Fri 7 July 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

>> 7th July - Campfire Club <<
Since forming in 2008, the Kentucky Cow Tippers have deservedly earned a reputation as one of the most exciting acts on the UK’s acoustic music scene. Their unique approach to bluegrass draws from a deep appreciation of every aspect ofthe genre: they’ve absorbed everything from gospel harmonies and traditional fiddle tunes to the progressive music of Béla Fleck and Punch Brothers. This foundation isbuilt upon through the arrangement of the band’s original material written primarily by Rupert Hughes, Sam Wear and Evan Davies, all experienced and passionate songwriters and by crafting refreshing renditions of classic bluegrass songs. The 3 founding members all hail from the North East of England and begun playing together by busking on the streets of Newcastle. In 2014, this core trio was augmented by American fiddler Niles Krieger and jazz bassist Sam Quintana. The result is a driving, energetic quintet that delivers a tight yet spontaneous stage show. If you enjoy close vocal harmonies, wild bluegrass improvisation, witty stage banter and brown corduroy jackets, then you’ll love the Kentucky Cow Tippers – just don’t ask about the name!
