This summer join us by the campfire to hear extraordinary music live from the comfort of your homes.
Each broadcast will be presented by your host, folk singer Sam Lee, who will introduce you to the two artists performing around the campfire on that evening. We are thrilled to share the line up of outstanding artists who we will be featuring across the series:
We are very excited to be bringing the magic of music and nature to you during these housebound times. Your digital ticket will grant you access to the private video stream, live on the evening and for a period of three days following the live broadcast.
These online shows are a lockdown alternative to our much-loved Campfire Club series, which would usually run throughout the summer in London and other cities across the UK. If lockdown easing and regulations allow, we hope to be able to open these Campfire Club gigs to limited live audiences, safely distanced and safeguarded. If this is possible, we will be offering our digital ticket holders priority booking to live tickets for this limited number of summer gigs, which would take place in beautiful green spaces in London, Bristol and Sheffield. Watch this space...
Poet, producer, MC and multi-instrumentalist, Dizraeli is a genre all of his own. In the past few years, having composed the soundtrack for parallel-universe drama Tripped on E4, won the BBC Poetry Slam Championship and led the groundbreaking band Dizraeli & The Small Gods to underground success, he has built himself a cult following around Europe and played to audiences of thousands around the world. He’s supported Saul Williams and Mos Def on their UK tours, worked with Kate Tempest and Scroobius Pip and had his music played on BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra, Radio 2, Radio 3, Worldwide FM and 6Music. His 2019 album The Unmaster was made after 3 years studying percussion in Senegal, immersing himself in the world of London grime and bass music, working with refugees in Calais and finally, living through a mental breakdown, and was his first self-produced album showcasing an electrifying new sound.
“A brave and wildly different sound… startling” – Tom Robinson, 6 Music
“A vital, poetic voice in UK rap” – The Line of Best Fit
Kitty Macfarlane is a Bristol-based songwriter and accomplished guitar player. Her sharply observed narrative songs are pure poetry, rich with visual imagery and written with an eco-eye – bound loosely by the theme of mankind’s relationship with the wild. This autumn sees the release of Kitty Macfarlane’s highly anticipated debut album Namer of Clouds, produced by Sam Kelly and Jacob J Stoney and featuring a recognisable cast of musicians.
Gathering inspiration from the sky to the seabed, Kitty’s lyrics touch on intervention and rewilding, climate change and migration and one singular song which is a magical aural tapestry of woman’s historical relationship with textiles and the land. From the starling murmurations on the Somerset Levels to the lowly eel’s epic transatlantic migration, and the small part we ourselves play in a much bigger picture.
“Her remarkably accomplished debut album, Namer Of Clouds, beguiles with its poetry and tenderness” – Guardian
