Campfire Club at Spitalfields City Farm
June 14, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Filling London’s green spaces with music, unamplified, outdoors, around a fire. A unique path for discovering music and London’s hidden green spaces, The Nest Collective’s outdoor summer series, Campfire Club takes you on a worldwide musical journey through the city. 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
Kaia Kater – African-Canadian roots phenom here to remind us of the troubled pathways of our own history. Born of African-Caribbean descent in Québec, Kaia Kater grew up between two worlds: one her family’s deep ties to Canadian folk music in her Toronto home; the other the years she spent learning and studying Appalachian music in West Virginia. “Where bluegrass meets Nina Simone” – The Guardian
John McGrath – Irish guitarist, composer and author based in London. His music explores the boundaries of the ancient and modern as traditional elements meet improvisation and experimental tendencies. Rich harmonics, intricate finger-picking, static drones and glitches combine to glorious effect.
