Ear Trumpet Music is an independent music curation and promotion company based in Bristol. We curate several venues and events as well as run a small agency representing a variety of interesting artists.

We currently run a bi-monthly Folk Club at Bristol’s Wardrobe Theatre where we aim to promote great folk and roots artists from all around the world as well as attracting a diverse audience of all ages.



For the past 8 years we have curated the live programme for a number of Bristol venues – The Canteen, No.1 Harbourside, The Old Market Assembly – We carefully amalgamate the best local acts from across the music spectrum with new music we unearth as well as being the go to for touring artists nationwide and across the globe, weaving them into the wonderful cultural ecosystem already in place.

Valley Fest

We also curate music for larger festivals and events.  We currently programme the majority of acts for Valley Fest a fantastic sustainable music festival on a community owned organic farm in the heart of South Bristol’s Mendip Hills. We also curate the music for the award winning local food event Eat Drink Bristol Fashion.
