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

Kusanganisa is the Shona word for ‘mixture’ that aptly describes this new music project involving four musicians all from different traditions.
Chartwell Dutiro (from Zimbabwe) plays mbira and sings and has been brought up in the Shona tradition; Leandro Maia (from Brazil) is a guitarist, singer and composer; Nick Sorensen (from England) is a saxophonist whose music is located within the traditions of contemporary jazz and folk music and Chris Blanden (from England) is a bass player who has spent years playing rock music and previously worked at Real World Studios.
