CAMPFIRE CLUB RETURNS FOR 2017:
Every Friday from May to September
A concert like no other… unamplified, outdoors and round a fire; surely this is the only way to really hear music.
Since the dawn of song, by the flickering embers and starry skies all walks of man and woman have gathered in song and celebration, to tell the stories and while away an evening. This is how it was, and at London’s Campfire Club, how it still is; acoustic, intimate. Every Friday from late spring right through to autumn we indulge you in the specially sourced talents of local and itinerant musicians from all over the world, nestled in several secret secluded leafy pockets of inner city London. Bringing the Nest Collective’s finest choices of artistry from the realms of folk, traditional and world music right through to contemporary song makers. Those that find it know something very magical is being felt and heard.
Keeping the campfire alive will be Nest Collective hosts and live music from some very special guests. Season’s acts include:
Rachel Sermani | Samana | Kaia Kater | Piers Faccini | Bush Gothic | Kentucky Cowtippers | TEYR | Leon Rosselson | L’Hijaz Carr | Kit Hawes & Aaron Catlow | Kusanganisa AND MORE TBA

**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!

Raw energy, modern writings, Mediterranean sounds, and nothing you’ve heard before… Led by Grégory Dargent, the musicians of Hijâz’Car pull together their vision of the poetry of the modern Eastern world, strong with 15 years touring the world, their different paths bound with friendship, and their original instrumentation: oud, tarhu, bass clarinet, doublebass and percussions.
“Probably the best album I’ve heard so far this year” fROOTS (UK)
Their first instrumental record – after the success of their collaboration with Houria Aïchi “Riders of the Aurès” – has been reviewed in the major European medias as an outstanding work of art. L’Hijâz’Car follows its path on tour, presenting its repertoire in major festivals and venues, both into jazz (Jazzahead, Jazz & the City Salzburg, WinterJazz Brussels..) and world music (Womad UK, EthnoPort Poznan, Suds, in Arles..).
L’Hijâz’Car, music without borders.
“2nd best album ever made by their label Buda Musique” SONGLINES (UK)
e5 Bakehouse is an organic bakery, cafe and shop spread over three railway arches in Hackney. Everything they make, bake or sell embodies their passion for artisan methods, organic local products and delicious food. We mill their own flour on site and are on a mission to make sourdough bread exclusively with UK grain. Their spruced up urban backyard, home to some of our Campfire Club events, has been transformed into an evolving kitchen garden, and makes for an atmospheric and unique events space.
