I'm passionate about music and especially live music!
Being a musician myself, I love to perform in fantastic atmospheric environments with other great and interesting performers.
As there is so much going on in London, these kinds of gigs were becoming harder and harder to find .. so .. I decided to curate my own!

I seek out extremely talented musicians and wonderful, interesting spaces, with the intention of providing both audience and performer with the best live music experience possible.

A warm, fun and welcoming space, open to people from all walks of life. A bohemian outlay and a wood burning stove to keep away the chills. Serving craft coffee, delicious homemade food, cakes, pastries, beer, wine and even cocktails!
The Yurt recently won the Time Out #LoveLondon Best Cafe Award 2016 for Poplar, Shadwell & Wapping.

The folk night in the Yurt was great! Ricky is a very lovely person who made us feel welcome and comfortable. The Yurt itself is gorgeous and provided a marvellous space to sit and listen to music. There is a bar (with cake!) and a roaring wood burner to keep you cosy. All the artists were performing their own original songs which made the experience interesting and very enjoyable. They were all great! Book this experience!!!

I was a bit sceptical when I found the experience on Airbnb but I'm glad I got a ticket! The little cafe gave away a calm, earthly, vibe and the artists were all excellent! Ricky, apart from being a great musician and organizer, seems to be an interesting and compassionate human being. I'll be rejoining in the future and I recommend this experience!
