Join us for a very special gospel concert on the Sunday of the festival, featuring the incredible London Community Gospel Choir.
We’ll be raising the roof for a Sunday service unlike any other as the London Community Gospel Choir combines with our very own Bristol Jazz & Blues Festival Chorus – featuring up to 300 singers drawn from community choirs across the South West – for a programme of traditional and contemporary Gospel classics.
From humble beginnings in 1982, the London Community Gospel Choir have risen to become one of the most sought after singing ensembles in Europe. Their wall of soulful sound is memorable, inspirational and a fusion of choir leader Bazil Meade’s two greatest passions, his music and his faith.
With a diverse and inclusive membership they are truly representative of the city they hail from and the first point of call for an impressive range of major recording artists including Madonna, Paul McCartney, Tina Turner and George Michael.
They have performed at prestigious venues like Wembley Stadium and the National Theatre and wowed audiences at the Brit and Grammy Awards.
A recent performance at the British premier of Martin Luther King biopic Selma won widespread critical acclaim and they even performed for The Queen on her 90th birthday. Well, if they’re good enough for Her Majesty.
