The Sound of the Streets
Street Band Day in Bridgwater
The Sound of the Streets brings Bridgwater to joyful musical life on Sunday 29 October 29, with some great street bands along with glorious food and the chance to join in the musical fun.
The Sound of the Streets is all about public joy and participation and wants to get people dancing and singing. The day is part of the Animating Bridgwater project, and is run by the Sound of the Streets working with Bridgwater Independent Market. With food, music, drinks, dancing and singing, there will be something for everyone – a touch of Halloween spice and the chance to party before the Carnival weekend. The bands will be playing on Cornhill at the top of Fore Street.
With an amazing range of music, from street funk, brassy pop covers, gospel, samba and traditional English sounds, the day features 2 great bands. Ilu Axé, a dynamic group of women Samba-Reggae drummers, based in Bristol UK and Marseille France, Ilu Axé are always imaginative, vibrant, inclusive and empowering. Tongues of Fire are an 8-piece band, based in the South West, blowing up a musical storm of brass, reeds and percussion.
