Previous acoustic festivals have been great successes:

The 11th Bristol Acoustic Music Festival got off to a noisy start with Samba Reggae & Street Drumming from Batala who played continuously for forty minutes and very soon had a crowd outside Colston Hall.

The Foyer and Lantern stages then started their programme with Heg  & The Wolf Chrous opening on the Foyer and Meet Your Feet on the Lantern stage, from there on it was wall to wall music of the highest calibre with sets on the Foyer stage from  Brian Inglis,  Scarlett Shocks,  Jessica Mary York, Fistful Of Spookies,  Galileo, Kezia,  Lazibyrd, Declan Millar,  Beth Rowley and the  Funkinsteins.

The Lantern stage was no less impressive with Cindy Stratton Band featuring Z’Bella Wolfhound, Stackfidge, Darren Hodge,  Roving Crows, Christina Maria & Aaron Douglas,  Chris Wood,  Richard Digance and finally finishing with Thea Gilmore.

Three workshops were also provided run by Paloma Horlar, Brian Inglis and Jason Flinter and all had a good attendance. The topics covered were Singing, Starting out in the Music Business and Songwriting.

On top there were a number of festival market stalls selling everything from guitars to clothing.
