The Trimdon gig was indeed a " Corker"  Smiley

Winter Wilson: The Goose Is Out! The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road, SE15 3BE. Thursday 8 November, 7pm **Floorspots welcome** £7 on the door.

Winter Wilson are a Lincolnshire based duo who combine great singing and harmonies with beautiful original songs written by Dave Wilson (vocals, guitar and banjo). The other half of the duo is Kip Winter (vocals, accordion, guitar, flute)

They have recently released their album “Far Off on the Horizon”, which follows the well-received “Ashes and Dust”, and have not long finished a huge tour supporting Fairport Convention.

This will be our last Thursday club night of 2018, so it would be great to see lots of you there!

" A rare assured passion" John Tams

“Kip Winter simply has a voice to die for” (John Roffey, Maverick Magazine),

"In 30 years of listening to folk music, I have never heard two voices blend so perfectly"
David Aird, Glenfarg Folk Club

Mitchell & Vincent: The Goose Is Out! The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road SE15 3BE. Thursday 10 Jan. £8 ON THE DOOR, Floorspots welcome.

Based in the West country and bringing traditional and contemporary styles on fiddle and guitar to folk tunes and songs from around the British Isles with varied arrangements and great foot-tapping folk music. They supported Jackie Oates a while back to a friendly and receptive audience.

As well as performing locally in Somerset and Dorset, they regularly play around the U.K. at a whole variety of concerts, festivals, events and venues from small house concerts and parties to large halls and marquees including Glastonbury Festival, Broadstairs Folk Week, Beverley Folk festival and Lyme Folk Weekend.

Bright Young Folk has perhaps described them best with, “Their sound is much deeper and richer than you would expect from an acoustic duo. Intricate instrumentalism and pulsing rhythms abound ... providing skilled arrangements and expert delivery of tunes and songs which showcase the vibrancy, and variety, of folk music across Britain. A thoroughly engaging and enjoyable experience.”

John Otway & Wild Willy Barrett + Andy Twyman: The Goose Is Out! The Ivy House, Friday 25 January.

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


We're very excited to welcome back John Otway to The Goose Is Out, this time with multi-instrumentalist Wild Willy Barrett.

This gig is a 2019 tour preview, the tour will be in May/June.

Otway and Barrett have a magnetic bond that still holds after more than 40 years. They are widely loved for their total in-yer-face originality, the contrast between the deadpan humour of Barrett and mad onstage antics of Otway is hilarious to watch. John’s lyrical genius and Willy’s outstanding musicianship (he seems to play almost every stringed instrument known to man)

For any Otway/Barrett virgins out there who don’t know what to expect, be prepared for everything from bare-chested theremin playing to wah-wah wheelie bin as the duo jump from one hit and 40 near misses to another: An amazing and irreverent performance by two master entertainers.

Andy Twyman will open for Otway & Barrett tonight he is a jaw-droppingly good one-man band who we came across at a Blues Night at The Ivy House. He’s also very funny …..

“A one-man 100% genuine blues boogie machine…like John Lee Hooker on acid” – The Blog of the Blues

Dave Webber & Anni Fentiman: The Goose Is Out! The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road, SE15 3BE. Doors open 7PM/£8 (pay as you enter, no advance booking)

Dave and Anni joined forces in 1985, after spending many years around the folk club scene, in which time they featured on several albums made by other performers.

Within a short time they teamed up with friends Charley Yarwood and his wife Cathy to form the acapella harmony group Beggars Velvet. The group were very soon in demand for clubs and festivals and recorded their only album, Lady of Autumn. They made two tours of the USA in 1990 and 1991 before they stopped performing together in 1993 after eight very successful and happy years.

Since then Dave and Anni have continued to work as a duo, making their duo debut on stage at the Eisteddfod Festival in Dartmouth Massachusetts in 1993 to begin a very successful career as a harmony duo, working largely acapella and featuring mainly traditional and traditional idiom material. They have worked extensively in the UK and the USA to much acclaim and now have five albums of their own to set alongside the Beggars Velvet recording, which is still in demand after many pressings.

“It’s a magical experience whenever these two fine singers put their voices together. As for their harmonies, they are breathtaking” – Warwick Folk Festival

“If you love traditional music delivered with strength, clarity and simplicity, you certainly won’t be disappointed with this duo” – Cornwall Folk Festival

The enthusiasm of these two fine singers for traditional and traditional style songs, comes through hot and strong, whether singing together or solo – National Folk Music Festival

This Friday 22 Feb Alasdair Roberts, Amble Skuse & David McGuinness + Jacken Elswyth + Sophie Crawford at The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road, Nunhead, London SE15 3BE. Doors open 7pm.

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


We are delighted to be hosting an inspired collaboration between  Alasdair Roberts, electronic composer Amble Skuse, and early music pianist David McGuinness.

For their  tour dates, Alasdair, Amble and David will be presenting their album "What News" in its entirety – and in all its variety, from the stirring opener 'The Dun Broon Bride' through the rollicking 'Johnny o' the Brine', the macabre and eerie 'Young Johnstone', the spare and tender 'Rosie Anderson' and 'Long A-Growing' to the near-overwhelming sonic maelstrom of 'Clerk Colven'.  This will be a rare chance to experience an extraordinary collaboration, sure to appeal to aficionados of traditional song and experimental music alike. The collaboration has received much praise from the media and the folk world including Shirley Collins who described the trio's work as " Brilliant, bold and beautiful"

There will be two great supports:  Jacken Elswyth and Sophie Crawford, see more details below.

Jacken Elswyth is a London-based banjo player exploring traditional tunes, extrapolations thereon, and improvisational pieces for clawhammer banjo. Drawing on old-time Appalachian playing alongside American Primitive guitarists and English folk revivalists, Jacken adds drone accompaniments, extended playing techniques, and elements of free playing to push at the edges of these styles and traditions.

Sophie Crawford is a folk musician from East London. She performs traditional English folk music as well as her own songs. She has recently released her first album ´Silver Pin´ with Oliver Coates.

Alden, Patterson & Dashwood: The Goose Is Out! The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road SE15 3BE, Thursday 11 April

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

If you came to see our concert with Melrose Quartet in 2018, we are sure you will remember these three!

We enjoyed their set so much that we have asked them back to headline a club night in their own right.

Christina Alden, Alex Patterson and Noel Dashwood weave rich vocal harmonies, fiddle, dobro, guitar and mandolin around beautifully written original songs and melodies.

Their music takes influence from folk traditions from both sides of the Atlantic with uplifting instrumentals and self-penned songs depicting tales of young travelers, sleepy seas and their affection for home.

★★★★ Songlines – ‘Obviously something of enormous promise’

Luke Jackson + Andrea Kempson + Les Elvin: The Goose Is Out! The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road, Nunhead, London SE15 3BE. Doors open 7PM. Friday 26 April.

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


Luke blew us away when we came across him singing to a packed room at  Rochester Sweeps quite a few years back.
He was one of the best young singers/musicians we had ever seen, and other people seemed to agree – he was nominated in 2014 for both the Horizon Award for Best Emerging Talent and the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award.

Luke Jackson is an un-pidgeonhole-able (is that a word?) singer songwriter who has traveled a fair few thousand miles around the British Isles, into pubs and bars and more recently into folk and blues clubs, venues, festivals, and  house concerts.

Luke’s songwriting draws on his experiences, family life and poignant stories he’s been told.

Luke is an accomplished performer who impresses from the outset and takes his audience on a shared journey with a full bus down the bye-ways of love, hope, sorrow, and melancholy via the service stations of folk, roots, blues, Americana and soul.

“Very powerful-impressive songs, individual playing and the singing-oh man the singing!” – Folkcast

Andrea Kempson is an Essex based singer-songwriter. Growing up on the coast of Devon it's no coincidence that her sound reflects such a landscape. Her voice captures the soulful tones of folk singers such as Laura Marling and Joni Mitchell paired with her equal talents on the guitar inspired by Jose Gonzalez and Nick Drake. Drawing from her love of folk music, learnt from her Irish roots she writes music that is full of heart and inspired by her life experiences

Les Elvin  plays guitar and harmonica, his material covers a wide range of styles from across the British Isles,  and reflects Americana influences. It also includes Celtic and dance instrumentals. Les has  played as a member of a number of lively ceilidh bands,  and currently plays bass with Worthing based country/rock band, Snakes and Ladders.

Thomas McCarthy, Ian Kennedy & Sarah Lloyd, Local Traditional Singers. The Goose Is Out! The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road, Nunhead, London SE15 3BE. Friday 24 May, 7 pm. Advance Tickets are available from https://www.wegottickets.com/thegooseisout

Thomas McCarthy came to the Goose for the first time to support Coope, Boyes & Simpson, and then did a stunning gig as a headliner in his own right!

He returned to the Goose twice in 2016 – in January as part of our Refugee Benefit Concert, and in November to headline at our final Ivy House concert of the year.

We are delighted to be welcoming him back in 2019!

And even more delighted that he has been awarded the Irish traditional music accolade of Singer of the Year at TG4’s Gradam Ceoil Award ceremony, to be held in Belfast in February 2019.

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.

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

Ian Kennedy and Sarah Lloyd will be well known to many (probably most!) of you as not only are they regular singers at our Singarounds and Thursday Club nights, but they have been staunch supporters of the Goose more or less since we began, and are often to be found on the door or at the ticket desk at our gigs.

Also supporting Thomas will be some of the other local traditional singers who sing at our Singarounds. They are Kate Owen, Elliot Clifford-Coope and Jacken Elswyth who enthralled everyone at the Roberts, Scuse & McGuinness gig recently with her extraordinary banjo playing, tonight she will sing unaccompanied.]

Here's Thomas

Jackie Oates, Tabby Barbera, Brazen Thieves. The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road, London SE15 3BE. Friday 28 June. 7pm. Tickets https://www.wegottickets.com/thegooseisout or in person from the Ivy House, or on the night.

Jackie Oates was one of the very first headliners we had at the Goose, back in the day when we were Upstairs at the EDT in East Dulwich.

We are always really happy when Jackie comes to the Goose, because we know it is going to be a great evening!

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 established her at the forefront of the new English folk revival.

Since appearing as a finalist in the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Awards 2003, she has performed extensively at festivals and venues across the country and beyond, in a solo capacity and with her band. She was a founder member of Northumbrian group and Mercury nominated Rachel Unthank and the Winterset.

‘Standing out from English folk’s remarkable new wave, Oates has the finest voice of them all ' - Independent On Sunday

‘Charming, cool and tasteful’ The Guardian

Brazen Thieves are Laura, Rebecca, Lucy and Mark.

Sisters Laura (vocals/violin) and Rebecca (vocals/guitar/concertina) were raised on folk music. They began their recent foray into folk by adapting songs and arrangements originally selected by their father, Clive Woolf, for his sets when he was playing on the scene in the late 60s/early 70s. This inspired the name Brazen Thieves.

Together as a quartet with Mark (guitar) and Lucy (vocals/cello), Brazen Thieves combine contemporary and classical influences to create new and interesting takes on traditional songs, with a strong emphasis on harmony singing.”

Based in South London, Tabby Barbera started writing songs around the age of 13, but it wasn’t until she completed a degree in illustration that she decided to pursue her musical curiosities.

With notable influences from folk, blues plus a myriad other genres, Tabby’s Barbera’s music combines lyrics with strong visual imagery, along her soft voice and accompanied by guitar or banjo. Using introspection and personal experience, combined with storytelling, her songs take you from the mountains of Pennsylvania, to the pyramids of Teotihuacan and then back to the gardens of England.

Here's Jackie

Jeff Warner : The Goose Is Out! The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road, London SE15 3BE . Thursday 12 September. Floorpspots very welcome. £8 on the door.

Jeff Warner is among America’s foremost performer/interpreters of traditional music. His songs from the lumber camps, fishing villages and mountain tops  connect 21st century audiences with the everyday lives–and artistry–of 19th century Americans. “Providing more than just rich entertainment, Jeff will leave you with a deeper appreciation of the land you live in” (Caffé Lena, Saratoga, NY). His songs, rich in local history and a sense of place, bring us the latest news from the distant past.

Jeff has performed widely, from large festivals in the UK, to clubs, festivals and schools across America. He plays concertina, banjo, guitar and several “pocket” instruments, including bones and spoons. And “he inhabits a song in a way which few singers can do” (Royal Oak Folk Club, Lewes, UK).

The Shackleton Trio: The Goose Is Out! The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road, London SE15 3BE, floorspots very welcome. £8 on the door. 7pm.

Those of you who came to see Martin Simpson last year will, we are sure, remember The Shackleton Trio.

We enjoyed their set so much (and so did the audience!) that we just had to invite them back to headline in their own right at a Thursday club night!

Formerly The Georgia Shackleton Trio, The Shackleton Trio play an exciting blend of Americana, folk and self-penned material. Accompanying herself on the fiddle, Georgia writes and performs ‘wordy songs about other people’, instrumentally influenced by British, American and Scandinavian folk traditions, with a regional twist from her native East Anglia.

This trio sees Georgia teaming up with guitar powerhouse Aaren Bennett and mandolin ace Nic Zuppardi. Together they have toured the UK, Belgium and the Netherlands and appeared at many festivals,  concert halls and folk clubs across the UK.

“Sparky, charismatic and intensely assured” – fRoots

​“An excellent debut album”  ★★★★ – R2 Magazine

Belinda Kempster & Fran Foote: The Goose Is Out! The Ivy House,40 Stuart Road SE15 3BE. Thursday 14 November. £8 on the door. Floorpsots welcome.

Sadly, due to circumstances beyond his control, Thom Ashworth, our original booking, has had to cancel tonight.

But we are so delighted to have been able to book Belinda and Fran instead at quite short notice, as they were already on our shortlist for next year!

Many of you will already know Fran Foote from Stick in the Wheel. Belinda Kempster is her mother.

They are both from Essex, sharing songs and singing together without frills or fuss.

Belinda began singing traditional songs in the 60s and has always preferred English country songs. Their family has a history of farming and working on the land, and their songs come from the work and recreation of that way of life.

Belinda and her husband John met in a folk club and Fran grew up immersed in the local folk scene, learning songs from her parents from a very young age.
