Every year arguably the loveliest city in the UK hosts 16 days of the world’s best music.

This year the 2009 Bath International Music Festival runs from the 22nd May – 6th June.

With guests ranging from the Branford Marsalis Quartet to Ralph Stanley and His Clinch Mountain Boys, the Festival always offers some stunning performances and many suprises. The Guardian’s Festival Guide describes it as an “epic 16-day feast of jazz, classical, world and folk music.”

Society of Sound artists Justin Adams and Juldeh Camara are playing the Festival’s Closing Night Party on the 6th June. Their latest album, Tell No Lies,  was released today and has earned 5 stars in a Guardian review: “songs that echo the raw exuberance of the Clash, the rolling blues of Muddy Waters and the delicacy and grandeur of the ancient griot ballads…Magnificent.”

We have two pairs of tickets for you to win. Simply tell us why you want them here no later than 31st May.

    Am now an wheelchair bound OAP, and its 40 years since I attended Sidmouth or Cambridge Folk festivals, but would love to recapture some of the magic felt then with the knowledge and love of music that I have since acquired.

    Since joining Society of Sound I have listened to and enjoyed music I would never have come across before. I would love to hear JA and JC live and let their music transport me to another part of our world.

    I would love to see Justin Adams & Juldeh Camara play live. I listen to them all the time on blip.fm and repost all the tweets from real world about them. Going to the closing party would be not just a privilege, it would be an honour!

    Hi – Justin and Juldeh are guesting on the album below as well as the Dub Colossus crew that I recorded in Ethiopia (the below being done beforehand) – enjoy :)

    Hi everyone. For those of you who have been enjoying the B&W releases, I recorded the Ethiopian end of some of them, and also this one (latest review 5 stars) http://lastheplace.com/2009/08/17/invisible-system-punt-made-in-ethiopia/
    there is also a facebook group and page, myspace, and http://www.harperdiabate.com with album out on e.g. amazon.co.uk, play.com and many specialist record shops e.g. Sterns and Rough Trade etc. It is on itunes etc but I am considering offering it for download via our website at CD quality next. Big up to B&W who I remember from my Brighton days when Dickie first designed the Nautilus and Inner Field Sound System and remember listening to Massive Attack on it in his flat :) Enjoy the album – Invisible System – Punt (Made in Ethiopia) – Best Dan
