8 June, Chapel Arts centre Bath; Folk, Blues, Latin and reggae of Rik and Rainy, Enjoy the journey

Folk and blues of Rik van den Bosch and the laid back African and Latin folk and reggae grooves of Rainy.

Thursday 8 June, Rainy, local to the Bath and Bristol region, joins forces with globetrotting Dutch singer song-writer Rik van den Bosch at the Chapel Arts Centre in Bath.

Watch, listen and enjoy the journey.

Rik van den Bosch

Dutch folk and blues musician and globetrotting singer-songwriter Rik van den Bosch recently traded in Barcelona for Shoreham-by-Sea.

Rik draws from a wide influence of styles: original folk and blues sounds from way back, sixties’ rock ’n’ roll grooves, and up-to-the-minute pure rock rhythms - with a bit of gypsy and Spanish influence thrown in for good measure. Rik is a solo artist, armed with a variety of tools to create a full and interesting sound, from his slide and mouth harp, to his incredible vocal range. 

Rik is a storyteller, both in and between the songs in his set. Rik shies away from textbook techniques, settling outside the margins of academic art and making up his own rules. And he’s been doing this for a long time. At the age of seven he built his own guitar using a tin can, a chunk of wood and a nylon string.


"laid back grooves, sun soaked open roads and a healthy dose of wonder"

Rainy is a singer-songwriter and multi instrumentalist. He writes, records and performs all the music on his albums excluding the odd special guest appearance from friends. Rainy's song writing draws from a deep well of musical influences. African, Cuban and Latin grooves meet Folk, Blues and Reggae with the warm-hearted positivity of his lyrics. This laid back musical infusion makes Rainy one of the most watchable, listenable and dynamic songwriters you could hope to come across. His music has been described by many as G-Love meets Dave Matthews meets Paul Simon meets Crosby Stills & Nash - in truth it is essences of the all above... and something else entirely!
