Gurt Lush Choir

Gurt Lush Choir was founded in October 2009 by Sam Burns and is known as The Mighty Lush. Within two years we grew to be one of the largest and most remarkable open-access choirs in the country, known for our ambitious repertoires and fearless performances.

We have a track record of innovative collaborations and have worked on many joint projects with composers, musicians and theatrical venues. We love to champion new works, and have a reputation for sourcing extreme and exciting a cappella world music. We even once sang in the dark in the Staple Hill Tunnel for an Australian project known as Galaxy of Suns. The Lush performs regularly to sell-out crowds at a variety of Bristol venues. We regularly enjoy street busking, carol singing and charity performances of all kinds. We have taken part in national and international choir festivals including the CoMa Festival where we performed I am Swimming, a new work by Nigel Osborne reflecting the experiences of refugees. In 2018, Gurt Lush and BMC debuted a suite of 20 songs commemorating the centenary of the end of the First World War – culminating in a special performance on Armistice Day, at Bristol Museum. We also enjoy singing with other choirs, and have performed with: Gasworks Choir, People of Note, Bristol Male Voice Choir, Great Western Chorus, Magnificent AK47s, Gordano Chorus, Penny Brohn Choir, St Mary Redcliffe All-Star Orchestra and Youth Choir and West Wicklow Voices.

We meet weekly in three venues across the city and always have room for more members. We’re welcoming, we have lots of fun and we’re not at all scary – but we do work hard. No audition – and three free taster sessions! For more information visit our website, find us on Facebook or follow us on Instagram and Twitter . You can also watch us in action on our YouTube page which also features our famous Bristol Bowie tribute video filmed entirely on location in Bristol.
