The Soundbite Performance Programme brings a diverse range of live music to communal areas of the hospital and wards. We have been working with young musicians from Live Music Now (LMN) and musicians from the Bath Folk Club (generously funded by the Joyce Fletcher Charitable Trust) and Bath Spa University, as well as other local musicians.
Using feedback from the live musical performances it is evident that staff, patients and visitors appreciate listening to live music and it has been noted that the music helps calm nerves and anxiety for patients having treatment or visitors waiting for a relative.

“Based in and around Bath, Somerset, we are The Gaulois Brothers and we have been described as a swinging, jazz guitar party. With an almost reckless insistence on real, in the moment, improvisation we are no purists, but Django Reinhardt is definitely the inspiration. The swinging rhythms and exciting sound of the Maccaferri guitars make for a great atmosphere evoking Gypsy campsites and Parisian cafés and nightspots.”
