Event description

Description

This summer, The Nest Collective invites you to discover extraordinary music around the campfire.

Every week from May to September, we gather in beautiful green spaces under city skylines and listen to amazing music by artists from all over the world.

We come together in the simple way that people have done for thousands of years, around the fire with food, drink, music and each other. The performances are unamplified, allowing you to get up close and personal and hear the artists’ music in a very intimate way.

Limited £120 season tickets are available here


What the audience said:

"This event was phenomenal. I cannot wait until I attend another one… the musicians were something else. I certainly didn't feel as though I was in Peckham, but some enchanted woodlands" - Design My Night

“Walking into a wonderland of nature with beautiful music and people, it made me feel wonderfully elated.” - Jane S

“What a magical gig! Sat around a campfire in the beautiful @Glengall_Garden as the sun sets listening to @JGhedi & @PiersFaccini. Lovely lovely lovely @NestFolk #Peckham #CampfireClub” - @showmethemunny

David Gunawardana

It’s hard to say where David comes from. His family is from Sri Lanka and he comes from London but when you listen to his songs there is an other-worldly quality to them. It might be because of his mellifluous voice. It might be his light touch on his Martin guitar. Or it might be his beguiling tales of far-off forest glades, caves and towers, happy tribes challenged or dancing spirits. With the whispers of Gillian Welch and Anne Briggs hovering around him, he casts a spell with every performance.

​There is a disarming brightness about his presence and his devotion to his craft is clear for all to hear. David has played feature nights at different folk clubs and has been recorded by the Narrowboat Sessions and The Invisible Folk Club. David is unique - listen.
