Preview: Annual New Year Ceilidh & Nest Collective Takeover @ Southbank Centre (London, 1st & 2nd January 2016)


January is usually a month of low spirits, so why not buck the trend by dancing your way through those first few days of the new year?

This Friday and Saturday afternoons, the Clore Ballroom on the bottom floor of the Royal Festival Hall will be at the mercy of the folk tunes and world music of London’s Nest Collective, Ceilidh Liberation Front and – in true Southbank style – it’s all completely free of charge.

A hub for traditionally-inspired British and World music artists and headed-up by English folk singer Sam Lee, The Nest Collective (BBC folk club of the year 2010) fix their gigs on a ‘new folk, old folk, no folk’ basis, ensuring that every gig has something for everyone. With some fabulous fiddles and at least a little audience participation on the cards, what’s to stop you popping your head in for a song or two?
