol Harbour Festival, and has played many other stages including Cambridge Folk Festival and Cheltenham Jazz Festival.

Touring extensively, Alex has notched hundreds of gigs with previous support slots including Jack SavorettiRoachford and Michael Kiwanuka.

His critically acclaimed debut album features performances from members of The InvisibleNewton Faulkner’s bandPortishead and Massive Attack.

With more festivals and tour dates in the pipeline, and a brand new studio album set for release in the summer, 2018 is looking good for Alex Taylor.

Alex Taylor [Reviews]

“Sublime… Buckley-esque singer songwriter” 

 Time Out

“Echoes of Bill Withers’ jazzy folky soul” 

– Q Magazine

“The burnished baritone… who sounds like a calmer, more soulful Sting” 

– The Guardian ****

“Dynamic solo shows, using pedals and loops 

to create a wall of sound” 

 Maverick Magazine ****

“Taylor throws the kind of twistedly beautiful shapes on acoustic guitar that recall John Martyn, while his voice is a scratchy, committed thing that can walk across a falsetto tightrope with poise or howl like a wounded animal. An impressive introduction” 

– R2 Magazine 

“A singer songwriter with a compelling voice… Alex Taylor’s songs are finely crafted and topped off with interesting guitar arrangements, all of which adds up to a fine performer”

– Venue Magazine

Big Hat No Cattle

Stuart, a singer in Los Yanquis left sin city( Bristol) and moved across the border into Wales. He got acquainted with his new neighbour, a dyed in the wool rock musician, and forced him to like country music.

Since those pioneering days he and Ken have expanded the duet into a tight four-piece, with Rob “Livestock’ Davies added on guitar and Ian Hamilton on bass.

Their trademark  is high energy country blues, with tight three- part harmonies.

Things have moved fast, and after early cracking gigs with great responses, the band headlined The Chepstow Beer Festival (a tough crowd) and stormed it, they are delighted to be playing their first Bristol gig in The Eldon House one of their favourite venues.

Start polishing up your dancing shoes, the boys from Big Hat No Cattle are in town.
