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

“WHAT ON EARTH IS THIS? IT’S BRILLIANT!” – STEVE LAMACQ, BBC 6MUSIC
ICHI takes the notion of one-man-band to new limits combining handmade instrument inventions with steel-drum, ping-pong balls & tape-loops.
ICHI moved to the UK after meeting singer-songwriter Rachael Dadd, now his wife, at a small festival in his hometown. He takes inspiration for his art from far and wide – a melting-pot of punk, reggae and dub, Henri Salvador, tribal music and old scratchy 78s.
“HILARIOUS AND BONKERS AND BRILLIANT” – LAUREN LAVERNE, BBC 6MUSIC
Singer and songwriter with London band Flying Ibex, BARNABY KEEN‘s music fuses Brazillian melodies with Beatle-esque psychedelia, African rhythms and nods to Thom Yorke and Jamaican reggae. Built around guitar, vocal and loops, what emerges is a unique, woozily catchy set of highly accessible world-music infused songs, all delivered with charismatic flair.
Glengall Wharf Garden
Tucked away from all the noise, based on a woodland ecosystem, Glengall Wharf is a community garden with a certain summerly charm.
64, Glengall Road, Peckham, SE15 6NF
We are at the eastern end of Burgess Park on the Surrey Canal Walk, about 15 minutes from Peckham town centre.
From Peckham, walk between the library and the Peckham Pulse (pool) and keep walking along the leafy Surrey Canal Walk. Continue under two bridges and eventually you’ll have the old wharf wall to your right. The garden is above that. Buses 63 / 363 to Trafalgar Avenue. Get off at the Waite St stop and walk back towards the Surrey Canal Walk. Buses Old Kent Road 21, 78, 53. 353, 172 stop 10 minutes walk from the garden up Glengall Road.
Fireside unamplified, forest housed, city centered, rebellious, ancient concerts lit by love.View Artist
