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!

‘He has the passion of Brel, the commitment of Brecht and the wit of Lehrer’ Songlines
LEON ROSSELSON has been at the forefront of songwriting in England for over 50 years. His songs range from the lyrical to the satirical, from the personal to the political, from the humorous to the poignant. He has released 2 songbooks, 13 CDs & a 4CD box set spanning 5 decades of songwriting. He has toured Canada, the United States, Switzerland, Holland, Belgium and Australia and has performed at every conceivable venue around the country but never before at a campfire event so he is looking forward to this one. He has also had 17 children’s books published, the first of which, Rosa’s Singing Grandfather, was shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal in 1991.

The Norfolk Broads
The Norfolk Broads bonded over maritime work songs and failed romances in the alto section of the Trad Academy Sea Shanty Choir, deciding to form a girl-group during a long car ride to Cornwall in 2015. Since then, they have performed their spirited harmonies at festivals and venues in London and further afield, including the Cutty Sark, Wilton’s Music Halll, the Minack Theatre, and FolkEast 2016.
The Broads supply their repertoire of traditional stories with a very contemporary verve and energy, using old songs to fuel new takes on the lives of women both past and present.
“Young female quartet the Norfolk Broads are strong storytellers…Their close harmonies brought a witty feminist take to a well-curated set of tales of impotence, greedy landlords, and the joys of a single life.” ~ The Guardian
