The Nest Collective presents… Ceilidh Liberation Front, London’s most radical and colourful ceilidh band. Subverting and converting the world with their energetic new ceilidh regime, they breathe vigour and vitality into the traditional ceilidh, whilst honouring its roots and traditions.
West London's most creative new artist hub, Kindred Studios — a beautiful old school-turned-non-profit-studios for artists & makers, nestled quietly in between Portobello & Queen's Park, its stunning hall, decked with wooden floors & beams — is the perfect new West London home for the Nest Collective & it's troup of Ceilidh rebels.
«Sweat-busting abandon, subverted dances and party tunes» — Time Out
«Taking the traditional… ceilidh as its starting point, but ripping up the rule book, souping up the music and subverting the dance moves. No experience is necessary» — Londonist
United under the banner of The Nest Collective, the go-to for worldwide roots music, CLF is the brainchild of Mercury music prize nominee Sam Lee, who brought together some of the finest musicians and charismatic callers, with the most uplifting and inspiring tunes and dances. Their repertoire mixes the traditional with the brand new and sometimes spontaneous! They’ve torn up dancefloors at Southbank Centre, Sadler’s Wells, Glastonbury, and Wilderness, amongst many others. Combining music, dance, and a sprinkling of theatricals, this is ceilidh as you’ve never heard (or seen) it before. Don’t forget your dancing shoes.
