Live Music in Clifton

We are very lucky in Bristol to have a whole range of creative talent and the live-music scene is no exception. From jazz, folk, hip-hop and acoustic sessions to swing, reggae and big bands – the selection is diverse and there is scope to sound out something you love! Whether you are looking to sit down and listen, dance until the early hours or even join in – Bristol will have something for you. Below are a few artists we don’t think you should miss:


Armed with a guitar and killer voice – Sebastian Hawley is one to watch. In the above video he is performing at The Square as part of the Square Sessions run by Bristol-based Audio Bay Management. This is a regular event and is a great showcase of some of the best acts from around the region.


Audio Bay Management’s next Square Sessions instalment is alternative folk singer-songwriter Kevin Pearce – who is taking the nation by storm. See him live at The Square on Wednesday 12 October, book tickets here.


Izzy Thomas is a UK artist that confidently projects an eclectic sound of rock & soul. With a current electronic twist, her blended powerhouse vocals are unmissable and something to behold live. Izzy is performing as part of ILUVLIVE on Tuesday 11 October. Book tickets here.


Another star ILUVLIVE act is Joshua Luke Smith – who is fast gaining a reputation as having an important voice at a very young age. As a craftsman lyricist and a captivating song writer, it is no wonder that his independently released music has been well received. The 25 year old’s debut EP secured a top ten position in the international iTunes Hip Hop/Rap charts only hours after being released. See him this October – book here.


The popular Cornish singer-songwriter Steve Jones is performing as part of The Poetry Revue event on Tuesday 25 October, alongside the exhilarating and word-wild Yorkshire poet Paul Hewitt. This should be a creative combo! Click here to buy your tickets.

This nine-piece brings their original blend of horn-fuelled styles, built on Ska/Hip-Hop/Jazz and Latin grooves to The Square for a party to remember.
