Bridgwater Guitar and Bass Group

Do you play Guitar or Bass?

Do you own one but never really learnt?
Do you know someone who could lend you one so you could try it out?
Are you an experienced player who wants to connect with others?

Whether learning your first three power chords or blowing the dust off your 30 year old Stratocaster, our group caters to all levels and interests!


This group started in Aug 2022 having first formed for a Clashmob – in February 2022 – 30 local musicians from around Sedgemoor gathered round Blake statue at the Cornhill in Bridgwater for a pop up performance of ‘should I stay or should I go’ as part of International Clash day. Clashmob returned on 4 Feb 2023! and the group has also performed Christmas concerts with plans for more public outings this summer!

New members of all skill levels are always very welcome!
