Campfire Club: Rachel Newton
The Nest Collective invites you to enjoy a beautiful fireside concert with Rachel Newton.
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 Rachel Newton.
BBC Radio 2 Folk awards, Scots Trad awards, Scottish album of the Year, and Songlines Top of the World Editor’s Pick winning singer and harpist Rachel Newton specialises in interpreting traditional folk songs in both English and Scottish Gaelic as well as writing and performing her own instrumental pieces.
A skilled collaborator, Rachel is a founder member of the successful UK folk bands The Shee and The Furrow Collective. She also plays fiddle and viola and works across a range of performance platforms including theatre and storytelling.

The opening act for this show is Ruby Colley.
Ruby Colley is a violinist and composer. She creates instrumental soundscapes that are far beyond the realm of traditional playing, with the complex web of sound more akin to an electric orchestra.
