Orient Express

Orient Express play a mixture of Turkish traditional folk and modern day songs, many of which their lead vocalist – Sevilay Ataseven Turlington – learnt when she was growing up in Turkey. Their music includes songs from the Balkan borders and the Black Sea area of Turkey, and the occasional Arabic song.

Other band members are Richard Bousfield, Helen Bousfield and Jonathan Mears, who all bring their own influences, to the musical melting pot. Instruments featured include bouzouki, guitar, fretless bass, kemanche, tarhu, Cretan lute, concertina, flute and percussion.

The Fiery Dragon Company

The Fiery Dragon Company is a group of five musicians based in and around Bath who came together in January 2018 to perform the music of the group’s leader, Anne Gregson. This is lyrical, melodic music with strong folk and classical influences (much of it inspired by Bath and composed when she recently studied at Bath Spa University) played with conviction by a group of talented and committed musicians.
