Campfire Club Special Events Unamplified

You’re invited to join in the Campfire Club! In time-honoured fashion we will gather around roaring blazes enveloped in music and entertainment. High spirits will be maintained with good ol’ sing-a-longs, storytelling, special guests and who knows what else. Every fire will be a unique event with a magic concoction of spontaneity, rare talents and the unknown, all drenched in the sepia tones of firelight and tinged with wooded aromas.

Tim Dalling’s Bonie Squad 

People struggle to find a term that suitably describes Tim Dalling in his many wondrous guises. Let’s just say that he’s a one of a kind, not simply as he’s a super-talented bloke, but also because he does it all with such remarkable panache.
 
Down the years, he’s brought tears to the cheeks of many incredulous audiences as the kilted accordion-playing fall guy with the now sadly defunct New Rope String Band…and stunned audiences with hugely-accomplished musicianship that lies at the very core of his massively-creative spirit.
 
Ian Carr and Neil Harland, two others who are highly regarded musicians, teamed up with him to record his latest solo CD, Eve’s Bonie Squad a release which prompted R2 magazine writer David Innes to declare: “He’s a genius.”

Rhona Dalling

Walk Me Round, the debut album from Tim’s daughter, Rhona Dallingas has captured hearts and minds with its resonant songwriting and tunesmithery. Although a qualified textile artist, she is most inspired at the moment by music-making. Growing up playing fiddle at home and with Kathryn Tickell’s Folkestra, then singing close harmonies with Northumbrian quartet Beckleberry she became excited about American oldtime, grabbed a banjo and a bunch of her own “devastatingly effective”(fRoots) songs tumbled out.

The Great Choir of London

The Great Choir of London is a dynamic, genre-fluid, and harmonious singing collective based in Hackney. Eclectic songs, electric outfits and excitable cheese and biscuit loving singers meet and combine beautifully.

**Please Note: The concerts are all outside and all weather affairs thus full waterproofs are highly recommended and warm clothes. A full bar will be stocked with home-made wines, ciders, ales and the odd drop of mead too!

What to expect...
