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://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.

TOM PALEY Friday 12th October details below:

Friday 12 October 2012 - Upstairs at The Mag, Doors open 7.45pm, Live music from 8.00pm.
The Mag, 211 Lordship Lane, East Dulwich, SE22 8HA.

£6 on the door only.

We’re delighted to welcome Tom Paley to the Goose in October.
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 his instrumental 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.

Phillip Henry & Hannah Martin @ The Goose Is Out! Upstairs at The Mag, Friday 9th November, 7.45pm £6. 211 Lordship Lane, East Dulwich, SE22 8HA.

Floorspots always welcome.

Phillip Henry is considered by many to be one of the finest slide guitarists this country has ever produced, bringing together folk melodies of the British Isles, blues, gospel and Indian music in his moving and original compositions and arrangements.

Hannah is a singer, songwriter, banjo-and-fiddle player from Devon, with a keen interest in traditional music. Her songs weave folklore and legend old and new, with beautiful melodies and innovative arrangements, whilst retaining a strong sense of the living tradition.

"Authentic, haunting roots music from a first class duo" (Seth Lakeman),

Our next two nights... two consecutive Saturdays at The Mag 211 Lordship Lane, East Dulwich, London. SE22 8HA.



Fran McGillivray & Mike Burke + Katie Brayben  @ The Goose Is Out! Upstairs at The Mag, Saturday 24th November. Doors 7.45pm, £6.

Fran & Mike
Fran and Mike have been playing together as a duo since the late 70s. Mike is an excellent blues guitarist, beautifully expressive. Fran plays bass and flute but her main instrument is her exquisite voice. They play a mixture of blues classics plus many of their own compositions.

"The material is beautifully, grippingly balanced - heartbreakingly poignant one minute, rousingly upbeat the next - and the acoustic settings give it all an illuminating freshness" fRoots

http://youtu.be/VEpjHjNZSx4

Katie Brayben
A superb singer/songwriter from south east London, with a clear and subtle voice also achieving success as an actress in the west end, a past  Offie award nominee. Her influences include Nick Drake , Ani Di Franco plus more.

Wizz Jones + Jason Steel + Rob Anderson @ The Goose Is Out! Upstairs at The Mag, Saturday 1st December. Doors 7.45pm. £6.

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.

http://www.jasonsteel.co.uk/first.html
http://youtu.be/l0DQHVTM2lk


Rob Anderson
We are delighted to be welcoming Rob back to the Goose to support Wizz tonight.
Rob has appeared at the Goose several times, the first time supporting Alasdair Roberts, and the last time with his fabulous Wayne Drury Project!
Rob is a superb singer and guitarist from Oregon USA and a firm favourite at the Goose Is Out!

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.

New Year, New venue ... we look forward to seeing you.

Floorspots welcome as always.

Thomas McCarthy 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.

Tickets: http://www.wegottickets.com/thegooseisout[/color]

Jackie Oates
Jackie Oates is a singer and fiddle player hailing from Staffordshire. Her unique treatment of English ballads and songs, and pure, haunting singing style has attracted increasing attention.
Since appearing as a finalist in the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Awards 2003, she has performed extensively at festivals and folk clubs across the country, in a solo capacity and with a number of bands. She was a founder member of Northumbrian group and Mercury nominated Rachel Unthank and the Winterset until early 2007. Tonight Jackie is accompanied by guitarist Tristan Seume.

‘Oates remains the sweetest voice of her generation ’ Independent On Sunday ****


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eMYqTMmoPec

Suntrap
Suntrap perform both their own material and the best of the traditional and contemporary folk repertoire. The songwriters (Sara Byers and Paul Hoad) create original, innovative works drawing on English song tradition and American Folk & Country.
Suntrap play all over the UK and Europe at major folk festivals, folk clubs and arts centres. When not headlining, Suntrap have supported such major artists as Kate Rusby, Kathryn Tickell, Waterson Carthy, Martin Carthy, The Albion Band, The Oyster Band and Vin Garbutt.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hKDhUagkxac&feature=relmfu

Stuart Forester
Stuart Forester is a singer/songwriter/guitarist and mountain dulcimer player from Cumbria, who is firmly based in the folk storytelling tradition.
His songs recount tales of gypsy funerals, fox hunting, North Sea trawler fishing, dustmen and skinheads, 16th century prostitutes, fairground workers, emigration, piracy on the Irish Sea and the odd protest rant for good measure.
Stuart was born in Cumbria and from six months old raised in mobile homes and tents in Canada and Alaska during the Forester family’s three year great adventure.

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.

Alasdair Roberts + You Are Wolf + Until The Bird, The Crown and Greyhound, May 31. Doors 7.pm.

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  Smiley

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.

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. You can sing from your seat if you want.

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 ........

Lots more information about the evening from

http://www.thegooseisout.com

Hope to see lots of you there!


Also here's details of our first gig of the autumn with Stuart Forester

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  Smiley


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 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 the late Lou Killen and The Copper Family and has won the praises of many other respected musicians besides.
