The Old Duke is a music venue situated on the cobbled King Street in the heart of Bristol. Named after Duke Ellington, the pub has become world famous for it's live traditional, New Orleans inspired Jazz music.

More recently the pub has added Blues and more modern Jazz bands to its program and now has live music on every night of the week and on Sunday lunch times.

My Home of Music 

A brand new documentary series kicks off this September on BBC Radio Bristol. Broadcast every weeknight at 6.15 on BBC Radio Bristol, 'My Home of Music' tells the personal stories of musical homes in the West. 

And we have been featured! 

Throughout the series, locations will range from The Old Duke, The Glen and The Granary to Russ Conway's childhood home and the Bristol Institute of Modern Music. The programmes will also be telling the story of those less likely musical homes, such as Twerton Park, Milsom Street in Bath and music therapy at St. Peters Hospice.

See this 'My Home of Music' video of The Old Duke in Bristol.

BBC Radio Bristol invites people to visit the Colston Hall throughout the series and record their message.Visitors will also be able to listen to some of the pieces on the BBC Radio Bristol Theatre Jukebox in the Glass Room. 

Listeners can also tweet @myhomeofmusic or email
