The Nest Collective invites you to enjoy a beautiful outdoor concert with Jenny Sturgeon and Balladeste.
Every week from June to September, we gather in beautiful green spaces across London 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.
Jenny Sturgeon is a singer-songwriter “who brings together the old and new with a rare skill” (R2 Magazine). Her music is rich with imagery and her songs are bound together by common threads of folklore, nature and the connection people have with the wild.
A collaboration between Preetha Narayanan (Violin) and Tara Franks (cello), string duo, Balladeste, explore the versatility and sound potential of just two string instruments. With traces of contemporary minimalism, Indian classical and folk, the duo co-creates all original compositions that are vibrant and experimental yet melodic and filmic in quality – songs without words with a contemporary alt-folk twist.
