Frome Busks is hitting the streets in style

Frome’s favourite busking competition will be taking over the town’s streets on 30th March with a full and exciting line up. 

The young artists, all under the age of 25, will bring a selection of different styles to the day from folk rock to classical guitar and everything in between, so there is definitely something for everyone.

 Frome Busks will kick off at 11am at a variety of Frome’s iconic locations around the town centre, including: King Street, Cheap Street, The Boyle Cross, Catherine Street, and The Westway.  

 Each act will perform a 20-minute set before rotating to the next location, so music fans will get plenty of time to listen to them all, while exploring the town’s shops and streets.

 The judges, who include Al O’Kane, Frome town councillor and musician, James Eller, long time bass player for The The and Chris Whitten, a drummer who has toured with Paul McCartney and Dire Straits, will then deliberate and announce the winner at 2.30pm at 23 Bath Street. 

The lucky winning act will be able to perform at a later date at 23 Bath Street, Sunrise Celebration Festival, supporting Ben Ottewell at Rook Lane, and given the chance to record at the Cheese & Grain’s new recording studio.

The acts bringing their voices and instruments to some of Frome’s most popular spots, include:

Clare Krige: Clare has been singing from a young age and writing her songs from the age of 18. She grew up listening to classic folk/rock and enjoys playing at open mics with her father and brothers.

Benjamin Hardy-Phillips: Benjamin is a performer in every sense of the word. He graduated from Rose Bruford Drama School, works for Magpie Dance facilitating movement for people with learning difficulties and plays acoustic guitar.

James Harriman: Returning performer, James takes a nostalgic 90’s Britpop sound and collides it with contemporary folk-rock influences creating a sound that brings old and new together.

Ben Hutcheson: Ben is an emerging folk-rock artist and songwriter. His lyrics tackle universal themes such as love and loss with a contemporary feel. 

Jake McGregor: Jake is a singer songwriter from the South West with over 8 years of performance experience. Jake wows audiences with his unique and intricate song writing and originality when it comes to covers.

Ollie Neilson: Ollie is a talented guitarist who plays a mixture of classical and modern music on acoustic, classical and electric guitars.
