“London’s resident storyteller”

Time Out

“Family-friendly gigs...a typically eclectic programme, from alt-folk to hipster classical”

The Guardian

“I love Daylight Music. It’s such a brilliant idea, live music in an iconic venue, pay what you can afford entry, cake and tea. What is not to love about this?”

Emma Champion

Can Fairy Tales Be True?

London Dreamtime (Vanessa Woolf) has told magical stories with live music in foot tunnels, rooftops, derelict buildings, scary night forests, stunning secret gardens, in cemeteries, cathedrals, ships, even in pedestrian underpasses! Find us in a different location every month, rain or shine.

Vanessa says, ‘There are many Baba Yaga tales from the ancient forests of Russia, I’ve chosen this one because it’s a wild, dark adventure with lots of humour and a happy ending!’

Cunning Folk’s music which accompanies this tale is inspired by paganism, freak folk and witchcraft: ‘a swath of acoustic Tyrannosaurus Rex, early Pink Floyd, Roy Harper, Julian Cope and Donnovan with elements of modern House.’ -Rock and Reel Magazine
