Lunchtime Concert with Juan Gabriel Gutierrez


Lunchtime Concert at St Stephens

St Stephen’s Church, St Stephens Street, Bristol

Although they’ve been running a while, this was the first lunchtime concert that i’ve made at St Stephens and what a great one to start off with. Juan Gabriel used a range of instruments including his voice to create a beautiful meditative sound scape.

Chanting and throat singing were blended with singing bowls, bells and didgereedoos as the sound rose and fell in this acoustic friendly church and it was the perfect antidote to a hectic morning. I felt much more peaceful and centred afterwards. My favourite instrument was the ocean drum which sounds like rain or breaking waves when played.Big thanks go to Juan for creating this little oasis of calm and exquisite music in a chaotic world. Bravo! Just one small critisism – more cushions on the pews please!

St. Stephens next lunchtime concerts are:

17th Nov – CPS – songs of a recovering alcoholic.

24th Nov – Bulawayo Zimbabwe dance music with Cecilia Ndhlovu.

    Thanks, Sarah. It was a brilliant concert, indeed.

    I could not believe that the Farmers’ market was several feet away – I felt transported to another world of shamans and nature sounds.

    Thanks for shout-out for Saint Stephen’s.
