The Arts Barge Collective is made up of hugely talented and diverse musicians who excel in a number of genres. From Lindy Hop, through Jazz and Big Band, to psychedelic and funk – we’ve got your event covered. The specialism and adaptability of our musicians makes us an excellent choice for weddings, corporate events, and festivals.

We also offer solo pianists, singer-songwriters, acoustic guitarists, organists and duos for church and civil ceremonies, reception drinks and dinner music.





The Arts Barge Project

All of our musicians and artists are involved in the Arts Barge Project, an artist-led social enterprise working to create a social arts venue on a decommissioned cargo barge. The project provides opportunities for people to get involved in the arts together.

Since 2009 The Arts Barge Project has delivered diverse events and festivals, developing a wide network of musicians and performers. From this ever-increasing talent pool we’ve created a wonderful mix of bands and ensembles. Alongside our experienced professionals, we showcase some of the region’s best young emerging musicians.
