Summer Sundays

Join us on Sunday afternoons this Summer as we celebrate the glory of Oudolf Field by inviting some of the South’s most talented performers to entertain us in and around the Radić Pavilion. Sunday 29 July For our first performance we are delighted welcome Chris Jagger’s Acoustic Roots. The Somerset-based younger brother of Rolling Stone Sir Mick, Chris Jagger has pursued his own musical career for many years with strong performances of original American country-influenced, cajun and blues-tinged material. Joined by bass player David Hatfield and violinist Elliet Mackrell, this trio is sure to entertain with a lively afternoon set of individual tunes, harmonies and great fiddle playing.

Sunday 5 August Razzomo are a gypsy folk duo that mix Balkan and Irish fiddle, with booming guitar beats. The Bristol based duo played their first gig together whilst travelling in Thailand and have since played numerous gigs in the UK and India, as well as through parts of Asia and Europe. They are both also part of Mr Tea and the Minions, and have played at many festivals and gigs around the UK and beyond! Sunday 12 August We are excited to be hosting Captain Cactus & the Screaming Harlots for our third performance in the Radić Pavilion. The nine-piece band plays a whirlwind of folk blues Americana groove with harmonies. Come dance and sway with us to their tales of whiskey, woe, zombies, and love. Sunday 19 August Conjuring up the mood of 1930s Paris, fused with the energy of a campfire jam session, The Schmoozenbergs bring bouncy rhythms, jaunty melodies and their own little bit of special sauce to create an irresistibly upbeat gypsy swing sound. Two duelling guitars, a violin, and a double bass come together to make a lively show full of catchy tunes, intricate musical interplay and playful improvisation. Since forming in 2012, this Bristol based band have been delighting audiences far and wide from festivals (including Glastonbury, Shambala and Green Man), to neighbourhood bars, arts centres and street corners. Their timeless music is guaranteed to put a smile on your face and a spring in your step.

Sunday 26 August Our final act of the season is the captivating Back Before Breakfast. Veterans of the festival scene, the group includes three accomplished singer-songwriters who perform their extraordinarily diverse body of work as a five piece band featuring flute, bouzouki, guitars, bass, and drums. Performances will take place from 2 pm. Refreshments available to purchase from Roth Bar & Grill. These are free events, no booking necessary.
