Run by promoter and musician Sam Lee, the Nest Collective hosts events in venues across London and at festivals stages across the UK. Their focus is upon the promotion of both British and world folk music within our contemporary music scene and creating new platforms and events which have a tendency to be themed and/or site-specific pieces. Nest Collective evolved out of The Magpie’s Nest which was founded 2006 and won the accolade of BBC Folk Club of 2010. TMN grew quickly and dramatically and was well-known for promoting quality traditional and roots music events throughout London and across national and international festivals circuit. In 2012, The Magpie’s Nest developed into two separate and autonomous organisations to to further explore and develop new avenues.
