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.
Dizraeli is a Bristol-born rapper, poet and musician. Although rooted strongly in hip-hop traditions, his work draws inspiration from old folk music,
recognising the common ground shared by songs of the people from any point in history.
“touching, funny stories of riots, atheism and Englishness though folk, rap, spoken word and hymns. (Dizraeli) embodies 21st Century folk” The Independent
Dizraeli has performed at Glastonbury, Latitude, The Eden Project and The Royal Festival Hall among countless others. He has won both the Farrago UK Slam Championships and the BBC Radio 4 Poetry Slam, and written several hip-hop plays including the award winning ‘Rebel Cell’, with Baba Brinkman.
“Folk or hip-hop? I don’t know, but Dizraeli makes me realise how wonderful it is to hear real English – fluent, witty and arresting” The Times
Dizraeli & The Small Gods were shortlisted for the 2014 Songlines Music Awards for their album ‘Moving In the Dark’. Tracks from the album have been played on BBC Radio 2, Radio 3 and 6 Music. In 2015 they collaborated on a new video for the title track, with the BAFTA-nominated director Jamie Magnus Stone.
In 2016 Dizraeli released his EP ‘Eat My Camera’ and continues to tour as a solo artist with a searing honesty and a flagrant disregard for the limitations of whatever genre he finds himself in.
Elphara is the alchemy between a voice and a violin. His musical universe is a mosaic of folk, Celtic and classical music with an original and sparkling poetic grain.
Graduate of the Royal Conservatory of Music in 1997, Elphara left his native Belgium and moved to London where he teaches the violin and plays in the underground as well as in pubs and festivals (Shetland Folk Festival, Sydemouth Festival, National Theater)…
In 2000 following the recording of his first album, South Kensington, Elphara slung his violin over his shoulder and set off in search of new experiences. A year on the roads of India, Japan, China… After several years writing new material, a series of live recordings at Hampstead Church gave him the opportunity to explore vocally as well and encouraged him to write lyrics for some of his compositions.
**Please Note: The concerts are all outside and all weather affairs thus full waterproofs are highly recommended and warm clothes. There is a wet weather contingency in the case of forecast rain only.
