The Baroness and the Bear are the nucleus of the band, often preforming as a duo and also as Rhythm Travellers with the very talented Paul "Bad Boy" Borley drums/percussion and the talented Steve Smith on Guitar.
We can also expand the band by adding other wonderful musicians "Rhythm Travellers" such as the very talented John William - lead guitar/flamenco, Lee Le Cornu - Drums and percussion, Myke Clifford - Flute and Saxaphone, Robert Hokum Dobra and Guitar, Sarah O Neil and Kevin Lowen - Violin and Wendy Benefer on Drums, Violin and Guitar! All very lovely people and awesome musicians.
Julie and Bob have also studied the History of the Blues with Exeter University, while performing songs in their own style many of the lyrics are steeped in history and reflect the original blues meanings that had no fixed genre when they were first documented.
Our Music appeals to an older audience who loved the alternative music of hippy generation.
Typical gigs include Folk Blues and Roots Festivals, Private and Corperate Functions, Gin Festivals and Pre Breakfast Wedding settings.
The spirit of The Baroness and The Bear is to share good times with lovely people.
