About The Nest Collective

The Nest Collective (offspring of The Magpie’s Nest – BBC Folk Club of 2010) – has grown to become London’s place to go for discovering the amazing resurgence in music being made under the banner of ‘New Folk, Old Folk & No Folk’. Formed in 2006, The Nest Collective hosts regular events, creating platforms for traditionally-inspired British and World artists from both emerging and established backgrounds. Musicians and audiences alike come for our unique intimate and un-pedestaled environment, no matter which venue, for the making of music and the opportunity to be part of a shared experience.
