About this Event
Rediscover one of life’s simplest joys – the sharing of live music in the glow of a campfire.
Every summer, we gather in beautiful green spaces within cities to hear extraordinary music by artists from all over the world.
In the simple way that people have done for thousands of years, we come together around the fire to enjoy music, food, drink and the company of others.
For this Campfire Club we are delighted to present Tarren.
Tarren is an ambassador for high quality, English Folk music. Through the incorporation of minimalist musical forms into traditional-inspired material, Tarren is producing music that draws the listener in, weaving intricate themes throughout tunes and songs that have the pulse of English music at its heart.
Tarren is made up of Bristol-based artists Sid Goldsmith (Jimmy Aldridge & Sid Goldsmith, Awake Arise), Alex Garden (The Drystones, Harriet Riley & Alex Garden) and Danny Pedler (Pedler // Russell). They combine cittern and concertina, fiddle, and accordion to create their music.
The support act for this show is TBC.
English Folk Expo (EFEx) is a charity which supports the English folk, roots and acoustic music sector through a variety of projects and initiatives. They host festivals and events throughout the year to introduce the best folk, roots and acoustic music to new and existing audiences.
Campfire Club audiences say:
“Getting to hear live music after so long was deeply emotional and the feeling of collective spirit (especially now) was really powerful.”
“The sun setting over the garden and Thames and the amazing overall relaxed (yet ‘safe’) ambience of the event. Very moving to finally be at a live gig.”
“The beautiful venue, the beautiful music, the beautiful weather! Thank you so much.”
“This was my first live music event since the beginning of the year and, although the acts were brilliant, I think what will stay with me is the joy of being with people and enjoying the moment together. I feel very grateful to you all for putting on the event.”
“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”
“Walking into a wonderland of nature with beautiful music and people, it made me feel wonderfully elated.”
“The atmosphere was incredible, I knew I would love the music but I loved the atmosphere just as much.”
