A One Equal Music Event

Saturday 2nd March 2024, 7:30pm | St Paul’s Church, Clifton BS8 1LP

Experience the acoustic gospel blues of the Band of Pilgrims and the luscious choral harmonies of the University of Bristol Church Choir as they explore the world of gospel and blues in the striking venue of St Paul’s Church Clifton.

Join these unique and talented groups on the well-trodden musical journey of blues players, traversing the low-lit Saturday night blues gigs before entering the streaming light of the Sunday morning church. Saturday Blues and Sunday Church will explore the relationships between blues and suffering, and the juxtaposition found in early gospel blues and joyful release in church. Find out more here.

TICKETS: By donation (suggested £5 minimum), available on Eventbrite or on the door.
