Sam Brookes + Murmuration Choir

— Saint Stephen's Church
Legendary British Folk Artist, in Collaboration with Bristol's Contemporary Music Choir
price: Tickets Below


Bristol's contemporary music choir share their 2nd public performance in collaboration with legendary British folk artist, Sam Brookes, for an evening of 6-Music inspired vocal arrangements, in the central Bristol music hub of St. Stephen's Church. Come escape the Brexit nonsense, and be transported to a better place where people harmonise.


Sam Brookes is reminiscent of Tim Buckley as he glides between the lower and upper registers of his four-octave range. His pure voice, evocative lyrics and soaring melodies have made him a rising figure in the alt-folk scene.

Inspired by the British and American folk revivalists of the 60's, a sixteen-year-old Brookes began to write and perform while training as a gilder in his late father's workshop. By his mid-twenties, Brookes had begun to receive serious critical recognition, his self-released album, Kairos, being acclaimed by The Independent as one of the stand-out records of 2014. Now in demand as a vocalist and collaborator, the long list of artists Brookes has worked with includes Scott Matthews, Lucy Rose, Newton Faulkner and Basement Jaxx.

Tempus, released 3rd May, sees Sam rework Kairos’s most arresting, intimate songs into richly layered acoustic versions with the help of producer Laurence Love Greed and some of the UK’s finest session players.


“He excels at propulsive, narratively rich folk, delivered in a soaring, clear-as-a-bell singing voice” - The Sunday Times

“There are vast emotional reserves at work” - The Independent

“A stunning work on so many levels” - Folk Radio



A 60 voiced, advanced choral project, that brings together a collective of established Bristol singers, with all the heart of a community choir, delivered with honed artistry. Inspired by musical pioneers of neo-soul, trip-hop, indie, experimental, electronic, and alternative contemporary pop, this project aims to celebrate progressive music making, breathing further life into its potentiality with the power of voice, and collaboration.

Tonight we will be performing works by James Blake, Jill Scott, Imogen Heap, Lamb, Laura Mvula, Blockhead, Soloman Grey, and Sam Brookes. Directed and arranged by singer-songwriter, producer, and choral conductor, Isolde Freeth-Hale, with support from Bristol beatboxer, Jack Salt.



£15 adv. + booking fee.
7.00 pm doors. Music from 7.30 pm.
Local craft ale bar, including wine and cider.

Please arrive early for seating, and no later than 9 pm, as we will be filming on the night, and need to ensure minimum disruption. Thanks ♥
