ANITA DOBSON
Vocals

Anita is Road Not Taken's main vocalist and writer of original songs. She also acts as our unofficial administrator and we've occasionally let her loose with a kalimba at gigs. Anita's neighbours graciously put up with our practices!

In her day job, Anita works on the all-age ministry team at Christ Church in Downend.

ANT MILES
Guitar, Vocals

Ant mostly plays guitar in Road Not Taken, along with some vocals, and can also sometimes be found behind the harmonium or piano.

Ant runs Fancourt Music, a bookings agency working with the likes of Jim Moray and Lady Maisery, is Chairman of Downend Folk Club and works freelance for Musica with Claire.

CLAIRE HAMLEN
Fiddle

Claire is the latest addition to Road Not Taken, having joined the line-up in April 2016. Her soaring fiddle has been a joy to behold, while she also sometimes sings and plays harmonium.

Claire runs Musica Bristol & Surrounds, a Community Interest Company which provides workshops in care settings as well as for children.

JOE HAMLEN
Harmonium

Joe plays more instruments than most of us can name (with Road Not Taken alone he's played harmonium, bass guitar, banjo, mountain dulcimer, trumpet and guitar). He also recorded our debut EP and is our arranger-in-cheif of traditional material.

Joe also plays with brass ensemble Horning Glory.
