Fridays Campfire has Sold Out – there will not be any tickets on the door. Lots more Campfires coming up over the next few months:
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.
Line up: 10th June
Described as ‘one of the most exciting new music groups around at the moment’, iyatraQuartet work collaboratively, drawing on a diverse range of influences to create original instrumental music. The London-based group explore Indian raga, traditional folk song, medieval plainchant and extended percussion techniques through improvising as a quartet of violin, cello, clarinets and percussion.
‘Exquisite polyphony…certainly a journey worth joining’ 4 star review, Songlines Magazine
iyatraQuartet recorded a debut album, ‘This World Alone’, in November 2015, recorded in the Union Chapel, London. The inspiration for ‘This World Alone’ evolved through working and performing with musicians and artists in London’s rich cultural scene. Expect a vibrant and colourful journey.
