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.

"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

Blue Rose Code
Edinburgh born Ross Wilson spent his creative formative years in East London, then moved to South England “to be by the sea’s energy” but it is in his homecoming that he has found where his heart is. Life wasn’t always simple for Wilson. “I have swapped one type of chaos for another” says Wilson.
A nomad both geographically and musically, Ross writes from the heart eschewing any specific genre and the twelve songs on new album The Water Of Leith, addressing themes of love, loss, travel, home, accepting the past and embracing the future, are painted with colours of folk, jazz, soul and pop; an eclecticism that has become a hallmark of Blue Rose Code and has seen him compared to John Martyn, Van Morrison and Tom Waits.
Wilson cites taking his last drink as the start of living rather than the end of the drinking. Now a committed enthusiast and creative whirling dervish, Wilson has seen the past few years produce some of his most exciting work including the album ‘THE BALLADS OF PECKHAM RYE’, which was nominated for the prestigious Scottish Album Of The Year Awards in 2014 and featured a roll-call of remarkable talent, including Danny Thompson, Karine Polwart, John Wetton, Aidan O’Rourke and Kathryn Williams.
The Blue Rose Code game has certainly changed, they are heard regularly in session for the BBC (TV and Radio), STV, Alba, TG4, Virgin Radio. Live performance is where Blue Rose Code connects strongly with their audiences, they have toured the length and breadth of the UK selling out venues wherever they go and leaving a trail of fans in their wake. Featured in festivals Celtic Connections, Edinburgh Fringe, Looe, Summer Isles, Lindisfarne, Southern Fried, Underneath The stars.
Ross Wilson has spent most of his musical life curating; he sculpts his band to every mood and temperament in order to create the perfect happening. As the man at the helm of Blue Rose Code, he is, part director, part sculptor...total chameleon.
A real discovery! This acoustic duo fed on early blues is playing folk music coming from elsewhere. Using strange and unusual music instruments such as the mongolian lute or the kalimba, the duo creates music linking the USA to Central Asia, Africa and the Mediterranean. Gautier’s growling voice echoing Marias’s celestial harmonies are telling us strange and wonderful stories that could have happened to us.
