We Love Music. The Black Bird Collective put on hand-crafted Gigs, Events, Festivals & Open Mic's in Totnes and beyond. We also run a Black Bird Pop Up Shop selling Vinyl, CD's, Poetry, Art and Merch, every penny of which goes straight to the artist without any money taken.
The Black Bird Collective is a DIY music collective founded by Christian Murison and Laurence Collyer in 2011. The Black Bird crew/family has flourished with the help of Matthew Rochford, Ben Addicott, Steve Rogers, Tobias Ben Jacob and other beautiful people.
