The Lost Words by Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris, a remarkable response to the loss of everyday nature words such as «acorn», «bluebell», and «kingfisher» from a widely used children’s dictionary, inspired Folk by the Oak festival to commission Spell Songs, a musical companion piece to this astonishing book.

Spell Songs brings together eight remarkable musicians, whose music already engages deeply with landscape and nature, to respond to the creatures, art and language of The Lost Words.

Julie Fowlis
Seckou Keita

Rachel Newton
Beth Porter

Spell Songs will enable these acclaimed and diverse musicians to weave together elements of British folk music, Senegalese folk traditions, experimental and classical music, and create an inspiring new body of work.

The Southbank Centre is a world-famous, multi-venue arts centre in London, with a dynamic year-round festivals programme and an inclusive ethos. Spell Songs is delighted to have been invited to perform in the Queen Elizabeth Hall, which recently reopened following almost three years of renovations with world class, environmentally-improved new facilities for audiences and artists.
