Title: Gigs at the Goose is Out - Dulwich, London
Post by: nygel packett on April 30, 2009, 05:53:58 PM
Joe Wilkes
Friday 1st May 2009 - Hooper's Bar , 28 Ivanhoe Road , East Dulwich , SE5 8DH . DOORS 8.30PM


Yet another great Goose night at Hooper's Bar! If you were at the Dick Gaughan gig last November, you will remember Joe as he was one of our brilliant support artists that night.
Joe was long associated with The Spitz venue in East London, where he played with Bert Jansch, Beth Orton and Davy Graham (R.I.P.) amongst others.
His debut album, Spotlight, was released in 2006, and has been described as "a subtle and pastoral acoustic testament at the vanguard of the re-emerging British folk scene" - a far cry from his times at the Twelve Bar Club, when he and his anarcho acoustic band would "cause a mess, with anyone and everyone joining in." !
Last year, Joe toured Europe and the UK, and filmed a TV concert. He has a new album due out in 2009.
You can find out more about Joe from his website
www.joewilkes.co.uk
and listen to some of his music at
www.myspace.com/joewilkes
And read a four star review by Maverick magazine here:
http://indiestore.7digital.com/joewilkes/
Joe will be doing two sets with an interval between, and the live music will start at 9pm with DJs before and after. Come early for a good spot, and don't forget Hooper's do a great range of ales, plus food, so you can eat and drink well whilst listening to some brilliant music!.
This event is FREE!

Martin Carthy, John Kirkpatrick, Martin Brinsford, Roger Williams - and now with Paul Archibald on trumpet! What more do you need to know?

Oh OK, a bit more then ..... they've got a new album out ...... they're utterly utterly brilliant .....

We can't believe we'll have Martin Carthy and John Kirkpatrick together on the same stage - in East Dulwich

Support will be the very excellent Matthew Ord, and the equally excellent but totally different Drohne.


Click here for tickets!

We are expecting this gig to sell out, so we do advise you to buy your tix in advance for this one.

Lots more info about the artists, times etc on our website

And the new brewery the DHFC is using had three fantastic and unusual real ales for the Faustus gig (yep - we tried 'em all) so hey, almost worth coming just for the beer .

Sam Lee with Ed Hicks and Michael Wright @ The Magnolia , East Dulwich , London SE22 9HA.

Friday 22 May 2009

This evening is a new departure for The Goose! We are returning to our roots with a traditional folk club format Upstairs at The Magnolia on Lordship Lane. Except maybe most folk clubs don't have such great food as they have here! We might even have a raffle ......

Sam, Ed and Michael will be doing two 45 minute sets, and the rest of the evening will be open to anybody who would like to sing or play traditional songs and tunes in the cosy informal setting of the Magnolia. If there's a chorus, all the better! There will be no mikes and no PA.

If you want to be sure of getting a spot, please email us beforehand or at least turn up early - doors open at 8pm and the live music will start around 8.15pm and finish around 11.15pm (or possibly when the last singer leaves!)

There is a late bar at the Magnolia with last orders at 12.30am - and the N176 night bus passes the door every half hour!.

Many of you will know Sam from The Magpie's Nest and from his work for the English Folk Dance and Song Society, based at Cecil Sharp House. Sam also appeared at the Goose with Lauren McCormick as one of the support acts for Dick Gaugah last year.

Sam is a singer, promoter, researcher, teacher and confessed die-hard enthusiast of the folk arts. Since swapping his career teaching wilderness survival and performing on the Burlesque Cabaret circuit to work in folk music, he has performed at many of the major UK festivals.

Since discovering folk music Sam has become apprenticed to the great traveller singer and storyteller Stanley Robertson who is passing on his vast legacy of Scottish ballads. He spends much of his time in between gigs travelling in the footsteps of Peter Kennedy collecting songs from the English Romany Gypsies, The Cumbrian Fell pack hunts and many other communities.

FRoots said: "Sam is the most accomplished and authentic interpreter of traditional English song to emerge in years"

Tonight Sam performs with banjo player and Magpie's Nest regular Ed Hicks and jaw's harp player Michael Wright. They have already performed at Islington Folk Club and will be playing at various festivals this Summer including Glastonbury, Whitby, and Sidmouth.

And a plea - if you like traditional music and you'd like to see this evening carry on, please come and support the Goose tonight as we will only be allowed to continue if enough people come!

Tickets £5 on the door, £3 if you do a floorspot. There's an incentive!

Yet another great Goose night at Hooper's Bar 28 Ivanhoe Road SE5 8DH.

Tom Rodwell performs wildly original, pastiche-free improvisations drawn from obscure blues, gospel and calypso sources - housewrecking blues, spirituals and otherworldly roots. Tom has been touring fulltime since 2003 from New Zealand to the UK to Switzerland to the USA to Holland and soon The Goose!

Here are some quotes:

"By turns wild, angry, hypnotic and sensual, it's as uncompromising as it is funky and some of the best live music I've seen." Blues in London."

"The most blistering one man set we've seen," - Gigwise.

"Refreshingly different, very genuine and unforced and with a seriously juicy groove," Giles Hedley and the Aviators.

Find out more about him from his website

http://www.tomrodwell.com

where you can also listen to some of his music!

Tom will be doing two sets with an interval between, and the live music will start at 9pm with DJs before and after. Come early for a good spot, and don't forget Hooper's do a great range of ales, plus food, so you can eat and drink well whilst listening to some brilliant music!.

This event is FREE!

The Goose really loves Mary Humphreys and Anahata! You have to see them live to really appreciate them, we feel.

Mary has the most beautiful and moving voice - if you think Barbara Allen has been done to death (no pun intended), wait till you hear this version. And they are both excellent musicians, either playing alone or together.

Mary sings traditional songs, mostly in English and a few in her native Welsh, and plays banjo and concertina. Anahata accompanies with melodeons, concertina and cello, and they play instrumental arrangements, mostly of English traditional music.

Find out more about them from their websites

http://www.maryhumphreys.co.uk/

and

http://www.treewind.co.uk/mha/

and hear some of their beautiful music at

http://www.myspace.com/maryanahata

Advance tickets as always from

http://www.wegottickets.com/location/2052

Support artists tonight will be Robin Gillan and False Hare.

Robin Gillan

The multi-tasking Robin not only sings but plays fiddle, banjo, squeeze box and mouth organ. Have a listen to him on his MySpace page, and you will understand why we are delighted that Robin is making his first appearance at the Goose tonight - and we're sure not his last!

http://www.myspace.com/robinjohngillan

False Hare

Aka Helen and Katie from the Kit and Cutter folk club in Deptford, these two are almost as barking as us (they must be, to have started running folk events - we did warn them, we did!!), and do brilliant unaccompanied harmony songs - ancient and modern

False Hare? One of them is into wigs, the other one thinks if there isn't a traditional song about a false hare, there should be. Saying anything? No, not us.

Hey, we know it's June and the days are long, but you really will be sorry if you miss our last gig at DHFC before the Summer break. We promise. Money back if you don't love them all (we won't believe you, so don't try it on!)

And don't forget, you can sample some more of DHFC's great new Kent ales with the strange names and wonderful tastes! Hic!

If you don't already know the Goose, there's lots more information about us, our venues, times and who else is coming up, on our website:

Peta Webb & Ken Hall .Friday 9th October
The Mag 211 Lordship Lane SE22
£5/£3 (floorspots) 8.00pm


Peta Webb & Ken Hall are two outstanding singers who we have wanted to book for some time now . We hope you will come down and enjoy them as much as we do .  :)

Floor singers and musicians welcome - please note this is a traditional night but the music can be of any country or culture! PM me or just come along when the doors open at 8pm (live music from 8.15pm).

Tickets are £5 on the door, or £3 if you're singing or playing.

Hope to see lots of you there!



Peta Webb, a Londoner with an Irish background, formed her highly-acclaimed individual vocal style through the influence of Irish traditional singers especially Margaret Barry, Sarah Makem and Sarah and Rita Keane. Peta believes firmly in the importance of learning directly from traditional singers wherever possible and has taken part in many collecting trips. With Ken Hall she now runs the successful Musical Traditions Club in London, which has a policy of presenting traditional singers.

Ken Hall, originally from Liverpool, started singing at the Islington Folk Club in London and was much influenced by Bob Davenport, Reg Hall and the traditional singers he heard there. He later developed an interest in the Northern Irish singing style of Joe Holmes and Len Graham , Kevin Mitchell and Roisin White. Ken has a fine voice and has a reputation for introducing in England the satirical and humorous songs of Sean Mone and others in the ongoing Irish songwriting tradition.

SARAH GILLESPIE . Friday 23 October 2009 - Hooper's Bar . 128 Ivanhoe Road . SE5 8DH . 8.30PM FREE!

Another great Goose night at Hooper's Bar!

What they have said about Sarah :

"She's an incandescent new presence who matches her imposing delivery with superior lyrics." John Fordham, The Guardian ****

"A leftfield singersongwriter...wry lyrics and sinuous melodies" John Bunjey, Mojo ****

A sonic reflection of the contemporary London street, Greenwich-born singer-songwriter Sarah Gillespie delivers a melting-pot mix of urban-folk and middle-eastern blues. Expect emotive ballads & raucous gypsy swing incorporating pre-rock elements of blues & vaudeville - all with her trademark lyricism that knits everyday banter with raw poetry.

Sarah performs regularly on the London circuit @ diverse venues inc Ronnie Scots, the Borderline, the 606 Club, the Vortex, as well as Arts Centres, festivals and venues across England. Her dynamite band features internationally renowned Israeli-born jazz artist, Gilad Atzmon on accordion, clarinet and saxophone, Ben Bastin on double bass and Asaf Sirkis on drums. Tonight she performs solo, every bit as powerful as when backed by her band.

Check her out at

[www.myspace.com]

Sarah will be doing two sets with an interval between, and the live music will start at 9pm with DJs before and after. Come early for a good spot, and don't forget Hooper's do a great range of ales, plus food, so you can eat and drink well whilst listening to some brilliant music!.

ALASDAIR ROBERTS, Friday 30th October  @ DHFC , EDGAR KAIL WAY , EAST DULWICH London SE22 8BD . Doors 7PM .

Tickets available in advance from WeGotTickets . visit http://www.thegooseisout.com and go to the tickets page .


Alasdair is one of those singers who just could not possibly be mistaken for anybody else, having his own very individual style. We are thrilled to have Alasdair back at the Goose after his last sell out performance .

Based in Scotland, he released his first solo album of traditional songs, "The Crook of my Arm", in 2001. His second album "Farewell Sorrow" was one of the Observer's top albums of the year (note - that's top albums, not top folk albums!) and consists of beautiful self-written songs which are totally personal yet clearly influenced by the folk tradition.

Alasdair's next album, "No Earthly Man", was a collection of traditional British ballads and his fourth, "The Amber Gatherers" was released in 2007.

fRoots said of his latest album, released earlier this year: "Spoils is back to his unyieldingly scary best… it is a beautiful, disquieting, comic, twisted, bizarre, riveting masterpiece.”

support will be from the very excellent Spoono and also Susan Wheeler

Friday 13th November . The Magnolia 211 Lordship Lane . London SE22 .
(pub is situated on the corner of Pellatt Road)
£5/£3 (floorspots). 8.00 pm .

Jon is a fine interpreter of the tradition, creating wonderful new versions of old songs. He is a fine guitarist - a wonderfully melodic player - also adding fiddle, hurdy gurdy and concertina.

Jon and Paul's music combines effortlessly, with soaring melodies and fine singing, packed with energy and imagination. This will be another great night at the Mag!

Floorspots are welcome ,PM me or turn up early on the night and add your name to the list . We charge £3 for floorspots , this will go to the artists.

Friday 20 November 2009 - DHFC Edgar Kail Way SE22 . Doors Open 7pm.

We had such a memorable evening with Dick at DHFC in 2008, we just had to ask him back. If you were there, you will know why! Two absolutely top support artists tonight, too.

Dick has been at the cutting edge of Scottish music for almost four decades. He was an early member of Boys of the Lough (he is on their first album) before joining the now-legendary Scottish folk-rock band Five Hand Reel, making three albums with them in the mid-to-late seventies.

A stunning and passionate singer with a wonderfully expressive voice allied to a dazzling guitar technique, Dick has been described as "truly masterful" (Folk Roots) and "How music from the gut really sounds" (The Guardian). If you want to know what we mean, just seek out "Handful of Earth" and "The World Turned Upside Down" - nuff said, we think.

Dick just doesn't do "ordinary" gigs, and we're sure that this evening will - again - be no exception. We are delighted to have him come back to the Goose. Maybe this could be an annual event!

You can find out more about Dick and his music at


http://www.dickgaughan.co.uk

To book advance tickets for this gig please go to http://www.thegooseisout.com
.......................................................

We have two excellent support artists too :

Nancy Wallace

"one of the finest folk vocalists of her generation" Mojo

"long respected as one of the purest voices on the folk circuit .... her live work fashions an amazing intimacy with her listener" fRoots

TIM VAN EYKEN - ELLE OSBORNE - SKINNY LISTER

Friday 8th Jan. DHFC (next to Sainsbury's), Edgar Kail Way (off Dog Kennel Hill), SE22 8BD. Door 7PM.

We had a brilliant Goose evening with Tim in June 2008, and have asked him back by popular request!

We are particularly delighted to have been able to book Tim, as he has been very tied up with singing for War Horse at the National Theatre (now at the New London Theatre) and has not been undertaking any folk gigs.

Tim has come a long way since winning the 1998 BBC Young Folk Award, breaking new ground with Dr Faustus and touring the world with Waterson:Carthy.

He is now firmly established as a leading light in the UK's thriving folk scene. The Guardian described him as "compelling" and "original" and the Observer described his last album (acclaimed everywhere from the Times to the Sun) as "a triumph".

Support will be from Elle Osborne , the excellent young singer and fiddler who appeared with Alasdair Roberts in October, but is back in her own right tonight. We also have Skinny Lister who is appearing at the Goose for the very first time.
 
Take a listen to all three acts below!  ;D

JIM CAUSLEY - ELLE OSBORNE – JEN DOYLE & JOE FOWLER

Friday 5th Feb. DHFC (next to Sainsbury's), Edgar Kail Way (off Dog Kennel Hill), SE22 8BD. Door 7PM. big grin



Spiral Earth award nominee Jim Causley returns to the Goose Is Out. Support from trad duo Jen Doyle and Joe Fowler, and solo fiddler and singer Elle Osborne.

Jim Causley has become renowned for his warm, rich and mature singing voice; (quoted as being akin to the fruitiest of real ales) his natural gift for interpreting traditional song and his wry and cheeky stage presence.

Most recently Jim has been working as a duo with long-time collaborator James Dumbelton (of Waulk Elektrik fame) and performing with Essex instrumental quartet, Mawkin as Mawkin:Causley.

Jim truly shines as a solo singer. And now we have the chance to prove it to our lovely Goose audiences!

http://www.jimcausley.co.uk

http://www.myspace.com/jimcausley


Elle Osborne was born on the North Sea coast of Lincolnshire where she taught herself to sing and play the fiddle,(with encouragement from Barry Dransfield.)

Elle's debut CD, Testimony, featured in the fRoots Best of Year Critics' Poll, and was reviewed by Colin Irwin "…One of the most compelling performances of the year

"Elle Osborne is the future of the tradition" - Auckland Folk Festival.

"Raw and compelling, passionate and engaging" - Time Out

http://www.elleo.com

http://www.myspace.com/elleosborne


Jen Doyle and Joe Fowler moved to Dulwich from Fremantle in Western Australia three months ago - and how lucky for us, as you will know if you have seen them upstairs at the Mag!

Jen plays traditional fiddle and met Nigel Kennedy once, who signed her violin with a permanent marker pen (ruining it). Joe Fowler sings simple songs and learned a lot about music from flute player Brian Warren who said '.. It’s like you’re trying to break an egg with a sledge hammer', after a performance. Nice!

Tonight they will be playing traditional songs and tunes from England, Ireland and Australia. If you didn't see them at the Mag, you're in for a treat!

Tickets available from:

Review of “So Early In The Spring” Matthews debut album .

“Matthew Ord’s rejuvenating debut solo album CD ‘Early in the Spring’ is a journey through traditional British and North American roots music. Ord has extensively toured Ireland, Scotland, Germany, Norway, the southern U.S. and Canada.

A folk performer from the late ‘60s with the likes of Muckram Wakes, Keith is an enthusiastic supporter of English traditional music and song, and has inspired many people to get involved in it.

He has a stage presentation which is humorous whilst still respecting the music, and a wry, vernacular delivery combined with a depth of repertoire and a vocal and instrumental ability which make his performances a total pleasure.

In recent years he has teamed up with Sylvia, who brings her own skills of communication and musicianship, so enabling the duo to produce harmonic concertina skills.

This will be another great evening Upstairs at the Mag, so hope to see you there . Floorspots very welcome., you can email before if you want to get a spot , or turn up early and add your name to the list.

Elle Osborne . The Magnolia 211 Lordship Lane ,East Dulwich, London SE22 8HA .
Friday 16th April . Doors 8pm . £6/5 (floorspots)



Elle was born on the North Sea coast of Lincolnshire where she taught herself to sing and play the fiddle (and ride Gypsy horses on the beach, although that's another story). She was raised amongst folk singers and wrote songs from an early age.

Barry Dransfield started her fiddle-singing (when she only asked him to glue her fiddle back together). She toured the world solo for five years, including North America, NZ and five tours of Australia in four years. Elle's debut CD, Testimony, featured in the fRoots Best of Year Critics' Poll, and was reviewed by Colin Irwin "…One of the most compelling performances of the year".

Inspired by the language and beauty of English folksong, Elle performs her own as well as re-interpretations of traditional songs (many of which she nicked from her Dad.)

Elle featured on the Lal Waterson tribute album Migrating Bird, with her experimental folk noise duo Lindsey Woolsey ("Willful dissonance!" The Times). She also composes for dance, and makes sound installations - most recently LongLines for the National Fishing Heritage Museum.
Elle has played with John Spiers and Jon Boden, James Yorkston, and most recently, Alasdair Roberts - including at our Goose evening last year!
.
“Rare and compelling ... passionate and engaging” Time Out

“...Sings as if her very life depends on it... captivatingly fearless” fRoots magazine, interview excerpt, April 2000
“Some singers just have a way with a song, and Osborne is one of them ... She's going to be a name to be reckoned with in the future” globalvillageidiot.net

Hello everyone here is some info for our Goose gigs this month .   :)

........................................................................................................


Sarah McQuaid - Upstairs at the Mag – Friday 14th May, 211 Lordship Lane, East Dulwich, London SE22 8HA .
 Doors 8pm £6/£5 (floorspots and benefits)

Sarah McQuaid learned folk music from her mother, to whom she dedicates her CD, who sang her traditional Appalachian folk songs. Sarah's mother was a Chicago native, who volunteered with the Quakers in poverty projects in Kentucky and other parts of Appalachia, and there learned of the music of Jean Ritchie, Peggy Seeger and others who helped to popularize the music of the region back in the traditional folk music boom of the late 1950s and 1960s.
Later, Sarah became enchanted with Irish music, and lived and performed in Ireland from the mid 1990s until 2007. There she also served as a newspaper columnist on music and also wrote a tutorial book on Irish guitar technique.
She is a fine guitarist, and her vocals evoke the classic English folk alto of singers like June Tabor.

John regularly toured and recorded with Richard Thompson, and played with both the Albion Band and Steeleye Span. He always maintained his love of acoustic music - that led to a long standing partnership with Martin Carthy which subsequently blossomed into the group Brass Monkey.
John has also been recently awarded  Musician of the Year in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2010 .

Friday 11 June . The Magnolia 211 Lordship Lane .London SE22 8HA
Doors open 8pm . £6/5( floorsingers and those who haven't got income from a job )


We are very excited to have got Chris to agree to come to the Mag, as he is based in Iceland these days, so it is a bit of a long trip to East Dulwich!

Chris Foster is a master of his trade. Alongside Nic Jones, Dick Gaughan and June Tabor, he established himself in the 1970’s as one finest interpreters of the traditional ballads of the British Isles

Chris has a distinctive voice. He provides guitar accompaniments that range from fine filigree lines to beautifully paced punchy, rhythmic counterpoint harmony, weaving words and music together to complement the action of the story. He has an engaging enthusiasm for his music that draws the audience into his performance.

‘As one who has witnessed the development of ‘English’ guitar accompaniment to traditional songs, I have always ranked Chris as one of our most exciting interpreters…. My old vinyl copies of his 2 Topic albums remain precious.Chris remains a consummate artist.’Graham Lobb – The Living Tradition.

‘His is one of the most distinctive voices in English folk music, totally sure and engaging, with some of the most accomplished and sensitive guitar accompaniments that you are likely to hear. A mesmeric performer.’ Vic Smith - The Folk Diary[/i]

Steve Turner - Upstairs at the Mag
The Goose Is Out!  Upstairs at The Mag ,  211 Lordship Lane , East Dulwich SE22 8HA .
Friday 10th Sept . 8.00pm £6/£5 (floorspots)

Steve Turner comes from a family of singers and concertina players. His grandfather was known to have sung and played the instrument in the 1890's.
Steve began his career on the Manchester folk scene at the end of the 1960s. Touring worldwide during the 70s .
In 1979, he won the Melody Maker "Stars of the 80s" national competition, which persuaded him to turn professional for 12 years until 1991. During this time he made four solo albums with Fellside Records and toured internationally.
Steve's 5th album, "The Whirligig of Time" featuring guests Martin Carthy, Nancy Kerr and James Fagan and Miranda Sykes was released in March 2008.
"A shining example of the music the British folk scene is capable of producing".fRoots
"Steve Turner has been turning into one of this country's finest male singers and performers of folk-song ..... with him you can truly say that he has shown all the qualities of a great singer and interpreter of folk song." Swing 51, National Folk Magazine

Martin Carthy and Dave Swarbrick – DHFC

The Goose Is Out! @ DHFC , Edgar Kail Way , East Dulwich, London SE22 8BD
Friday Sept 24th .7.00pm £ 11/£7 advance via WeGotTickets , see link at the bottom , strongly recommended . £ 12/£8 on the door (subject to availability).
Friday 24 September
A startlingly intense reunion from this legendary ground-breaking duo. All the old skills are demonstrated with a new collection of traditional songs and instrumentals. Their experienced approach to their art lacks none of the fervour of their early days, and brings a maturity born of many years living with the music that is an integral part of their beings.
This remarkable pairing played an important part in the tremendous shake up given to British folk music in the middle to late 60's. Dave Swarbrick first came to prominence on the folk scene as a young instrumental virtuoso in the Ian Campbell Folk Group. Having worked alongside other leading musicians such as Ewan MacColl and Peggy Seeger, Beryl and Roger Marriott and A. L. Lloyd, he teamed up with Martin Carthy in 1966.
"The super-duo are back together after 14 years." The Guardian
"Swarbrick is an absolute revelation here, as instinctively sympathetic and wickedly inspirational as he ever was. It’s like they were a couple of twenty somethings again. To hear Swarb bowing with such soul and tenderness and dynamism too is an unconditional joy." fRoots
For more than 40 years Martin Carthy has been one of folk music's greatest innovators, one of its best loved, most enthusiastic and, at times, most quietly controversial of figures. His skill, stage presence and natural charm have won him many admirers, not only from within the folk scene, but also far beyond it. “Arguably the greatest English folk song performer, writer, collector and editor of them all!” Q Magazine (2004)

Fran McGillivray & Mike Burke . At The Goose Is Out! . Upstairs @ The Mag . Friday 1st October
The Magnolia 211 Lordship Lane . East Dulwich . London SE22 8HA .

8.pm . £6/£5.

.........................................

Fran and Mike have appeared many times at The Goose Is Out! , but have never had a headlining gig of their own until now .

Their music is a stripped back to basics folk/blues, a mixture of self-penned and traditional material “ grippingly balanced - heartbreakingly poignant one minute, rousingly upbeat the next “Colin Irwin fRoots.

Their music has a subtle beauty and the ability to, as Neil King of Fatea says breathe life into the coldest of hearts .

Mikes' superbly sharp guitar playing compliments Fran's' earthy effortless vocal style. They have a real chemistry and warm presence when playing live.

The Martin Simpson Trio @ The Goose Is Out! DHFC, Edgar Kail Way London SE22 8BD . Friday 26th November .
Advance Tickets available from http://www.wegottickets.com/location/2052


Described by the Sunday Times as "one of the UK's finest folk musicians", and arguably the best acoustic guitarist in the UK. BBC Radio 2 Folk and Acoustic Reviews said "Although it's his guitar virtuosity that's frequently lauded, it's as an interpreter of song that Martin Simpson really scores."
Martin has won many awards, including "Best new album" (Prodigal Son) and "Best original track" (Never Any Good, a moving song about his father) at the BBC Folk Awards.
You can find out more from his website http://www.martinsimpson.com
Tonight Martin is joined on melodeon by Andy Cutting (Chris Wood, Blowzabella etc ) and on double bass by Andy Seward ( Eddi Reader, Roddy Woomble etc ).

Watch a clip of the Martin Simpson Trio below:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YXQXVwkv_KM


Support tonight will be Geri van Essen and Josienne Clarke


Geri van Essen

Geri sung in choirs from an early age. She became fascinated by old folk music after discovering a Joan Baez album with recordings from 1959.
For many years the only song she could play was 'Mary Hamilton', then busy years of studying left her guitar very dusty! In 2008, friends encouraged her to sing in public, and the lack of folk clubs in The Netherlands brought her to London.
http://www.myspace.com/gerichants


Josienne Clarke

Josienne Clarke's music largely languishes in folk chanson, but occasionally dips a toe into blues shoes. A blend of skilful songwriting distilled through folk, bluegrass and traditional influences to create expansive works of skill and beauty, executed with dexterity and charisma.
Josienne's songwriting and performing cohort is Ben Walker on both steel and nylon string acoustic guitar, and mandolin. Influenced by the likes of Bert Jansch, Pierre Bensusan, Martin Simpson and Richard Thompson, his playing adds an additional dimension to her already sculpted sound.

Matthew Ord

Matthew first came to the Goose to support Brass Monkey at DHFC. Straight after that gig we were already getting requests to have him back .... he headlined Upstairs at the Mag, and now he's back at DHFC.

Matthew is getting a reputation for absolutely stunning and spellbinding performances

Our gigs for Feb.


Maz O'Connor

Fay Hield

Friday 25th Feb. DHFC, Edgar Kail Way SE22 8BD . Doors 7pm.

Tickets £11/7 advance, £12/8 on the door.

Advance tickets from

http://www.wegottickets.com/location/2052

We are delighted to have booked Fay, having seen her a few times in 2010 and been blown away. Clearly Topic were as well as she is the first artist they have taken onto their label in ten years! Fay is appearing tonight with Sam Sweeney of Bellowhead and Rob Harbron of the English Acoustic Collective.

Fay Hield began her singing life in the lively music scene around the Famous Bacca Pipes Folk Club in Keighley. She was instrumental in launching the Haworth Arts Festival and the Three’s Company folk promotions organisation, and performed as half of a highly-regarded duo with Damien Barber.

Fay formed the female a capella quartet The Witches Of Elswick. The Witches recorded two acclaimed CDs — Out Of Bed, (Fellside) and Hell’s Belles (Selwyn Music) — in their four years together, as well as clocking up numerous radio broadcasts . Their true habitat, however, was in live performance, and they blazed their progress around the folk club and festival circuits.
In 2009 a new concert line-up with Rob Harbron (English Acoustic Collective) and Sam Sweeney (Bellowhead) was established, built around a striking repertoire of often obscure material drawn from rarely-thumbed collections. This spicy stew of songs and ballads, catches and caprices is showcased on her debut solo CD - Looking Glass, released September 2010 on the prestigious Topic Records.

Instrumentation includes fiddles, concertina, nyckelharpa, and guitar. The sound is at once crafty and nimble, airy and graceful, full of zest and nuance, sensitive to the tradition yet utterly distinctive. Fay leads with a voice whose rough edges are still thrillingly intact, and which goes straight to the living heart of the songs.

Her first outing at Oxford Festival in 2009 was Acoustic Magazine’s Gig Of The Month:
Her strong voice, with soft, comforting northern tones, delivered songs from the length and breadth of the country… Contained within a festival bursting at the seems with talent, this performance really stood out as one of the highlights. Properganda online describe the London show from her recent Looking Glass tour: Sam on fiddles and Rob on concertina and fiddle are both highly accomplished, but seem to knit in the close confines of the stage to provide an almost telepathic backing over which Fay’s superb voice soars.

Reviews of Looking Glass:

‘an uncompromising album of old-fashioned folk values...a real singer… in an age of honey throated whimpering’ fRoots

'The album is brilliant, and the best thing Topic has released in years!' Mike Harding BBC Radio 2

‘Unadorned – and quite exquisite…Hield is a rare talent’ Uncut

Uncut * * * *
Mojo * * * *
The Guardian * * *

You can find out more about Fay from her website at
www.fayhield.com
Support artists tonight will be Darren Black and Matt Allin

Darren Black is an excellent singer and instrumentalist.He has a rapidly growing profile on the folk/acoustic scene. Described by Rock 'n' Reel magazine as 'a name to note', he hails from a quiet corner of the Welsh valleys and carries a heart-felt honesty in his music.

Would love to meet some of you talkawhile forumites ... are any of you in the south london area ? do any of you sing or play , how about coming to see Maz O'Connor and doing a floorspot ?


Title: Re: Gigs at the Goose is Out - Dulwich, London
Post by: nygel packett on February 10, 2011, 02:40:50 PM

Just a reminder that we have Maz O'Connor at The Mag tomorrow ( friday 11th ) , we also have a brand new Singaround starting up this Sunday ( 13th )

7.30 pm The CPT 193 Crystal Palace Road ,East Dulwich , London SE22 .... more details below.



We are delighted to be able to confirm our new monthly Goose singaround in the "old" bar of the CPT (junction of Crystal Palace Road and Underhill Road, if you don't already know it)! We are particularly delighted as it's the Goose's local! Turn right as you come into the pub and you will find us (though if zillions of people come down we may have to move to the "new" bar).

It will be on the second Sunday of the month, and the first one will be on Sunday 13 February at 7.30pm. We expect to finish around 9.30pm, but we'll see how it goes. The bar closes at 10.30pm but there will be drinking-up time after that.

The CPT does not serve food, but you are welcome to bring your own, or order a takeaway to be delivered to the bar for you.

We hope that lots of people will come down and, er, sing. It will be very informal and participative - no mikes, no lights, no audience. You can sing whatever you like, but as we're a folk club we'd prefer it to be at least folk influenced, and if it has a chorus or is a well-known song which others can join in with, so much the better

Accompanying instruments welcome too, but please note that this isn't a session, it's a singaround.

If you just want to come and listen, of course that's absolutely fine too.

We are grateful to the CPT for letting us have this space, so it would be great if we had a good turnout for the first night. And entry is absolutely FREE!

If you don't already know about the Goose, do check out our website at

We had a lovely evening with Jackie back in the day when the Goose was scarcely out of its egg (well, 2008. Seems like a long time ago!)
Since then we have watched her blossoming in her solo career since leaving The Unthanks, and we are absolutely delighted to have the opportunity to have her back, this time with her own band!
Accompanying Jackie will be Mike Cosgrave on accordion and keyboards, Tristan Seume on guitar and James Budden on double bass, so if you like her album Hyperboreans as much as we do, you will hopefully be getting the full effect tonight!

Laura Victoria

Songs of love affairs, shipwrecks, imaginary worlds and cups of tea accompanied by cello playing that veers between moving melancholy airs, punchy rock riffing and slap bass.

Alasdair Roberts

Alasdair has twice come down from Glasgow specially to appear at The Goose Is Out! Last time DHFC was packed, and it was a very special evening. Alasdair said it was a special night too.
He is one of those singers who just could not possibly be mistaken for anybody else, having his own very individual style.
Based in Glasgow, he released his first solo album of traditional songs,under his own name "The Crook of my Arm", in 2001. His second album "Farewell Sorrow" was one of the Observer's top albums of the year , and consists of beautiful self-written songs which are totally personal yet clearly influenced by the folk tradition.
Alasdair's next album, "No Earthly Man", was a collection of traditional British ballads. His sixth album, "Too Long in This Condition" was released in August 2010, his most accessible to date.

"One of Britain's most singular and original talents" fROOTS
" Roberts effortlessly imbues ancient folk song with renewed relevance" **** MOJO
"Robert's macabre ceilidh carries an irresistible allure" **** THE TIMES
"All strangeness, betrayal and bloody hands, it's powerful, magical stuff" **** Q

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3u_Xww0vafw


Lizzie Nunnery

With the release of her debut album Company of Ghosts in Spring 2010, Lizzie's reputation as a captivating new voice in British folk has continued to grow.
BBC Radio 2's Mike Harding named the album in his top ten releases of the year, and it was nominated for Best Debut in the 2010 Spiral Earth awards.
"I was stunned by this album the first time I heard it and have gone back to it over and again. There's something riding under all the songs that, as in all great music, makes for more than the sum of its parts. " Mike Harding, BBC Radio 2 on "Company of Ghosts"
"An outstanding debut." Steve Bennett, Acoustic Magazine on "Company of Ghosts"

Paul Micklethwaite

Paul has been playing guitar since I was really quite little and started singing as well fairly recently, after I found out you can sing folk in a Yorkshire accent (lol)

.. A Yorkshireman who plays acoustic guitar and singing, often at the same time.

Once of  The Memory Band, and now with The Owl Service , also critically acclaimed for her work with Sharron Kraus and Jason Steel.

"...while good musicians can play complex stuff, it takes great ones to play simply,... Nancy Wallace makes some of the most wonderfully subtle modern folk around... a triumph for understatement" The Word

Tickets available on the night £12/£8 concs. Or in advance £11/£7 from: http://www.wegottickets.com/location/2052


Dick will need no introduction to many reading this I'm sure, but for those that don't know him,
Gaughan was brought up immersed in the musical traditions and culture of the Gaels, both Scots and Irish, which naturally, therefore, provide the foundation for everything he does.

He has been a professional musician and singer since Jan 1970. Has been playing guitar since the age of 7 and made his first solo album in 1971. Working mainly in the areas now known as "Folk" or "Celtic" music, he has recorded quite extensively since then in many countries and in various combinations. Has also worked extensively as a session musician in a wide variety of musical styles.

Was an early member of the band Boys of the Lough and is on their first album and was with the now-legendary Scottish Folk-Rock band, Five Hand Reel, making 3 albums with them. In the 90s he founded and produced the short-lived but quite extraordinary ensemble Clan Alba.

Gaughan has been the subject of three full television documentaries in the UK - BBC2 Spectrum (1982), Scottish Television NB (1989) and BBC4 Session (2006) - as well as many radio documentaries in several countries.

His 1981 album Handful of Earth was voted Album of the Decade for the 1980s in both Readers' and Critics' polls in "Folk Roots" (now called "fRoots").

"the kind of voice that could stop a train in its tracks"
(The Independent)

"one of the most coveted and revered voices of recent times"
(Rock'n'Reel)

"A truly masterful performer"
( fRoots)

The Ivy House, Stuart Road, London SE15 3BE.

£6/5 on the door only
Doors 7.45pm Live music starts 8pm.

Wizz Jones

"There are few artists with more claim to being a 'musician's musician' than Wizz Jones. Inspired by Big Bill Broonzy, Rambling Jack Elliot, Alexis Korner and Ewan MacColl, and learning his guitar licks from the likes of Davy Graham and Long John Baldry while playing in the coffee bars of London's Soho during the late nineteen fifties.Then busking throughout Europe from the streets of Paris to the markets of Marrakech during the early sixties and later to be cited by John Renbourn and Eric Clapton as an important early influence. With his unique acoustic guitar style, an eclectic repertoire and a 'right hand worthy of Broonzy' Wizz continues to tour on the acoustic folk and blues circuit"

“He's a damn fine act in a noble tradition and he's one of the finest guitar players you're ever going to see”  Mark Harrison - "Blues In London" (www.bluesinlondon.com)

The Wayne Drury Project

US singer-songwriter Wayne Drury generated a dedicated following in the state of Oregon in the early 70s, performing his own unique take on acoustic folk/alt country developing at the time.

His continuing battle with MS made playing and singing progressively more difficult until the late 70s when it came to a complete halt. His reputation stalled, but his creative output continued even though the songs were unheard. Until now. His later work is arguably his best. He is currently bedridden in a care facility in Oregon.

His 70s music partner Rob Anderson has put this project together and gathered around him a host of incredible players to perform Waynes' songs.

The project comprises:
Wizz Jones
The Flynn Brothers
Laddie Ray Melvin (first UK tour!)
Geri van Essen
Mark Langmead
Alan McMahon
Rob Anderson

Coope Boyes & Simpson @ DHFC, Edgar Kail Way SE22 8BD. Friday 4th November, 7pm

Tickets are £11/£7 in advance or  £12/£8 on the night. Advance booking link here.

http://www.wegottickets.com/thegooseisout

Barry Coope, Jim Boyes and Lester Simpson have been amongst the finest exponents of close-harmony vocal work over the past 17 years and have recorded a series of powerful albums in which they have covered anything from carols to songs about the devastation of the first world war, as well as collaborating with members of the Waterson-Carthy clan in that vocal supergroup Blue Murder, and working with the National Theatre on an adaptation of Michael Morpurgo's Private Peaceful.
Since their first appearance in 1993, Coope Boyes and Simpsons' powerful and distinctive unaccompanied singing and songwriting have taken English roots into radical new directions. Described as "quite simply the best purveyors of acappella song on these Islands", the trio’s first record, Funny Old World, was the rock magazine Q’s Roots Album of the Year.  Subsequent solo and joint releases have led to awards and outstanding reviews – the BBC Folk Website simply listed all their albums as recommended listening.

 “Coope Boyes & Simpson are currently our most inspiring vocal harmony group. Few can compete live with their voices, whether singing an unaccompanied traditional song or one of their own.”  Colin Irwin, BBC Radio2


watch Coope Boyes & Simpson below:

Support tonight will be from Thomas McCarthy and Jess Cahill

John Otway + Flameproof Moth + Liz Bentley. @ The Goose Is Out! Saturday 3rd December. The Ivy House, Stuart Road. SE15 3BE. Ticket info below. Doors 7pm.


A manic presence, and a true "one-off", John first became notorious back in 1977 after an appearance on the Old Grey Whistle Test with his former partner Wild Willy Barrett.

He had leapt astride Wild Willy's amplifier, and lost his footing. One leg slipped on one side of the sturdy wooden piece of musical equipment, and the other leg down the other. The whole weight of Otway's body crashed down on the most delicate parts of his body.

This sort of behaviour went down exceedingly well with the punk audiences of the time, and Otway was rewarded with his first hit "Cor Baby, That's Really Free", a recording contract worth a million in today's money, and a sizeable live audience.

It took a little while, but a quarter of a century after that first record, John Otway was in the Top Ten again with "Bunsen Burner", promoting him in a stroke to the hallowed pantheon of "two hit wonders."

We are particularly delighted to have two brilliant (and brilliantly funny!) local support artists tonight - Flameproof Moth (formerly Boycott Coca Cola Experience) and Liz Bentley.

Jake Wilson, Upstairs at The Mag @ The Goose Is Out!
Friday 13th January, Doors 7.45pm, £6
The Mag 211 Lordship Lane, East Dulwich, SE22 8HA.

Jake sings a great mix of songs – an excellent interpreter of traditional and original material, also a superbly skilled guitarist.
Jake has performed many times across London and the south, including FolkMonday and the annual Writeidea festival in Whitechapel.
We first met  Jake when he came to do a few floorspots at the Mag. We were so impressed that we asked him to do a thirty minute slot supporting Dave Swarbrick at DHFC.
Swarb in turn was so impressed that he asked Jake to work with him on a musical project, and not only that - Jake will be playing with Swarb at DHFC on 24 February this year!

Winner of several awards including the 2011BBC Radio 2 Horizon Award Ewan McLennan is an emerging folk artist that has been making headlines.

BBC Radio 2's Mike Harding has said of Ewan, ‘he sings beautifully, with great sincerity and great empathy, he's terrific!’. His guitar playing, described as 'stunning' , is influenced by the rigour and technique from his years of studying classical guitar, while retaining a unique and compelling sound in which his immersion in folk music is evident.
His debut album, Rags & Robes, has been receiving glowing reviews. Described as 'a collection of truly captivating songs', it was chosen as a 'Top Ten Album of 2010' by MOJO and has won numerous accolades in radio and print media.

Tim Grahams’ guitar playing has "shades of Bert Jansch and Martin Simpson" (Glastonbury Folk Club) and combined with a unique vocal style wins new fans wherever he goes.
Over the last year Tim has performed with Ed Boyd, Gren Bartley, Katriona Gilmore & Jamie Roberts and James Findlay as well as recording his debut solo album

I'd love to, but I think I'm celebrating someone's birthday in Brum that weekend.  Not 100% sure though.  I may yet be able to make it.  He's a good lad is Piers!

Lots of great stuff coming up including Rory McLeod, Martin Simpson, Frankie Armstrong, for whats on this month see below. Advance tickets for gigs at DHFC are available from www.wegottickets.com/thegooseisout . Gigs at the Mag are pay on the door.

Donal Maguire, Upstairs at The Mag @ The Goose Is Out!
Friday 10th February, Doors 7.45pm, £6
The Mag 211 Lordship Lane, East Dulwich, SE22 8HA.


Like so many other young Irish kids, Dónal was affected by the charismatic Clancy brothers and their triumphal return to Ireland from the USA, in the early 60s. Whilst admiring Luke Kelly's strident style, Dónal soon became enamoured of the high style exemplified by Joe Heaney, Paddy Tunney and Elizabeth Cronin.

While Dónal has been primarily associated with unaccompanied singing, he has significant other 'strings to his bow'. Dónal is a fine interpreter of contemporary material, as well as an excellent singer of traditional material, and can accompany himself on a range of stringed instruments. He is universally recognised as one of the finest players of Irish dance music on mandolin and tenor banjo.

"If you haven't heard this man yet then why the hell not?"
Dick Gaughan

"Dónal has what we might call 'Roots', but he has a voice too, and what a voice! It is a wonderfully rich and natural voice that brings a song to life” Hale End Folk Club
http://youtu.be/2OyRTbIOsNo

Dave Swarbrick with Jake Wilson & Kate Riaz + Brona McVitie + Dan Sumner
Friday 24th Feb,7pm.@ DHFC , Edgar Kail Way, London SE22 8BD.


Swarb was the very first artist to appear at the Goose Is Out!, over two years ago now, and our opening night was extraordinary!  This will now be his third time at the Goose.
The finest  fiddler and mandolinist, ex Fairport Convention, and loved the world over for his work both solo and as part of a duo with Martin Carthy.  
Swarb on youtube
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MYn2AptNnHo&feature=related


Brona McVitie

County Down singer and harper, Brona was brought up in Rostrevor, where the mountains of Mourne sweep down to the sea. She is the founder of
Rún
a London-based group which evolved out of Brona's interest in old Celtic songs and the folklore of her homeland. With a Diploma in Musical Techniques and Composition from London’s Birkbeck, Brona creates close harmony arrangements of what would traditionally be performed ‘Sean nós’ (the old way).
Brona is also singer and harper for The London Lasses and Pete Quinn, and more recently Legend.
She has twice appeared at the Goose in a previous incarnation with Tanya Jackson as The Woodlarks and tonight we are delighted to have her perform a rare solo gig for the Goose!

http://www.runceol.com/


Dan Sumner

Not many musicians include an Oatcake recipe with their CDs, but Kent singer/songwriter Dan Sumner appears to come from a different age. He grew up listening to his Dad’s record collection, falling in love with John Martyn and Richard Thompson records.
He picked up the guitar at the age of 11, and went on to hone a unique style, fusing his folk roots with elements of blues, rock and jazz into crafted arrangements. After a couple of years cutting his teeth on the London Folk scene, he moved to the south of Spain in search of brighter skies, but moved back a couple of years later with a new found lust for music.
Dan's new EP 'The way we did' is on sale now from iTunes and Amazon MP3. CDs sold at gigs and the Union Store, Lewes.

Rory Mcleod - ex-circus clown and fire eater. A one man soulband, poet and storyteller, singing his own unique upbeat dance stories. A modern travelling troubadour using tap shoes, acappella, harmonica, guitar, trombone, spoons, finger cymbals, bandorea, djembe and various percussion instruments!
Rory has travelled the globe for different reasons at different times, from Asia to the middle East from Gambia to Cuba, Central America, Australia, North America, Canada, Europe and other nooks and crannies of the earth.
“ Rory McLeod is a wonderful singer songwriter, storyteller, live performer and communicator, who takes you through the whole range of his extraordinary experiences and influences in unpredictable performances of explosive emotion and
intense energy” Colin Irwin fRoots

http://youtu.be/_wxUB64KoX4


Sarah Gillespie  - Sarah Gillespie was born in London to an American mother and British father. She grew up in Norfolk, England – interspersed with numerous trips to Minnesota, where she soaked in the sounds of Bessie Smith, Bob Dylan, Cole Porter and early blues and jazz. From the age of 4, Sarah composed songs on piano, and then at 15 began playing guitar. At 18, she moved to the USA, busking in the streets and playing gigs.
On returning to London whilst supporting The Blockheads at Ronnie Scotts on e night ,Sarah met the saxophonist and composer Gilad Atzmon and Gilad went on to produce Sarah’s critically acclaimed debut album Stalking Juliet (Egea). Sarah has since performed live on BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour, played festivals, jazz clubs, venues and Arts Centers across Britain and toured in Europe.
Described by Rock’n'Reel as ‘a bracingly eclectic mix of Beat poetry with jazz, folk and Middle Eastern elements’ Sarah’s music is a sonic reflection of the contemporary London street, a melting-pot mix of urban-folk stamped with her  trademark lyricism that knits everyday banter with raw poetry.

http://youtu.be/ByKHeEoPLOY

Shadrack Tye - South London based, they are all members of the same family, each with many years professional experience. Since the Summer of 2010 they have been playing at venues in London and the south west, in both duo and trio line-up, to great acclaim from audiences and promoters alike.
The line-up consists of Tina Longford (vocals, violin, recorder and percussion), Sam Robson (guitar and vocals) and Paul Robson (violin, mandolin, English concertina and vocals)
Their combined talents produce a vibrant approach encompassing the bands’ eclectic musical tastes. They blend skill and finesse with punchy rhythmic riffs and innovative harmonies resulting in a fresh and sometimes quirky approach to their chosen material - mostly folk songs and traditional material but also early music, modern songs of different genre and anything else they fancy putting their personal stamp on!

The Copper Family of Rottingdean have been singing their songs for generations, lovingly preserving them for the future. We are absolutely delighted to be welcoming them to the Goose, particularly as their public appearances outside Sussex are quite rare.

Brothers James and Thomas Copper came to prominence in the 1890s and had a great   influence on the lives of the farmworking families of Rottingdean. They encouraged and nurtured the singing of a great many old songs.

Subsequent generations of the family have continued to keep these songs alive. The present day Copper family ensemble is led by John Copper, James Coppers’ great – grandson.

New floorspots are always welcome at the Mag, get there early and put your name on the list.

Kate Denny @ The Goose Is Out! Upstairs at The Mag, Friday 13th April, 211 Lordship Lane SE22 8HA . Doors 7.45pm £6.

Kate’s voice has been described as both ‘striking’ (fRoots) and ‘lullaby-like’ (Mojo) bringing depth and range of expression to her songs and tunes that are haunting, poignant and whimsical.

The former composer, singer and fiddle player of The Kittiwakes now launches her new solo album ‘Closer to Home’ focusing her writing on matters closer to heart and home. Expect songs of tragedy and injustice, love and hope – and the odd talking bird thrown in for good measure! After three years of gigging with The Kittiwakes, Kate is no stranger to performing live, captivating audiences with the stories she weaves and gorgeous fiddle based tunes.

Praise for ‘Lofoten Calling’, Kate’s album with The Kittiwakes:

Brass Monkey + Reg Meuross + Kit & Cutter @ The Goose Is Out! DHFC. Edgar Kail Way SE22 8BD. Friday 27th April 7pm.
Tickets £12/£8 on the door. Also available in advance from:

http://www.wegottickets.com/thegooseisout


Brass Monkey
Martin Carthy, John Kirkpatrick, Martin Brinsford, Roger Williams &  Paul Archibald
“Carthy and Kirkpatrick naturally lock into one another's playing with an ease and precision that can only come of playing together for over thirty years. Sharing the vocals, and sometimes singing together in unison, they bring the fruits of years of experience to this band with an explosive freshness that is clearly driven by the excitement they all feel by playing together. It is a rare treat to see masters of their art combine with such open hearted enthusiasm to reach such tremendous heights. Feel the power!" Routes Music
The 2009 tour for Brass Monkey saw the exciting new introduction of trumpet player Paul Archibald whose classical training and love of folk music added another dimension to the much loved sound of the band which carries through to 2012. Roger Williams, who has already proved his insanity by tripping effortlessly through the fastest of tunes on the bass trombone, also brings along the euphonium to add a softer melodic touch to the gentler pieces. Martin Brinsford can add sweetness or punch on his mouth-organ as required, and amongst his numerous accomplishments on the various instruments of percussion, he can create more drive with the knuckle of one finger than most drummers can muster on a whole kit.
More Information about Brass Monkey here:

Support tonight will be Reg Meuross and Katie & Helen (Kit & Cutter)

The Raven  @ The Goose Is Out! Upstairs at The Mag, Friday 11th May, 211 Lordship Lane SE22 8HA. Doors 7.45pm £6.

Floorspots always welcome.  :)

The Raven originally appeared at the Goose supporting Spiers and Boden, and we liked them so much (and you did too!) we asked them back to headline at the Mag.

The Raven are Stephen Moncrieff on guitar /vocals, and Carolyn Forbes on vocals/flute/guitar. They perform their own arrangements of traditional folk songs from Britain and Australia as well as covers of some of their favourite folk-style songs, and a few self-penned pieces.
Separately both Steve, from Liverpool, and Caz, from Australia, have been playing and performing for many years. Steve originally played saxophone, performing in bands and as a session musician in Liverpool. Since moving to London he moved to playing guitar, having been influenced by artists such as John Martyn and Nick Drake.

Caz comes from a family of musicians, and has been singing since she was very young. She was introduced to folk music in her teens and has enjoyed performing solo and in groups ever since. Ste and Caz met a number of years ago at a gig they were both involvedin, but it was not until 2008 that they started working and performing together in London.

Since this time they have played in a number of London venues, including folk clubs and acoustic music nights.

Martin Simpson + James Riley + Roger The Chorister @ The Goose Is Out! DHFC. Edgar Kail Way SE22 8BD. Friday 25th May 7pm.
Tickets £12/£8 on the door (subject to availability). Also available in advance from:http://www.wegottickets.com/thegooseisout

Please book tickets in advance to avoid dissapointment.


Martin Simpson
We are delighted to be welcoming Martin Simpson back to the Goose for the third time.
Described by the Sunday Times as "one of the UK's finest folk musicians", and arguably the best acoustic guitarist in the UK. BBC Radio 2 Folk and Acoustic Reviews said "Although it's his guitar virtuosity that's frequently lauded, it's as an interpreter of song that Martin Simpson really scores."
Martin has been nominated an astounding 23 times in the eleven years of the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards - more than any other performer - with 9 consecutive years as nominee for Musician of The Year, which he has won twice. 2008 saw an incredible 5 nominations for "Prodigal Son' and 2 wins, whilst in 2010 he had an unprecedented 6 nominations for his CD, "True Stories" and a win for Best Traditional Track, "Sir Patrick Spens".
www.martinsimpson.com/
http://www.thegooseisout.com/events.html#martincs

James Riley
A "fiendishly proficient" guitarist, singer, and a roadrunner to match, James chronicles the story of his experiences through clamorous, jubilant bluegrass 'n' soul and exquisitely spun yarns, sewn through ethereal, almost hymn-like ballads of love and life.
James has been pedalling his unique class of pulsing, brazenly catchy acoustica throughout London and the South East, steadily gathering a word-of-mouth buzz in his wake. He also played on the same bill as Buddy Guy in Chicago and has played in venues far and wide, from Amsterdam to Istanbul
http://www.myspace.com/jamesrileysongs/music

Roger the Chorister
Roger the Chorister are Rachel Bridge (vocals and occasional bodhran), Royston Ford (vocals and occasional guitar), Richard Bridge (vocals and occasional guitar or mandolin or bodhran) and Sam Mathews (dumbec).
Their main emphasis is traditional(ish) English vocal harmony, with attitude.

Would have created a separate thread for this but I'm not able to, so I just hope it reaches who it's intended to reach, thanks.

Would you like to Sing/Play at Folk21 Showcase at Cecil Sharp House in Feb 2012?


CALLING ALL FOLK SONG/MUSIC ARTISTS

LONDON  REGIONAL SHOWCASE

ARTIST APPLICATIONS OPEN
All folk song/music artists are invited to submit an application to perform a thirty minute acoustic set at the Folk21 London Regional Day, hosted by Folk21 and the English Folk Dance and Song Society at Cecil Sharp House, London on Saturday 23rd February 2013. The day will conclude with an evening Showcase concert, headlined by Robb Johnson, which will provide an opportunity for artists to perform in front of both folk club/venue organisers and a public audience from Greater London.

To be eligible you must be based outside the Greater London region and to be already performing at folk venues.
To apply please email showcase@folk4all.net with a dated list of six recent or future folk club gigs (or equivalent) as well as a link to your website and links to YouTube or other video/audio clips, if available.

We hope that by asking artists to apply outside of their own regions it will help them to expand their reach and promote their work to areas where they may not be established or well known, equally providing a chance for London’s club organisers/promoters/audience present to hear artists that they may currently be unfamiliar with.

Applications will be accepted until Friday 10th August. Please note that any applications received after this date will not be considered.

On behalf of Folk21:
George Papavgeris (Herga)
Sue Whitehead &

Dick Gaughan + Jack Harris + Philip Henry & Hannah Martin @ The Goose Is Out! DHFC. Edgar Kail Way SE22 8BD. Friday 28th September  7pm. Tickets available in advance from http://www.wegottickets.com/thegooseisout


Dick Gaughan
Dick has been at the cutting edge of Scottish music for almost four decades. He was an early member of Boys of the Lough (he is on their first album) before joining the now-legendary Scottish folk-rock band Five Hand Reel, making three albums with them in the mid-to-late seventies.
A stunning and passionate singer with a wonderfully expressive voice allied to a dazzling guitar technique, Dick has been described as "truly masterful" (Folk Roots) and "How music from the gut really sounds" (The Guardian).
http://www.dickgaughan.co.uk/

http://youtu.be/ZDB0P57nQds

Philip Henry & Hannah Martin
Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin combine influences as diverse as English folk music, Indian classical and American blues to create a sound that is "textured, hypnotic and utterly captivating" (Steve Knightley, Show Of Hands). Using slide guitars, fiddle, banjo, vocals, and even beatbox harmonica, their debut album, Singing The Bones, has garnered warm praise from the likes of Mike Harding (BBC Radio Two), Fiona Talkington (BBC Radio Three), and fRoots Magazine.

http://www.philliphenryandhannahmartin.co.uk/

http://youtu.be/e0gbZylhi0g

Jack Harris
Jack was born in 1986 in Builth Wells, Powys, Wales. His mum and dad are keen amateur musicians and his life has been steeped in the music of the British Isles and the Americas. He started learning to play the guitar at the age of 8 and by the time he was 13 he was already showing a talent for writing songs and performing at his local High School.
Jack's songs tell searching stories of human experience and reveal a maturity and understanding far beyond his years. His rich, complex lyrics and his powerful melodies draw upon a diverse range of influences - from the music of Tom Waits, Lyle Lovett and Laura Nyro to the local tales told by his grandmother.

The Mag, 211 Lordship Lane, East Dulwich SE22 8HA.



Wizz Jones

There are few artists with more claim to being a 'musician's musician' than Wizz Jones. Inspired by Big Bill Broonzy, Rambling Jack Elliot, Alexis Korner and Ewan MacColl, learning his craft from the likes of Davy Graham and Long John Baldry in the coffee bars of London's Soho during the late fifties, busking through Europe with Rod Stewart and cited by John Renbourn and Eric Clapton as an important early influence. With his unique acoustic guitar style, an eclectic repertoire and a 'right hand worthy of Broonzy' Wizz continues to tour on the acoustic folk and blues circuit

Wizz has played at The Goose several times now to delighted audiences; it is great to welcome him back.

“Wizz Jones is a man still very much on top of his game” Colin Harper

http://youtu.be/v1tOxMaUcv8




Jason Steel
Jason Steel is a singer & picker of stringed instruments. Originally from Yorkshire, he currently rests his head in North London.
A former guitarist and singer in psych-folk outfit The Owl Service, his debut long player 'Fire Begot Ash' garnered considerable praise in various quarters upon its release in March of 2010. The album weaved the sounds of Appalachian and ragtime picking, the strange, old worlds of traditional folk and the ghosts of 1920s Tin Pan Alley.

Rob Anderson
We are delighted to be welcoming Rob back to the Goose to support Wizz tonight.

FREE Seasonal Singaround Upstairs @ The Mag, 211 Lordship Lane, SE22 8HA. 7.30pm.


Thanks to those of you who came to our singaround in November - a lovely night! It’s Singaround time again on Sunday 9th December...

If you haven't been before, The Mag is on the corner of Pellatt Road and Lordship Lane SE22. It's all very informal, no stage, no PA, no "audience" - you can sing from your seat if you want. And you can sing anything you like. Any country or culture. If it's something people can join in with, or has a chorus, great, but it doesn't have to be.

You don't have to sing, do feel free to just come and listen, though we hope you'll at least have a go at joining in the choruses!

If you'd like to give us a song, please put your name down on the list when you arrive so that we don't miss anybody out.

This is a Singaround with a difference tonight - for two reasons. First, it will have a seasonal flavour, so if you are going to sing we hope that you will bring along a seasonal song - as always, from any country or culture.

Secondly, it is the very last time The Goose Is Out! will be at the Mag as we’re off to the Old Nuns Head [www.theoldnunshead.co.uk] in January.

We hope you’ll join us in extending our thanks to Steve and his staff at the Mag for all their support over the last few years - they have been brilliant!

For more information about the Singaround and The Goose Is Out! please see [www.thegooseisout.com] - although we have yet to update the website with details of the venue changes.

Please Note I can't seem to edit the post above, new information regarding this gig.

Suntrap will not be appearing at the Jackie Oates gig. They will hopefully appear at a later date.... they will be replaced by Matt Allin


Matt Allin
Matt is replacing Suntrap tonight, who unfortunately due to unforeseen technical difficulties we had to replace at short notice.
We discovered Matt when he came down to the Mag and did a couple of floorspots. Matt lives in East Dulwich, and plays mostly traditional songs and some songs he writes himself. He has a liking for sea songs, but unfortunately has no sea legs. He plays guitar and mandolin and sometimes (when he's allowed) the melodeon. He has two very tolerant cats.

As well as supporting Norma Waterson, Martin Carthy and Chris Parkinson at DHFC, Matt played and sang to an enthusiastic crowd at our local street party in Crystal Palace Road, East Dulwich, a couple of years back.

The Crown and Greyhound 73, Dulwich Village, SE21 7BJ

http://www.wegottickets.com/thegooseisout

Alasdair is one of those singers who just could not possibly be mistaken for anybody else, having his own very individual style. He has been described in fRoots as one of this countries singular and most original talents.

Each time he has appeared at The Goose he has given an exceptional performance and we are delighted to have him back.

He released his first solo album of traditional songs, "The Crook of my Arm", in 2001. His second album "Farewell Sorrow" was one of the Observer's top albums of the year (note - that's top albums, not top folk albums! Amazing for a folk album!), and consists of beautiful self-written songs which are totally personal yet clearly influenced by the folk tradition.

Alasdair has since released a set of exceptional albums , the most recent " A Wonder Working Stone" was released early this year and is considered by many to be his best yet. Songlines say of it:

"The invention and freshness of the music matches the power and breadth of Roberts' singular lyricism"

Singaround time again  :)

It's Singaround time again soon!

It's at The Old Nun's Head 15 Nunhead Green SE15 3QQ - a great pub with good food and real ale.

http://www.theoldnunshead.co.uk

We'll be in the room upstairs. If you have a mobility issue, let us know and we'll do our best to get you up and down the stairs!

Everybody is welcome, either to sing or to listen, though we hope you'll at least join in the choruses ..... but you don't have to!

It's a friendly and informal atmosphere, so if you've never plucked up courage to sing in public before, why not come and give it a go. It doesn't have to be a folk song, though it usually turns out that most of the songs are folk-influenced in some way. Songs of any country or culture are welcome.

  Ewan McLennan + Long Lankin + Brona McVittie. Friday 25 October, The Ivy House 40 Stuart Road, Nunhead, SE15 3BE.
  Doors 7pm.


 Advance tickets available here: http://www.wegottickets.com/thegooseisout

Winner of several awards including the 2011 BBC Radio 2 Horizon Award Ewan McLennan is an emerging folk artist that has been making headlines. His music combines traditional folk, with an inevitable focus on the music of Scotland, as well as his own self-penned songs that are receiving critical acclaim in their own right. BBC Radio 2's Mike Harding has said of Ewan, ‘he sings beautifully, with great sincerity and great empathy, he's terrific!’ His guitar playing, described as ‘stunning’, is influenced by the rigour and technique from his years of studying classical guitar, while retaining a unique and compelling sound in which his immersion in folk music is evident. Ewan is returning to the Goose Is Out for his second headline concert and to the newly re-launched and community owned Ivy House in Nunhead. We know you’ll have a great evening.

Hello everyone, Here are details of our gigs for November  :)


Tattie Jam; The Goose Is Out! Friday 8 November, Upstairs At The Old Nun's Head, Door 7.45pm, live music starts 8pm floorsingers welcome, tickets £7 (on the door only).

The Old Nuns’ Head 15 Nunhead Green, London SE15 3QQ.

Tattie Jam play (mainly Scots) traditional and folk music, with a twist. Seylan Baxter sings and plays the lead on a 5-string electric cello, and Ruaridh Pringle sings and plays dynamic accompaniment on guitar - and sometimes didgeridoo and octave mandolin; sometimes also taking the lead on mandolin. While playing and singing everything from keening slow airs and a capella dark ballads to kinetic reels and gentle or high-octane original songs (many of their songs and tunes are written by Ruaridh Pringle), their style is highly energetic, with both melodies and a strong rhythmic underpinning being bounced around between both musicians. Rich, sometimes unexpected harmonies predominate in their singing, with both singers alternating the lead.

Thomas McCarthy + Pepper & Shepherd + Ian Kennedy & Sarah Lloyd : Friday 29 NovThe Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road, SE15 3BE. Doors open 7.00pm.

Yes, it's Seasonal Singaround time again!   :)

It's at The Old Nun's Head 15 Nunhead Green SE15 3QQ - a great pub with good food and real ale.

http://www.theoldnunshead.co.uk/

We'll be in the room upstairs. If you have a mobility issue, let us know and we'll do our best to get you up and down the stairs!

Everybody is welcome, either to sing or to listen, though we hope you'll at least join in the choruses ..... but you don't have to!

It's a friendly and informal atmosphere, so if you've never plucked up courage to sing in public before, why not come and give it a go. It doesn't have to be a folk song, though it usually turns out that most of the songs are folk-influenced in some way. Songs of any country or culture are welcome. Also a songs of a seasonal theme positively encouraged at this Singaround.

Many people sing unaccompanied, but you are welcome to bring an accompanying instrument - however please note that this is a Singaround ie songs not tunes! Please also note that we don't use PA, and this isn't an "open mic" night. There is no stage (well, there is but we don't use it for the Singaround) and no mic. You can sing from your seat if you want.

Tonight will have a slightly different format - so watch this space. Carols and seasonal songs in the second half.

The Singaround starts around 7.30pm - we are trying to encourage people to be on time! - and the finishing time is flexible. We have an interval at a suitable point somewhere in the middle ........

It is still free to get in, but we now pass a hat (actually a bag!) round at the interval to cover ongoing Goose expenses and to help keep down the ticket price of our other ticketed nights.

We suggest a donation of £2, but anything is welcome - and please don't feel you have to give anything if you can't afford it. It's a community singaround and we don't want to exclude anybody.

Reg Meuross; The Goose Is Out ! Friday 10 January,


Upstairs At The Old Nun's Head, Door 7.45pm, live music starts 8pm floorsingers welcome, tickets £7 (on the door only).

Reg Meuross is without doubt one of the UK’s finest singer-songwriters. Those who get him are growing in number.
A superb singer songwriter of 20 years or more, extremely highly acclaimed and a “must see” live. The quotes below are a testament to the high regard he is held in. Reg’s songs are poignant and heartfelt observations of the human condition.

“Perceptive. Beautiful and intelligent songs…Stunning!” Mike Harding

“...beautiful” Iain Anderson BBC Radio Scotland

James Findlay & Alex Cumming ; The Goose Is Out! Friday 14 Feb, Upstairs At The Old Nun's Head, Door 7.45pm, live music starts 8pm floorsingers welcome, tickets £7 (on the door only).

The Old Nuns’ Head 15 Nunhead Green, London SE15 3QQ.

The Goose first saw James Findlay when he was lurking at the side of a come-all-ye type session one afternoon in Towersey Village Hall a year or so back.

He was the last up to sing, and only sang one song, but we were blown away by his performance. It was one of those "How come you've escaped our radar for so long?" moments ......

Following on from winning the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Awards in 2010, James was signed by leading Folk Music label Fellside and released his album, 'Sport & Play' to a set of shining reviews.
English Dance & Song noted his 'great voice', and ability to 'handle a repertoire that would normally be associated with an experienced performer with no difficulty' and R2 magazine commented that 'Findlay is a singer of rare strength and conviction'. All this helped to establish James Findlay as one of the leading young Folk performers, and he secured a place in the MOJO Top Ten Folk Albums of 2012.

Since the release of that album he has been consolidating his position on the Folk club and festival circuit with his voice of 'steel and sensitivity' with a 'dramatic edge' that draws the crowd along and into his performance.

His new album 'Another Day Another Story' builds on the previous one with an excellent choice of mostly traditional songs which strongly link to his West Country roots. Again he keeps it simple to let the songs speak for themselves and it will go a long way to further enhance his growing reputation within the folk scene.
James will be joined tonight by Alex Cumming on accordion and bouzouki.

Tom Paley + Reuben's Train + The Wayne Drury Project
Friday 28 February - The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road, Nunhead SE15 3BE.


Door 7pm, live music starts 8pm, good food and real ales!
Tickets £10/8 advance, £11/9 on the door.

Advance tickets available here: http://www.wegottickets.com/thegooseisout

Tom Paley

Tom Born and raised in New York City, Tom Paley fell in love, long ago, with traditional folk-music. He began playing guitar and 5-string banjo and was soon well-known for hisinstrumental skill.

For a time, he performed in a duo with Woody Guthrie. Later, with Mike Seeger and John Cohen, he formed THE NEW LOST CITY RAMBLERS, the group that generated a great wave of interest in the traditional string band music of the rural South.
After the breakup of the original NLCR, he formed the short-lived OLD RELIABLE STRING BAND (together with Roy Berkeley and Artie Rose) and then moved to Sweden, residing there for three years (1963-65) before moving to England, where he has lived ever since, touring often in America, the UK, Scandinavia and other parts of Europe, both solo and with other musicians.

In England, he worked together, from about 1966, with Joe Locker and a series of fiddlers as the NEW DEAL STRING BAND. The NDSB was temporarily laid on the shelf in the late ?70s but has been revived in recent years with Tom's son, Ben, joining Tom and Joe as principal fiddler (though, in 1975, after many years on guitar and banjo, Tom took up fiddle, as well, so the NDSB now has two fiddlers).

Tom is returning to the Goose for the second time. We had to turn people away last time.

http://www.wildernessroad.net/tompaley/


Reuben’s Train

Reuben's Train are a duo performing mostly American songs, some traditional and some not so traditional, from the darker side of life. Feel free to stumble around our shadowy site. You may come across the occasional faint glimmer of hope - this is entirely unintentional.

They have been performing together for the last 15 years. After a nerve-racking first performance at the truly wonderful Sharp's Folk Club, they began to realise that audiences were having a hard time working out quite how to react, with one half laughing and the other half telling them to be quiet.They've never looked back.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xf6btNxNLWE
http://www.reubenstrain.com/gigs.html


The Wayne Drury Project

US singer-songwriter Wayne Drury generated a dedicated following in the state of Oregon in the early 70s, performing his own unique take on acoustic folk/alt country developing at the time.

His continuing battle with MS made playing and singing progressively more difficult until the late 70s when it came to a complete halt. His reputation stalled, but his creative output continued even though the songs were unheard. Until now. His later work is arguably his best. He is currently bedridden in a care facility in Oregon.

His 70s music partner Rob Anderson has put this project together and gathered around him a host of incredible players to perform Wayne’s' songs.

We’re absolutely delighted to be welcoming Jim Causley back to headline at The Ivy House! And with two absolutely top support artists, too!

Floorsingers always welcome.


Cath & Phil Tyler play Anglo-American folk music using guitar, banjo, voice and fiddle.

 The Goose first saw them a couple of years back, in the very same room Upstairs At The Old Nun’s Head where they will be playing tonight, and were blown away by them.

Suntrap @ The Old Nuns' Head, 15 Nunhead Green London SE15 3QQ, Doors open 7.45pm, £7.floorspots always welcome.


Sara Byers and Mary Wilson first met in 1996, in the tiny basement folk club at Cecil Sharpe House. They soon started to sing traditional a capella folk songs together. The following year they made their first ‘demo’ at Dave Pegg’s Woodworm Studios and Sara asked an old band mate, Paul Hoad, if he would come and play some guitar. He enjoyed playing with them so much that he refused to leave. Since he had a very useful estate car, they let him stay.

And so Suntrap was born.

They have played all over the UK and Europe at major folk festivals, folk clubs and arts centres. The band have been privileged to open Cambridge Folk Festival, Skagen Folk Festival and Warwick Folk Festival. Radio features have included the Mike Harding Show and a live performance on Radio 4’s Loose Ends.

Doors Open 7 pm, Live Music 8pm.

Advance tickets available here : http://www.wegottickets.com/thegooseisout

When it comes to a distinctive sound, exceptional duo Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin have shown they are in a league of their own.

One of the most inventive and captivating rising acts on the acoustic roots scene they unveiled their evocative second studio album in September 2013 to marked acclaim from all quarters. From the West Country hotspot of musical talent, the harmonious Devon duo followed up their 2012 debut Singing the Bones with the moving and mystical Mynd (Old English for memory and remembrance) - an exquisite 12-track album infused with Phil's trademark instrumental virtuosity, Hannah's clear vocals and the pair's highly original thought-provoking songs often trawled from some of the less obvious moments in history.

Widely regarded as one of the best slide guitarists in the UK, Lancashire-born multi instrumentalist Phillip Henry has been described as "one of the most extraordinary musicians around". Henry, who studied in Calcutta with India's premier slide guitarist Debashish Bhattacharya, is also a virtuoso on the harmonica and brilliant on beatbox harmonica whilst Brixham-born singer-songwriter Hannah, is a skilled fiddler, viola and banjo player with a real lightness of touch, a distinctive voice and a gift for tapping traditional music veins to create contemporary songs.

We're delighted to be welcoming Phillip and Hannah back to the Goose Is Out!

First gig of the autumn will be Philip G Martin aka Drohne on sept 12 details below. Incidentally the Martin Simpson, Andy Cutting & Nancy Kerron the 26th gig is now sold out!
 :)
.........................

The Old Nun's Head,15 Nunhead Green, London SE15 3QQ
 Friday 12 Sept, Doors 7.45pm. £7. Floorspots welcome.

 Philip G Martin (aka Drohne) draws on influences rooted in a bygone age, and uses instruments normally associated with European traditional music. However the music he makes is essentially contemporary English.

 Each time Phil has come to the Goose, he has had a very appreciative audience, with an interesting mix of instruments and an equally interesting mix of material (Drohne, not the audience! All Tomorrow’s Parties played on the Hurdy-Gurdy, anyone?)

 We had been wanting to give Phil a headlining night of his own for some time, and now finally we have succeeded! We are sure that this will be a fantastic evening!

Our October gigs



You Are Wolf, Friday 10 Oct, The Old Nun's Head, 15 Nunhead Green SE15 3QQ. 7.45pm, £7.

 Floorspots welcome.

 If you saw You Are Wolf (aka Kerry Andrew) at The Crown & Greyhound supporting Alasdair Roberts last year, you will be back! If you didn’t, come and see what you have been missing. We absolutely promise you won’t be disappointed – she is absolutely brilliant and unique, with a very special talent.

 'English avant-folk at its finest' - Observer

 'Imagine Bjork working her magic on the English folk tradition '- Uncut Magazine

 'an effortlessly charming and flamboyant frontwoman possessed of a truly beautiful voice, which also served as a seemingly bottomless repository of clicks, clacks and hums, layered and looped into a richly absorbing tapestries of sound... [she is] clearly dedicated to pushing British folk music forward into an uncertain future rather than insisting simply on its preservation' - Drowned in Sound


 New album "Hawk to the Hunting Gone" was chosen as one of Uncut's halftime albums of the year in June 2014.

Steve Tilston + Jess Morgan + Kate Denny: The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road Nunhead, London SE15 3QQ.

Friday 31 Oct. Doors open 7pm.

tickets http://www.wegottickets.com/thegooseisout

Celebrating over 40 years as a professional musician! Ask anyone on the English acoustic scene who their favourite guitarist, singer, songwriter and entertainer is and nine times out of ten the same name will crop up in the top three of every department. Steve Tilston is one of our most celebrated song-smiths; widely recognised within the world of folk and contemporary music: the words, arrangements and subtle, quite superb guitar playing could be no one else.

 Born in Liverpool and raised in the Midlands, Steve made his recording debut in 1971 with the classic An Acoustic Confusion and has been turning out quality albums ever since. Life by Misadventure, And So It Goes, Solo Rubato and Such and Such all featuring first-class song-writing, quintessentially English in style and typically Tilston, marking him out as one of this country’s finest writers. The instrumental Swans at Coole is testament to his guitar virtuosity.

 Though known as a songwriter, Steve has always had an ear for the tradition and included new interpretations of old favourites on his original recordings. Of Many Hands is his first “all-traditional” album paying homage to his roots, with unique arrangements of timeless classics.

‘His work simply gets better as time goes on’ – Mojo

‘A great narrator on top form’ – The Observer

Our Alasdair Roberts gig on 28th has sold out ......

However...........

 We have Jody Kruskal this Friday 14th Nov at 7.45pm at The Old Nun's Head, 15 Nunhead Green , London SE15 3QQ

( £7 , Floorspots welcome )

Jody Kruskal sings vintage American songs and play tunes on the Anglo concertina. He is from New York City, yet performs regularly in the UK.

 His concerts offer a warm and engaging solo presentation of traditional and popular American songs from yesteryear. From witty and humorous ditties to songs that explore the depths of the human condition, his singing tells American stories that are hilarious, gritty and true… stories of train wrecks and wrecked marriages, death row convicts and lonesome lovers, heroes, swaggering braggarts, lazy slackers and slapstick fools. Plan to join in on the chorus.

 His love affair with the concertina goes back thirty years.He often plays at local New York contra dances with a number of bands. He has played extensively for morris and sword teams and also many Playford dances in NYC.


“What a refreshing sound!” – Sing out!

“Brilliant concertina player” – Vin Garbutt

“Technical fireworks… exceptional skills… very exciting playing… he’s able to make the anglo-concertina sound like a mouth organ… bending and blurring notes, so that his playing could never be mistaken for that of an English or even Irish player. ” – Rod Stradling, Musical Traditions

“Jody is an Anglo concertina virtuoso from the USA with a joyful, energetic & distinctive style; he’s a master of American contra dance, old-time and music-hall. He’s a fine singer. He writes stonkingly good tunes, too.” – Lewes Saturday Folk Club

Martin Carthy on 30th of Jan has now SOLD OUT

however ..........

Twelfth Day, The Old Nun's Head, 15 Nunhead Lane, SE15 3QQ. £7, Doors 7.45pm

 Floorspots welcome

 Twelfth Day are fiddle player Catriona Price and harpist Esther Swift. They both sing – often in unison, creating a new voice that is neither one nor the other. They both write – together, weaving traditional folk with classical elements to create a music that’s outside of genre. Lyrically they combine their own experiences, inspirations and dreams, informed by musical travels around the globe and their upbringings in Orkney and the Scottish Borders. They are inseparable.

 Their newest album The Devil Makes Three brings together everything these women have heard and learned, over many years of playing and studying, to form a musical statement about who they are. The record surprised and thrilled broadsheet music critics and the folk press alike.

“21st century art music for trad fans.” – fRoots

“Refreshing, creative and original.” – Folk London

Pete Cooper & Richard Bolton : The Old Nun's Head,15 Nunhead Green, London SE15 3QQ. Friday 13 March, 7.45pm, £7.

Floorspots very welcome.


'Cooper and Bolton' are Pete Cooper (fiddle, mandolin and vocals) and Richard Bolton (cello and guitar). They've played numerous gigs at folk clubs and many festivals .Their musical influences are diverse, but they identify their music - both traditional tunes and songs, and their own highly original new pieces - as 'Contemporary English Roots'.

They find a potent source of musical inspiration, and historical focus, in the strange affinity between English fiddle music in its pre-Victorian heyday, which was surprisingly diverse in its sources and inspiration.

"...tremendous feel and focus" Chris Mills, Fiddle On

Reg Meuross + Jess Vincent + Rick Hayter: The Goose Is Out! Friday 27 March, The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road, London SE15 3BE. Doors open 7.pm.

Tickets http://www.wegottickets.com/thegooseisout  

Reg's clever and imaginative lyrics have earned him the title of "Master Storyteller" (PennyBlack Music) and led Mike Harding to introduce him onto the stage of The Royal Albert Hall as "one of the finest singer-songwriters this country has produced". Whether it's a village hall or the Albert Hall, Reg brings to the stage a collection of extremely beautiful songs, performed with humour and depth, and sung with the voice of an angel. Reg has that rare gift of being able to touch people, through his songs and performance, on a really human level. His words and music paint pictures that remain with the listener long after the song has been sung.

Reg first emerged onto the acoustic music scene in the 1980s with The Panic Brothers and has, over the years of touring and playing solo as well as with many other acclaimed artists, developed a style that as Pete Townshend says "allows the listener to embrace the whole breadth of his work over many years without distraction… he sings in the neutral accent of an Englishman who travels the entirety of the British Isles"

Stick In The Wheel at The Old Nun's Head

Friday 10 April, The Old Nun's Head, 15 Nunhead Lane, SE15 3QQ. 7.45pm / £7

 Floorspots welcome.

 We love Stick in the Wheel!

 They supported Jim Causley at The Ivy House in 2014, and we immediately booked them to headline in their own right at a club night.

 They are one of the most original bands on the scene at the moment, in our opinion. Hailing from London , they sing songs from and about London in, well, a very London fashion.

 They say of themselves," we play the music of our people. We sing in our own accents. We record in our kitchens and living rooms. This is our culture, our tradition."

“There is a pleasingly raw, simple and authentic sound to their music” – Bright Young Folk

“The hottest new folk band for ages…” Ian Anderson, fRoots magazine

“A real discovery…” Tom Robinson, BBC6Music

“Very entertaining” Joe Boyd

“Cracking stuff” Sam Lee

Jim Moray + Fifteen Days + Elliot Morris . The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road, Nunhead, London SE15 3BE
Friday 24 April. Doors open 7pm.

Tickets http://www.wegottickets.com/thegooseisout


Jim Moray last appeared at the Goose two years ago when we were temporarily at The Dog (aka The Crown and Greyhound) in Dulwich Village, and we enjoyed the evening so much that we have asked him back, this time to the larger and rather splendid Ivy House!

 Jim has won many awards for his excellent albums and has continuously pushed boundaries since his emergence on the scene with " Sweet England" just over ten years ago. There is a sense of anticipation around each new release as to what he will do next. An artist constantly changing and evolving.

 Joining Jim tonight are two support artists new to the Goose but we think you will like them – Elliott Morris and Fifteen Days, both singer songwriters, both highly original yet contrasting in style.

 "Jim Moray is one of the most consistently inventive musicians working in English traditional music today." CAST

Jack Harris : The Old Nun's Head, 15 Nunhead Green London SE15 3QQ. Friday 8 May, 7.45pm / £7
Floorpspots welcome.


The Goose has (have?) admired Jack Harris for a long time as a fantastic singer and songwriter, and we thought it was about time we gave him a headlining gig!

 Jack was the first international (ie non-American) artist to win the New Folk songwriting competition at the Kerrville Folk Festival, Texas. Previous winners include Steve Earle, Lyle Lovett, Gillian Welch and Devon Sproule.

 Jack has gigged frequently in the UK, USA and Europe, both as a support act and headline performer. He has made several appearances at The Green Man Festival, and opened for some of folk music’s biggest names, including Dick Gaughan, Martin Carthy and Dave Swarbrick, as well as contemporary songwriters like Anais Mitchell and Jeffrey Foucault.

 Jack’s live show is a riveting mix of song-craft and story-telling, adorned by intricate fingerstyle guitar and smoky, soulful vocals. Drawing from the narrative traditions of folk and blues music, Jack brings both into the here and now; a “born poet”, whose songs are steeped in myth and mystery.


“Jack Harris is a priest of song who holds himself to a rigorous, ancient code of beauty most of us have forgotten exists.”— Anaïs Mitchell

Tickets for our evening with Dick Gaughan have more or less sold out with only a handful of tickets left.

However......

We have the very excellent Nick Dow a couple of weeks after details below.

Nick Dow at The Old Nun's Head. Friday 12 June. 7.45PM / £7
The Old Nun's Head, 15 Nunhead Green SE15 3QQ.


Nick Dow has been singing traditional Folk Songs for over Forty years. He has had a big influence on the Folk scene and most recently award winning English Folk Musician Jim Moray has quoted Nick as an influence singing two songs from his repertoire and including one {Seven Long Years} on his latest album ‘Skulk’

Nick is an acknowledged expert on West Country Folk Songs and together with his wife Mally ,has collected over 300 songs in Dorset, and also found singers in Lancashire and Essex

He has also made recordings of Gypsy Singers some of which have been included on Topic Records series ’The Voice of the People’

Nick Dow has returned to the Folk Scene after a long absence. He spent several years building up his business of Signwriting and building and restoring Gypsy Wagons.

Nick has lived an amazing life. From a rough childhood in South London, he has lived on his wits since he left home at eighteen; travelling half way round the world, living on the road with the Travelling Folk and learning their songs, working as a TV and Film Extra, broadcaster, Narrowboat painter, writer, Folklorist, Guitar Teacher and General Dealer.

Every song Nick sings has a story attached to it, and his gigs are as informative as they are entertaining.

Nick and Mally now live happily in East Lancashire surrounded by Moorland and Fells.

Here's Nick

Dave Swarbrick + Jake Wilson + Alison Frosdick & Jack Burnaby : The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road SE15 3BE, Friday 26 June.

Doors open 7PM

Tickets : http://www.wegottickets.com/thegooseisout


Dave Swarbrick will obviously need little or no introduction to regulars of this forum, however, a little background info ... Dave  headlined  our very first Goose concert, way back in March 2008, and he’s been back a few times since both solo and with Martin Carthy.

 Dave joined the IAN CAMPBELL FOLK GROUP for several years in the early 60's and in 1966 he teamed up with MARTIN CARTHY. This remarkable pairing played an important part in the tremendous shake up given to British folk music in the middle to late 60's. When they parted in 1969 ( they would renew their partnership in years to come, of course) Dave joined FAIRPORT CONVENTION and his contribution to folk and folk/rock music is legendary and well documented.


 Tonight at Swarb’s request we also have local songwriter and guitarist Jake Wilson. The two met when Jake supported him at the Goose before. They quickly struck up a friendship and Swarb went on to produce Jakes' album " All's Well", a series of songs based on Scotts expedition to the Antarctic.

 Dave is arguably the finest fiddler there is and is highly regarded the world over.

 "His fiddle flits and swoops like a swallow in full flight ...both his sense of humour and cavalier instinct are intact." fRoots

 Also supporting are Alison Frosdick & Jack Burnaby, who many of you will know from their Goose floorspots and regular appearances at other clubs.

Here's Swarb and Jake Wilson together  :)

Our next club night will be ith the excellent Robin Gillan, details below. :)


Robin Gillan : The Old Nun's Head, Friday Oct 9, 7.45 pm - 11.00pm.

£7 on the door. Floorspots Welcome.

We are really delighted to be welcoming Robin Gillan back to the Goose – it’s been far too long!

Robin is an accomplished mult-instrumentalist and singer, known for his emotive and authentic playing of old-time American and British traditional music.

His music reflects timeless old field recordings of the 1950s, 60s and 70s, & early 1920s commercial country recordings from the USA and British Isles.

Robin started playing folk guitar at the age of 8, and had an immediate aptitude and love for the music. Also it could be learned by ear, Robin plays fiddle, 5 string (banjo), squeeze box, mouth organ and voice. He has appeared at many folk clubs , festivals and concerts over the years, and has recently worked with Tom Paley on Toms' Old Time Moonshine Revue.

FREE Sea Song & Shanty Night featuring The Hog Eye Men + Shotley Crue : The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road SE15 3BE. Friday 27 November, 8PM.

This FREE night replaces the originally advertised concert headlined by Sur Les Docks , which was cancelled as the band’s lead singer had new work commitments which meant he was unable to come.
There will be spots from The Hog Eye Men and Shotley Crue (whom regulars at our Singarounds will know) plus a singaround where anybody is welcome to get up and give us a sea song, shanty or sea-themed tune. Just sign up on the night if you’d like to sing or play – first come first served, one song each till we reach the end of the list, then we’ll start again.

We will be passing the hat (well, a bag) around for The Hog Eyes at some point during the evening. Please don’t take money out of it

Our previous sea song and shanty nights have been great (we say modestly) and we look forward to an equally good evening tonight!

Our next monthly event at the Ivy House will be ......



Wizz Jones + City Ramblers Revival + Joe Wilkes : The Goose Is Out! The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road. Friday 29 Jan. Doors open 7PM.

Tickets available here : http://www.wegottickets.com/thegooseisout
or from the Ivy House, or on the door at the gig.


Inspired by hearing Big Bill Broonzy and Ramblin’ Jack Elliot, Wizz Jones learnt his guitar licks from the likes of Davy Graham and Long John Baldry whilst playing in the coffee bars of London’s Soho in the late 1950’s.

He then followed the time-honoured buskers’ trail from the streets of Paris to the markets of Marrakech during the early 1960’s and returned to Britain with a unique acoustic guitar style,
an eclectic repertoire and a ‘right hand worthy of Broonzy’!

John Renbourn, Clapton and Keith Richards have all named him as an important early influence and in May 2012 Bruce Springsteen opened his Berlin show with Wizz’s song ‘When I Leave Berlin’.
After more than 50 years ‘on the road’ Wizz continues to tour on the Acoustic Folk and Blues circuit, usually solo but sometimes with his Son Simeon on Sax, Flute and Harmonica.”

City Ramblers Revival are named after the famous late 50’s group the City Ramblers, regulars on BBC Radio and TV’s Six Five Special, and resident band of the Skiffle Cellar, Soho.

They recorded for Tempo Records and Storyville and played at the Moscow International Youth Festival in 1957. Today, CRR are Hylda Sims (guitar/vocals), Simon Prager (guitar/vocals) and Doc Stenson (guitar/mouth harp/vocals).

Here's what's up next - Laura Smyth & Ted Kemp at the White Horse (Club Night) and John Kirkpatrick at the Ivy House (Concert)

....................................................................................................................................................

Laura Smyth & Ted Kemp : The White Horse, 20-22 Peckham Rye, London SE15 4JR Thursday 7 April , 7.30 PM.

Floorspots welcome. £7 (Pay on the door)

Laura Smyth and Ted Kemp perform traditional songs from England and beyond, with special attention given to their respective homes in the North West and East Anglia. While placing great value on unaccompanied solo and harmony singing, they also accompany themselves on English concertina, 5-string banjo, cello, and guitar.

Laura and Ted interpret and deliver their music with a reverence for traditional performers and source material, taking influence from the classic folk revival performers of the 60s and 70s, whilst achieving a style that is very much their own.

We think they’re brilliant. Judge for yourself from the youtube clip below – then come and see them at the Goose!

Tickets : http://www.wegottickets.com/thegooseisout

Tickets are also available from The Ivy House, and will be on sale on the night, if we don't sell out in advance first.

It is always a great pleasure to welcome John Kirkpatrick to the Goose. Many of you will have seen him last year with Brass Monkey, however this will be his first time solo at the Ivy House.

John is an astonishing musician, has a huge repetoire, and is very entertaining.

John is one of the most prolific figures on the English folk scene, performing solo, in duos, acoustic groups and electric bands, and has established an enviable reputation as an instrumental virtuoso and session musician, as well as a leading interpreter of English folk music. He has been a member of the Albion Country Band, Magic Lantern, The Richard Thompson Band, Steeleye Span, Brass Monkey, and Band of Hope, as well as numerous ceilidh bands.

Our supports tonight will be Rachel Taylor-Beales and Russell Roslin

Rachel Taylor-Beales is a singer-songwriter who cannot be slotted neatly into any one genre. As her website says, she sits somewhere at the crossroads of folk, blues, roots and jazz.

Her latest album is inspired by the mythological Selkie (seal-folk) stories from the Orkney Isles.

http://www.racheltaylor-beales.com/

Russell Joslin has been described as ‘a much needed gust of fresh air into the British folk scene’ (Subba-cultcha.com).

Hello people - We have an extra gig, which musically sits outside our usual kind of event, but we had to do it as we had been wanting to find Mike Cooper for ages. So, he's coming to London on October 7 , details below.

Mike Cooper + You Are Wolf + Long Pike Hollow : The Goose Is Out! The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road, London SE15 3BE. Doors open 7PM.

Tickets available here: http://www.wegottickets.com/thegooseisout

Initially a folk-blues guitarist he is as responsible as anyone else — and more so than many — for ushering in the acoustic blues boom in the U.K. in the mid ’60s. He has, arguably, stretched the possibilities of that genre even more than his better known contemporaries Davy Graham, Bert Jansch, John Renbourn etc. by pursuing it into the more avant-garde musical areas occupied by guitar innovators such as Elliott Sharp, Keith Rowe, Fred Frith and Marc Ribot, with an eclectic mix of the many styles he has practiced over the years.

"Cooper, now in his seventies, is making the most adventurous music of his life… incredibly rich and evocative, and as a live performance, it’s utterly flawless. Cooper takes live guitar processing and sampling as his raw material, using it to build something complex and substantive, full of ideas and surprises, not just abandoning it half-formed. – (Jonathan Dean – Brainwashed.)

Mike is coming over from his home in Italy specially to perform at the Goose, so please do come and see him!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y4nmAH5H2GE

You Are Wolf is Kerry Andrew, she explores English and American folk and original leftfield pop with gentle touches of electronica, weaves in spoken word and throws in an array of wild vocal techniques. She has been played on BBC 6Music by Tom Robinson, Gideon Coe and Stuart Maconie, Radio 3’s Late Junction and New York’s premier indie radio station WFUV.
http://www.youarewolf.com/

Long Pike Hollow is the alter ego of Piers Haslam, who has also appeared at the Goose many times.
In this incarnation, free rein is allowed for excursions into more experimental musical terrain with ‘American Primitive’ guitar as a starting point.

Next up this Thursday 13 October at The White Horse , Peckham , London SE15 4JR. 7PM.

Cath & Phil Tyler.

Floorsingers welcome. Pay on the door £7.

Every time we have seen Cath and Phil Tyler singing they have completely blown us away, and we are sure tonight will be no exception.

Cath & Phil Tyler play Anglo-American folk music using guitar, banjo, voice and fiddle. Coming together musically through a shared love of traditional narrative song, full voiced sacred harp singing and sparse mountain banjo, they have performed on stages as diverse as the Royal Opera House in London and a dank tower in the old city walls of Newcastle.

They have been described as ‘one of the most compelling musical partnerships on the scene’, their music being ‘a highly concentrated and intimate musical experience that penetrates to the very rawest essence of folk tradition’.

Next up John Spiers at The Ivy House ( recently described by one reviewer as a " Pale Ale Palace" )  :D


John Spiers + Aartwork + Emma & The Hot Tub Men @ The Goose Is Out! The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road London SE15 3BE  Friday 28 Oct

Doors open 7PM. Live music from 8PM.

Tickets available here : http://www.wegottickets.com/thegooseiosut


Ex Bellowhead, Ex Spiers and Boden, melodeon player extraordinaire – we are delighted to be welcoming John Spiers back to the Goose, this time in a solo capacity!

It was only during his time studying natural sciences at King’s College, Cambridge that John bought his first melodeon as a way of continuing to play music in a room too small to house a piano. This chance purchase opened up a whole world of new music making and the early exposure to morris dancing suddenly found a context. Highly influenced by the recordings of John Kirkpatrick and with the generous support of the local folk club, his playing advanced very quickly indeed,

John would also take his Melodeon out and about to pub sessions. It was at one such session he met Jon Boden, and the rest they say ...

Aartwork offer something quite eclectic With fiddle and recorder on melody, jazzy acoustic guitar, electric bass and cahon/drums in the rhythm section, Aartwork blend original Celtic style tunes with bluesy/jazzy grooves.

Emma & The Hot Tub Men play an eclectic mixture of original blues and traditional folk songs, with the odd French cover thrown in.

Thomas McCarthy + Local Traditional Singers : The Goose Is Out! The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road. London SE15 3BE.

Tickets available from http://www.wegottickets.com/thegooseisout

Thomas McCarthy has been absolutely brilliant every time we have seen him sing, including every time he has been to the Goose, so we don’t expect this concert to be any different!

Thomas is a singer from an Irish Traveller family in Birr, County Offaly. From a considerable dynasty of traditional singers, song-makers and musicians, Thomas grew up surrounded by the singing of his late mother, her father and aunts and uncles and now lives in London.

Having spent his life learning the songs of his family, in 2008 Thomas sang publicly for the first time at the folk club at London’s Cecil Sharp House. By the following year, he had sung at the most prominent folk festivals and clubs in Ireland and England, appeared on BBC Radio, and has since shared a stage with many well known performers including Lou Killen and The Copper Family and has won the praises of many other respected musicians besides.

Support tonight will be from a variety of local traditional singers. Regulars of both our Club nights and Singarounds.

‘The greatest Irish traditional singer in fifty years’ – Joe Power, Conneries’ Singing Club, Waterford

This will be a great night, Don’t miss this!

Loreley Album Launch : Thursday 12 January. 7PM. The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road, Nunhead, London SE15 3BE.

£7 On the door. Floorspots very welcome.

We originally booked Loreley to support The Furrow Collective on the basis of their EP "Two Blind Mice"

When we saw them live, we really liked them (and so did the audience) so we booked them to headline our first club night at its new venue of The Ivy House!

Loreley are an exciting young folk duo from Reading who play a mixture of traditional folk lyrics and new music composed by themselves.

Since forming in 2014, Maddy Glenn (vocals, whistle, percussion) and Simon James Chisholm (mandolin, guitar, concertina) have gone from strength to strength: releasing their highly-acclaimed debut EP, “Two Blind Mice”, in early 2015 followed by a full-length album, “Fortified”, in December.

In the short space of time that they have been together Loreley have managed to break out of their local music scene and begin building a name for themselves all over the South East, cemented by a small tour of folk clubs and festivals in early 2016. Their smooth transitions between musical styles and a live performance that gets more engaging with every show make this duo one to keep an eye on in the future.

Simon & Maddy will be launching their new album " The Frozen North" tonight. They need a hand to get physical copies printed, here's a link to their Kickstarter page, with information about how you can help.

Big gig on the 24th ......

Phil Beer + Sumner Anderson + Rosewood : The Goose Is Out! The Ivy House 40 Stuart Road. SE15 3BE.
Friday 24 Feb. Doors 7pm.

Tickets here: http://www.wegottickets.com/thegooseisout

Phil is one half of folk supergroup Show Of Hands and is much in demand as a multi-instrumentalist and producer. He has been described by the Guardian as ‘where Steve Earle and Richard Thompson collide’. He was nominated for the coveted Musician of the Year title in the 2009 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. He is perhaps best known as a top-flight fiddler, but his skills don’t stop there: he also plays slide, Spanish and tenor guitars, mandocello, viola, mandolin and South American cuatro, not to mention contributing his rich and remarkable vocals.
http://www.philbeer.co.uk/

Sumner Anderson are Rob Anderson & Anne Sumner they formed a partnership in early 2016. Both were singer-songwriters in their own right, and regulars on the London open mic circuit. A chance conversation led them to a musical experiment, the results of which have been as surprising as they are irresistible.

Their backgrounds couldn’t be more different. Anne grew up in ‘80s and ‘90s south-east England, was raised at the piano, writing songs through her teens but only taking up the guitar much later in a bid to expand her songwriting and performing potential. Rob has been playing guitar for over 40 years, influenced by his US west-coast upbringing, always returning to his American country folk roots. He’s collaborated with singer-songwriters from Oregon to Oval, and began writing his own material while fronting The Wayne Drury Project in 2011. With virtually no common musical influences, it’s a combination that, on paper shouldn’t work – and yet onlookers have consistently and enthusiastically agreed that it does.
http://www.sumneranderson.com/music

Rosewood sing and play traditional and contemporary songs and instrumentals, some of which they have written themselves. Their unique features are the range of their source material and the array of instruments they play. These include bandoneon, footbass, hammered dulcimer, bagpipes, bouzouki, and deskbells. Two members of Rosewood were previously in Crownstreet, who you may have heard of.

Our next club night at the award winning Ivy House, Londons' first community owned pub.......


Jack Harris : The Goose Is Out! Thursday 9 March, The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road. SE15 3BE.

Doors open 7pm.Live Music from 8pm. £7 on the door. Floorspots welcome.

We are delighted to see the brilliant Jack Harris finally getting the wider recognition he so richly deserves.

Jack is receiving much deserved praise for his new album " The Wide Afternoon", songs from which I'm sure you'll be hearing tonight.




Jack’s songs tell searching stories of human experience and reveal a maturity and understanding far beyond his years. His rich, complex lyrics and his powerful melodies draw upon a diverse range of influences – from the music of Tom Waits, Lyle Lovett and Laura Nyro

"A most remarkable discovery" - fRoots

"Poetic and powerful folk melodies" - The Guardian.

“Jack Harris is a priest of song who holds himself to a rigorous, ancient code of beauty most of us have forgotten exists.” – Anais Mitchell

Our next concert night with Oysters3 at The Ivy House ......

Having followed The Oyster Band since more or less their beginnings way back in the mists of time (well, the eighties) we are delighted to be welcoming the three founding members to the Goose for the first time!

Oysterband from a different angle… By popular demand, Oysters 3 take to the road again in 2017.

John Jones, Alan Prosser and Ian Telfer, the three founder members and creative heart of folk-rock legends Oysterband, invite you to an evening of fresh acoustic performance and off-the-wall stories – an insight into their history, sometimes turbulent, often funny, with great songs from every era of a unique career.

“The very first time we did this, we more or less improvised the show. We were astonished when it went down a storm – and we wondered why on earth we’d never thought of doing it before!”

Hadrian’s Union are a five piece Contemporary Folk Rock band from (they say) the debateable lands of England and Scotland.
Their influences include: Lindisfarne, Home Service, Stackridge, Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band - should be an interesting set :)
ulian is a 19­ year­ old singer­/songwriter from Hamburg (Germany) who recently moved to London.

Before starting his music studies in Fulham he had played numerous gigs in his hometown ­solo and with his former Band “Northern Fall”. Combining folky guitar elements with popular song structures he describes his music as “Folk­Pop” though emphasizes that he is influenced by more than these two.

Still trying to establish himself in the music scene, he is playing in bars all over London hoping to reach his listeners and to build a small fan base.

Singaround at The Ivy House 7pm Sunday     http://thegooseisout.com/april-singaround-4/


Also ....... on Thursday 13 April at The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Rd, Nunhead, London SE15 3BE. Hannah Sanders & Ben Savage

The Goose has long been an admirer of Hannah Sanders’ lovely voice, ever since she dropped in to one of our Singarounds en route to somewhere else (though SE15 was hardly on the way! We’re glad you did, Hannah!)

She has now teamed up with Ben Savage, and the results are stunning. But don’t just take our word for it …….

“Spellbinding… Hannah & Ben were born to play & sing together.” fRoots

“They have created an exquisite soundscape, which is the result of passion, precision and unbridled intimacy… An album to venerate.” R2 Magazine

We are delighted to be welcoming Hannah and Ben to our club night at The Ivy House. Doors open 7pm. Live music from 8pm. £7 on the door, no advance booking.

Floorspots are very welcome!

Our next concert at The Ivy House, Nunhead, London SE15

Ewan McLennan + The Foxglove Trio + Ian Kennedy & Sarah Lloyd: The Goose Is Out! The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road SE15 3BE. Saturday 29 April.

Doors open 7pm. Tickets available over the bar at the Ivy House, on the night where available and in advance from http://www.wegottickets.com/thegooseisout

It is always a pleasure to welcome Ewan McLennan to the Goose. We first came across him back in the day when a demo CD was thrust into our hand at the end of a concert (we won’t embarrass him by saying who thrust it – oh, OK, we will – it was his mum ) We hadn’t met Ewan at that point.

As soon as we heard it, we booked him to support Faustus – we were still holding our concerts at DHFC at that point. After that, Ewan headlined at a couple of our club nights, and then at concerts, including our refugee benefit concert in January 2016, where he was joint headliner with Thomas McCarthy

Most recently, Ewan has been working with the writer George Monbiot on a project “Breaking the Spell of Loneliness”, which has been featured on television as well as at live gigs around the country. Tonight Ewan is appearing solo, and we are really looking forward to it.

The Foxglove Trio is a group of multi-instrumentalists who perform mostly traditional songs from around the British Isles in English and Welsh. Gathering material from sessions, published song collections and contemporary artists, these talented musicians are making a name for themselves on the UK folk scene for their beautiful harmonies, creative new arrangements and engaging live performances.

Many of you will know Ian Kennedy and Sarah,Lloyd who have been going from strength to strength since starting to come to our singarounds way back when we first began.

They are a real part of the Goose family (well they aren’t related to Nyge and Sue, obviously, at least not as far as we know ) and we are delighted that they are able to replace Aimee and Emmie who are no longer able to sing tonight.

Next up at The Ivy House ... Stick In The Wheel ...

Stick In The Wheel : The Goose Is Out! , The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road SE15 3BE. Doors open 7pm.Live Music from 8pm, £7. Pay when you come in. No advance tickets.

Floorspots very welcome.

OK we know we shouldn’t have favourites, but IF we did, then Stick in the Wheel would deffo be amongst them!

They blew us away the first time we ever saw them live, and they have continued to do so ever since.

“Stick In The Wheel have a knack for breathing fresh life into well-worn traditional material. Their reading of Seven Gypsies doesn’t really do much to alter the content, but the delivery somehow makes it sound new” – FRUK

“There is a pleasingly raw, simple and authentic sound to their music” – Bright Young Folk

” Folk revivalists with a punk attitude” – The Guardian

As always, Stick have been doing some really innovative things lately, including curating “From Here” – an album featuring new field recordings by Jon Boden, John Kirkpatrick, Martin Carthy, Spiro, Eliza Carthy, Fay Hield, Sam Lee, Fran Foote (SITW), Jack Sharp (Wolf People), Nicola Kearey (SITW), Men Diamler, Bella Hardy, Stew Simpson, Lisa Knapp, Peta Webb & Ken Hall, Sam Sweeney and Rob Harbron.

Last time Stick were at The Ivy House, they were supporting Jim Causley and it will be great to see them headlining here in their own right. Hooray!

The Goose goes Blues for a night ..... See below  

Alan Glen & Dave Peabody + Simon Prager & Doc Stenson + Robert Chaney : The Goose Is Out! The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road, SE15 3BE. Friday 26 May. 7PM.
Tickets available https://www.wegottickets.com/thegooseisout

Alan Glen is best known for his work with The Yardbirds, Nine Below Zero, Little Axe, and his own band The Barcodes.

Dave Peabody has been voted ‘Acoustic Blues Artist of the Year’ 3 times by the British Blues Connection and Blues In Britain magazine. He’s also been a guitar accompanist for such U.S. blues artists as legendary Mississippi guitarist David ‘Honeyboy’ Edwards.

Simon Prager has been involved in the British blues scene since the ‘60s. He played occasionally with the late JoAnn Kelly and accompanied Sonny Terry when half of that legendary duo, Brownie McGhee, became ill. Now he performs solo and in various other combinations, tonight as part of a duo with Kevin ‘Doc’ Stenson.

‘Doc’ Stenson sings and plays guitar, blues, country and Celtic harmonica. He played in the folk blues and R’n’B circuits with his own bands for a long time.

 Robert Chaney hails from sunny South Florida. His songs  woven from tabloid headlines, crimes, and love affairs. Stretched within their warp are threads of the dusty shellac blues of the 20s and 30s, the hyper-violent pulp noir of the 40s, the cable-knit folk revival of the 50s, and the French celluloid new wave of the 60s.

Danny Pedler & Rosie Butler-Hall : The Goose Is Out! The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road, Nunhead, SE15 3BE. Doors open 7pm. Floorspots very welcome. £7 on the door. No advance booking for this gig.

Danny Pedler & Rosie Butler-Hall were last at the Goose when they supported Martin Carthy and Eliza Carthy in 2016, and we are delighted to be welcoming them back tonight as headliners in their own right.

These two young dynamic musicians formed as a duo in late 2011. Danny (from Essex) plays Hurdy Gurdy and Accordion and Rosie (from Wiltshire) plays five-string fiddle and sings. They play mostly English and French songs and tunes.

Their music is characterised by flowing melodies, intricate harmonies and strong rhythms, whilst keeping the flavour of the traditional style.

"Energetic, yet refined, expressive but totally rooted in the groove, these two musicians effortlessly delight and compel the listener.!" - John Dipper (English Acoustic Collective, Methera, Morris Offspring and Dipper & Daniels)

It is far too long since Chris Foster came to the Goose way back in 2010, so we are really pleased that he was able to come over from Iceland to sing for us tonight.

“Chris Foster merits legend status, one of the very best in the second wave of the Brit folk revival, as important as Martin Carthy, Dick Gaughan and Nic Jones in the way he has modernised and invested traditional songs with inventive guitar arrangements and potent vocal delivery.” Colin Irwin – fROOTS

fruk (Folk Radio UK) describe Chris's new album Hadelin as "again pushing the boundaries of traditional music."

Thomas McCarthy, Donal Maguire, Racker Donnelly : The Goose Is Out! The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road, SE15 3BE. Friday 29 Sept.. Doors open 7pm.
Tickets : http://www.wegottickets.com/thegooseisout


Thomas McCarthy has appeared at the Goose several times, including at our benefit concert in aid of Help Refugees, and each time has been absolutely brilliant.Tonight he is replacing Gerry O’Reilly, thanks Thomas!

Thomas is a singer from an Irish Traveller family in Birr, County Offaly. From a considerable dynasty of traditional singers, song-makers and musicians, Thomas grew up surrounded by the singing of his late mother, her father and aunts and uncles and now lives in London.

‘The greatest Irish traditional singer in fifty years’ – Joe Power, Conneries’ Singing Club, Waterford

http://www.thomasmccarthyfolk.com/


Dónal Maguire has long been a well-known face on the folk scene. He was a resident at the Singers Club back in the day, along with Ewan MacColl and Peggy Seeger.

While Dónal has been primarily associated with unaccompanied singing, he has significant other ‘strings to his bow’. He is a fine interpreter of contemporary material, as well as an excellent singer of traditional material, and can accompany himself on a range of stringed instruments. He is universally recognised as one of the finest players of Irish dance music on mandolin and tenor banjo

http://www.donalmaguire.co.uk/index.html


You won’t have heard anything like Racker Donnelly. Unless of course, you’ve seen Racker Donnelly before. In which case you will have (and will be here tonight!)

Brilliant. Genius. Lovely stuff – BBC Radio 4

A wonderful performer – Martin Carthy

Never less than brilliant. The best performance poet I’ve ever heard: a breath of fresh air on the London folk scene. Racker for Poet Laureate! – Ken Hall

Thursday 12 Oct. 7pm. £7 on the door. Floorspots welcome.

Carol Anderson is a highly regarded London based fiddler from Aberdeenshire, who has previously headlined at the Goose with Stuart Forester.

She has a distinctive style combining East Coast and West Coast influences, stemming from her early tuition from Jean-Ann Callender, a native of Lochaber, and later tuition at summer schools from Aonghas Grant.

Carol has a keen interest in Scottish pipe music, and this is reflected in her repertoire.

We are delighted she is coming back solo to headline a club night.

We regret that the gig with Jim Causley scheduled for this Friday at The Ivy House has, by mutual agreement between ourselves, Jim and Jims' agent been cancelled due to poor ticket sales. It's certainly not something we wanted to do, but as we sell near enough all our tickets through online advance booking we felt we had to. We're sorry we had to do this, but hope people will understand.

Tim Jones is one of the most distinctive voices on the London folk scene, able to alternate between mass singalongs and powerful stripped back ballads, his songwriting and delivery of traditional material have been likened to that of Peter Bellamy, Nic Jones and Fairport Convention.
