The Atlantis Bookshop on Museum Street, a stone’s throw from the British Museum is the venue for the next Cunning Folk event! Having taken a well earned break after the Bermondsey Folk Festival, Cunning Folk are gearing up for Saturnalia, the Roman festival of Saturn & precursor to Christmas.
The lovely folk at Atlantis are hosting us in the shop with poetry, music, storytelling & morris dancing from Wolfshead & Vixen Morris. Obviously the dancing will not take place inside the shop.
So put 11th December 6.30ish in the diary for a wonderful free event! More details very soon…
We had another fantastic Cunning Folk event on Friday, this time at the Atlantis bookshop on Museum Street. It was one of our favourite gigs of the year. Plenty of mulled wine, esoteric poems, stories & songs. Nigel Of Bermondsey & his merrie band, Gentlefolk, sang some adaptations of Crowley & Graves poems & a few originals too. You can see them performing a song about Badbury Rings hill fort in the little video above.
The wonderful Tim Cumming gave a reading from one his published collections. If you are unaware of his work you will have a chance to see him at future Cunning Folk events. Here is a flavour for you…
Vanessa from London Dreamtime gave a great seasonal tell which was appropriately magical.
Vanessa will be back at Cunning Folk in April with folk & blues guitar legend Wizz Jones.
Many thanks to Geraldine & Bali at Atlantis for looking after us so well!
More Cunning Folk music & spoken word events are being sorted for the new year, starting with one on the 17th January on the Minesweeper in Deptford creek.
