mercredi 12 août de 17:15 à 19:00
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:
• Wednesday 12th August: The Hut People, Kadialy Kouyate
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...
Taking the audience on a musical journey around the World, English instrumental duo The Hut People (Sam Pirt and Gary Hammond) have firmly established themselves as one of THE best loved, entertaining and best-loved acts on the UK folk scene today.
Mixing global rhythms with folk tunes from Quebec to Spain, Scandinavia to Sussex and everywhere in between, this is a quirky celebration of our rich musical heritage – and it works so well!
“The festival season is nearly upon us, and with The Hut People gracing many of this years bashes, their infectious ‘World Folk’ will surely be winning them many new fans” – Songlines
Kadialy Kouyate is a musician, a singer songwriter inspired by the West African Griot repertoire. Born into the great line of Kouyate Griot in Southern Senegal, Kadialy’s mesmerising kora playing and singing style have been appreciated in many prestigious venues as both a soloist and in different ensembles.
Since his arrival in the UK Kadialy has played a significant part in enriching the London musical scene with his griot legacy. He has been teaching the Kora at Soas university of London for the last decade and he has also been involved in countless musical projects both as a collaborator and a session musician.
