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

www.thegooseisout.com

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 .  Smiley

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

JON LOOMES & PAUL SCOURFIELD . @ The Goose Is Out .

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 .


Paul is a stylish and highly respected melodeon player and singer, taking material mainly from the English tradition. Inspired to take up the melodeon after going to see John Kirkpatrick at the local folk club, he has since spent a year being mentored by the great man himself.

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.


Here is a link to Jon and Paul playing at Cheletenham last year ... with the Goose Is Out nodding their heads in the front row . :-)

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


http://www.myspace.com/nancywallace


Naomi Bedford

"…achingly expressive … totally captivating …. Original and quite intriguing " Maverick

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!  Grin


Tim Van Eyken..................... http://www.myspace.com/timvaneyken

Elle Osborne ...................... http://www.myspace.com/elleosborne

Skinny Lister ..................... http://www.myspace.com/skinnylister

Mix of sofas and row seats, but we would advise getting down early if you want to get yourself a seat. DHFC also now serve club sandwiches and Paninis at the bar ... which are very yummy
