Campfire Club: Marry Waterson & Emily Barker |Cairi Jacks


This summer, The Nest Collective invites you to discover extraordinary music around the campfire.Every week from May to September, we gather in beautiful green spaces under city skylines and listen to amazing music by artists from all over the world.

We come together in the simple way that people have done for thousands of years, around the fire with food, drink, music and each other. The performances are unamplified, allowing you to get up close and personal and hear the artists’ music in a very intimate way.

Marry Waterson & Emily Barker

English folk royalty meets Australian soul in this new collaboration between Marry Waterson and Emily Barker. Their new album ‘A Window To Other Ways’ (One Little Indian) is full of fly-on-the-wall observations of the contradictions and disconnections of modern life.

“a charmer that slips between styles” – UNCUT

No strangers to collaboration, Waterson and Barker discovered an immediate kinship when they started writing together. The intriguing combination of Waterson’s poetic lyrics and Barker’s eclectic musicality has been shaped in the studio by musical polymath Adem Ilhan, with recording contributions from two of Barker’s live band: Lukas Drinkwater (bass and guitar) and Rob Pemberton (drums).

“the product of two revered musicians embarking upon an exciting, explorative journey, and a charmed collaboration” – Folk Radio UK

Serendipity worked her magic in bringing Waterson and Barker together. The resulting collection of songs pushes the boundaries of Barker and Waterson’s renowned roots styles, venturing into a diverse union of genres – contemporary folk, country and soul nestles comfortably alongside lilting indie and playful blues.

“a warm, endearing, endlessly humane collaboration between two potent voices” – CLASH

Cairi Jacks

Cairi is a folk singer and visual artist from Wales who explores themes of belonging, kinship and our relationship to land through a mixture of original compositions and traditional folk songs. Firmly rooted in the oral tradition, with fireside singing in her blood, and a craft honed through a capella harmony singing, she is now bringing the many threads of her practice together.

These songs are born from intimate sharing and exploring how collaborative creativity and singing together can be powerful tools for connection.
