About Avon

The county of Avon has, of course, now been dissected into the four unitary authorities of Bristol, South Gloucestershire, North Somerset and Bath, and North East Somerset. Whilst this might make sense administratively and politically, for our purposes the geographical region of Avon is more convenient. Bristol, located fairly centrally in the region, dominates the communications and economy of Avon. The other large centres of population are at Bath and Weston-Super-Mare. South of Bristol the region is relatively quiet and unfrequented by holiday makers, giving an air of seclusion to this unspoilt area of undulating farmland and pleasant villages. There is some peaceful if un-dramatic walking country to be enjoyed in this part of Avon.

With Bristol's long history as a seaport, Bristol & Avon have been an entry point to the UK for imports of all kinds, including musical instruments. Sailors and travellers have brought musical influences back from around the world. This perhaps explains why Bristol has such a lively music scene and why there are so many violin and other music shops around the town, particularly in the older part of Bristol near the university.

Bristol has a lively pop scene, with party bands, function bands or covers bands performing in and around the area. If this isn't your style, then a jazz duo or ceilidh band, and for the afternoon, perhaps string quartet or harpist:

There are many experienced string quartets in avon to choose from. Bristol also has a lively Jazz scene. Have a look at jazz bands in avon Being surrounded by extensive rural areas, there is a strong folk tradition in and around Bristol, so have a look at some of our ceilidh bands in avon and barn dance bands in avon If you are thinking in terms of music for a wedding, take a look at our wedding quartets in avon
