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!

Australian counter-culture folk band, Bush Gothic return to England to play the main stage at Homegathering, a festival curated by The Unthanks, plus a tour in support of their new single and music clip Jim Jones. With a 5 Star review in BBC Music Magazine and fRoots Album of the Year Runner Up 2016, Bush Gothic assert their rebellious intentions by lovingly re-arranging traditional Australian folk music until the unfashionable is transformed into daring beauty.
Defiantly modern, achingly old, this most daring of bands perform songs of criminal women and desperate men from an era of transportation, adventure and gold. The Guardian described fiddle-singer and band leader Jenny M. Thomas as an ‘Edgy rising folk star’ and together with double bassist Dan Witton and drummer Chris Lewis they will tour the UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand.
‘Masterful…inspired. Bush Gothic capture the dark heart in Australian folk songs.’ fRoots
‘A knowing postmodern aesthetic with arrangements that variously soothe, stir and surprise. Bush Gothic dive deep into the Australian national psyche and give its chain a yank’ – Songlines 4 STARS
‘Gorgeous and haunting…Bush Gothic are clued into the kind of reinterpretation that one might find in England’s new generation of folk performers such as Jim Moray.’ -RootsWorld
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.
