Campfire Club 2017 Weekly Series Launch | Samana
Fri 5 May 2017, 19:30 – 23:30 BST
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

Samana comprises of artist and poet, Rebecca Rose Harris and producer and multi instrumentalist, Franklin Mockett. Their music is an amalgamation of unique philosophies, emotions and experiences forged from their time together living on the road. Travelling through the remote corners of Europe, the music was composed in the depths of isolated forests, upon the peaks of mountains and on the endless golden grasslands of rural farmlands. Throughout their voyage, they performed intimate shows in ancient churches, peoples homes and on the streets of passing towns and villages. After returning to England, the duo took residence in an old farmhouse in Wales where they have composed their work in their analogue studio THE ROAD RECORDS. Their first EP Requiem has been critical acclaim and is being championed by Norman B as “the essential EP of 2016 with nothing being as original or as satisfying as Samana’s Requiem EP.” The two have since collaborated with members of Unkle on an album ‘My Eye On You’ featuring artists including Nick Cave, Waren Ellis, Trentemoller and Steve Mason to be released in April 2017 with BMG.
