Parent and Baby Choir 

Folks & Bairns is a parent and baby choir based at St Michael & All Angels church, Windmill Hill, South Bristol. The choir enables grown-ups to sing together in a relaxed and baby-friendly environment. It is run by Natural Voice Leader, musician and singer Rosie Sleightholme. Every voice is welcomed, no singing experience is necessary and all songs are taught by ear.

We're now on Summer break, and will be back in September 24.

““Folks and Bairns is my favourite part of the week. There’s something so wonderful about coming together to sing – food for the soul! I always leave feeling brighter after a good old sing song with some lovely parents and their babies. My baby is getting very used to being sung to sleep by a choir
I can’t recommend this highly enough. If you do one thing on parental leave… DO THIS!”
