To celebrate the launch of her third book 'Meditation Mind', acclaimed British artist Emily Maguire is presenting an evening of poetry readings and songs at St James Wine Vaults in Bath on Saturday 30 November.
Singer, songwriter, composer, poet, multi-instrumentalist and mental health advocate, Emily's five albums and two books have established her as truly a talent to be reckoned with.  With a remarkable, inspiring story to tell, she has been featured many times on Radio 2 and Radio 4, her thought-provoking lyrics, supremely expressive vocals and spellbinding live performances winning her fans across the globe.
Described as ‘exhilarating and transformational’ (RnR Magazine), Emily’s songs have the power to uplift, comfort and inspire in equal measure.  In November 2018, to celebrate the launch of ‘Meditation Mind’, a new book of poetry inspired by her Buddhist practice, Emily is performing a series of intimate gigs at bookshops, Buddhist centres and other venues across the country, reading her poems and singing songs on acoustic guitar accompanied by her husband Christian Dunham on double-bass. 
Emily will hold a short Q&A following the performance.
Songs, videos and Emily's story can be found at www.emilymaguire.com.
Ramshackle Orchestra Concert, Bath, 30th November 2018
7:30pm - 9:30pm

With the wonderful Seona Pritchard as their new Musical Director, this talented multigenerational string orchestra will be playing an eclectic repertoire ranging from lilting Celtic folk, passionate gypsy tunes, klezmer laments, contemporary world music to mysterious airs from Eastern Europe.
The orchestra has played at Bath’s Party in the City and other local festivals for the last six years and provides a platform for musicians of all ages.  Last year's concert at this hall in Larkhall drew a wonderful audience and was a great success.  Come along and join them for what should be another wonderful evening of live music, drinks and nibbles (a bar will be available)!
