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.

Yes, it's Seasonal Singaround time again!  Smiley

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.

Lots more information about the evening from

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.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.

Jim Causley + Stick In The Wheel + Country Parish Music, Friday 28 March, The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road. London SE15 3BE. Doors 7pm.


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

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

Young Devon folk singer Jim Causley became involved with traditional music from an early age via his family, the local folk scene and an historical wassailing tradition in his village of Whimple, East Devon.

He studied Traditional Music at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne. During this time he became involved in the wider folk scene and gained great interest in folk clubs throughout the country as a solo performer. He recorded his debut album, ‘Fruits of the Earth’ on the WildGoose label in 2005.

Jim 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.

"The finest male folk singer of his generation" MOJO

Cath & Phil Tyler : The Old Nun's Head, 15 Nunhead Green, London SE15 3QQ . Friday 11 April 7.45pm, £7.

Floorsingers always welcome.


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.

 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.

 Floorsingers welcome as always.

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.

Phillip Henry & Hannah Martin + Na Mara + Jimmy Lee : The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road SE15 3QQ. Friday 27 June
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!
 Smiley
.........................


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.

 'One of the most original albums of traditional folk songs you'll hear this year' fRoots

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

 Watch Steve here:

 Support tonight will be the excellent Kate Denny and Jess Morgan details here:
