Celebrating London’s wild sanctuaries, away from the hustle and bustle of the city, Campfire Club is a quiet place to come together and listen.
“One of the best evenings I’ve had all summer. Perfect for a Friday night chill after a long week at work, a great starter to a longer evening out on the town, or a way to escape London for a minute and let music jet you off to… wherever you want to be really. A 10/10 thing to do and I’d recommend it to anyone. You could even bring your nan.” EastLDN
London Bulgarian Choir – an award-winning, vibrant, sociable and open-hearted group of singers embracing all nationalities, ages and abilities. Songs are arrangements of traditional and ancient Bulgarian songs. Some tell powerful tales of love and loss, fighting and celebration, while others are inspired by the daily fabric of life. Sung in a complex and unique vocal style, these folk songs have survived 500 years of Ottoman rule and 50 years of communist indoctrination to emerge with their extraordinary dissonant harmonies, exotic scales, compelling rhythms and exuberant trills and hiccups virtually intact. The choir’s spine-tingling performance of the songs transcends language barriers.
Harbottle & Jonas – stunning young folk duo from Devon whose music is eclectic and is always accompanied with a great story. The husband and wife duo combine the rich traditions of folk music with original and contemporary interpretations, through a blend of closely intertwined vocal harmonies.
