ps Nygel was that you at Sam Lee's Folklahoma stage on NYE? There was no programme so we just caught random bits of it, luckily Jon Boden with Fay and Jacob was one  Grin

Venue: The Mag 211 Lordship Lane SE22 8HA.(corner of Pellat Road) 8pm . £6/5 (floorspots/unwaged)



We are delighted to be welcoming Ewan McLennan, a fine up-and-coming traditional singer who supported Faustus so brilliantly last April at DHFC.

If you would like to sing or play, we have floor spots at this venue, and we will try to fit in as many people as possible. Coming early emailing us in advance gives you the best chance of a slot. Please note though - this is not an open mic evening for singer-songwriters, it is for traditional singers and musicians.

If you are into traditional music (of any country or culture) - singing, playing, singing along or just listening - please come along and ensure that this Goose evening can continue at the Mag!

Highly recommend Ewan, looks like things are starting to happen for him and well deserved.

Caught him at Moniaive last year and was really impressed, well worth making the effort of getting along.

Cheers

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:

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

DHFC has mixture of sofa and row seats, but we would advise getting down early if you want to get yourself a seat.

MATTHEW ORD is a London based singer and guitarist with a fresh take on the traditional music of the British Isles and North America. A dedicated musician with a deep passion for folk music from an early age, his repertoire reflects the length and breadth of these traditions, drawing together the Delta and Piedmont blues, Scots and English Ballads, jigs, reels, slow airs, nursery rhymes and protest songs, all skilfully performed with warmth and conviction.

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.

Each song is delivered in such a personalized way that you can’t help but fall in love with the dreams each character follows...... a breathtaking and lovingly constructed album"

Keith Kendrick and Sylvia Needham - Upstairs at the Mag


Venue : The Magnolia . 211 Lordship Lane . (corner of Pellatt Road) London SE22 8HA.
Doors 8.pm /Live music from 8.15pm/ £6/£5 (floorspots) . Friday 12th March.


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.


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

Also tickets still available for Martin Carthy Norma Waterson and Chris Parkinson . on March 19th , but hurry !

Doors open 7.00pm . early arrival is advised if you wish to get a seat . Supports artists tonight will be Jack Harris & Jake Wilson.

Thanks so much to Dave Swarbrick for agreeing to do this gig for us at very short notice after James Yorkston had to pull out for unavoidable reasons.

Swarb performed solo for the Goose's opening night over two years ago now, and we are delighted to have him do another solo gig tonight.


Folk legend extraordinaire, brilliant fiddler and mandolinist, ex Fairport Convention, and a very funny spinner of stories on stage , Dave needs little introduction I would imagine , however here is a biog of the man below.

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!

“...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 .  Smiley

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


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 Kirkpatrick – DHFC- Friday 21 May, Edgar Kail Way, East Dulwich, London SE22 8BD.Doors 7pm .Tickets available here ...... http://www.wegottickets.com/location/2052
Brilliant performer on the squeezebox, great singer, and a very funny guy as well John Kirkpatrick is one of the most well-known and popular performers on the British folk scene.
His amazing skill with accordion, concertina and melodeon has taken him from folk dancing to experimental rock music - and a wide range of international recording collaborations.
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 .
…..............................................................
"Kirkpatrick's buoyant presence and lust for this music sounds more rampant than ever ".
Colin Irwin - fRoots 2009
JK "delivers all the boisterous bonhomie and seasonal good cheer anyone could want ".
Joan Crump - English Dance & Song

Due to unforeseen circumstances outwith John and the Goose's control, this gig on Friday 21 May at DHFC has been postponed.

We are trying to find a date for 2011.

Everybody who bought an advance ticket, either online or offline, has been informed (if you bought one from Sue at a gig, please check your voicemail.)

Please could you spread the word to anyone you know who was intending coming to it and hadn't yet bought a ticket, as due to the very short notice we are too late to pull it from the printed listings.

Chris Foster - Upstairs at the Mag  Smiley

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]
