Floorspots always welcome. Doors open 7.45 pm, Live Music from 8.00pm. £7 on the door (no advance booking).

It is always a pleasure to welcome Hazel and Emily Askew to the Goose, and we are delighted that they are coming back to headline our first club night of 2016!

Our next monthly event at the Ivy House will be ......



Wizz Jones + City Ramblers Revival + Joe Wilkes : The Goose Is Out! The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road. Friday 29 Jan. Doors open 7PM.

Tickets available here : http://www.wegottickets.com/thegooseisout
or from the Ivy House, or on the door at the gig.


Inspired by hearing Big Bill Broonzy and Ramblin’ Jack Elliot, Wizz Jones learnt his guitar licks from the likes of Davy Graham and Long John Baldry whilst playing in the coffee bars of London’s Soho in the late 1950’s.

He then followed the time-honoured buskers’ trail from the streets of Paris to the markets of Marrakech during the early 1960’s and returned to Britain with a unique acoustic guitar style,
an eclectic repertoire and a ‘right hand worthy of Broonzy’!

John Renbourn, Clapton and Keith Richards have all named him as an important early influence and in May 2012 Bruce Springsteen opened his Berlin show with Wizz’s song ‘When I Leave Berlin’.
After more than 50 years ‘on the road’ Wizz continues to tour on the Acoustic Folk and Blues circuit, usually solo but sometimes with his Son Simeon on Sax, Flute and Harmonica.”

City Ramblers Revival are named after the famous late 50’s group the City Ramblers, regulars on BBC Radio and TV’s Six Five Special, and resident band of the Skiffle Cellar, Soho.

They recorded for Tempo Records and Storyville and played at the Moscow International Youth Festival in 1957. Today, CRR are Hylda Sims (guitar/vocals), Simon Prager (guitar/vocals) and Doc Stenson (guitar/mouth harp/vocals).

Hylda Sims, a founder member of the original City Ramblers, writes songs, poetry and novels and hosts Fourth Friday, an acoustic music and poetry event at the Poetry Cafe in Covent Garden.

Simon Prager & Doc Stenson, excellent musicians and entertainers, are veterans of the acoustic blues and folk scene in the UK.

Joe Wilkes is a fantastic singer songwriter whom Americana UK has said is “one of those all-too-rare musicians who, when they play, make you believe in them instantly.” . Joe has been playing around London , the USA and Europe for a number of years. He lives in south london,

Here's what's up next - Laura Smyth & Ted Kemp at the White Horse (Club Night) and John Kirkpatrick at the Ivy House (Concert)

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

Laura Smyth & Ted Kemp : The White Horse, 20-22 Peckham Rye, London SE15 4JR Thursday 7 April , 7.30 PM.

Floorspots welcome. £7 (Pay on the door)

Laura Smyth and Ted Kemp perform traditional songs from England and beyond, with special attention given to their respective homes in the North West and East Anglia. While placing great value on unaccompanied solo and harmony singing, they also accompany themselves on English concertina, 5-string banjo, cello, and guitar.

Laura and Ted interpret and deliver their music with a reverence for traditional performers and source material, taking influence from the classic folk revival performers of the 60s and 70s, whilst achieving a style that is very much their own.

We think they’re brilliant. Judge for yourself from the youtube clip below – then come and see them at the Goose!

https://youtu.be/JCZji0ZdwBk

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

John Kirkpatrick + Rachel Taylor-Beales + Russell Joslin : The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road, SE15 3BE, Friday 29 APRIL 7PM.

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

Tickets are also available from The Ivy House, and will be on sale on the night, if we don't sell out in advance first.

It is always a great pleasure to welcome John Kirkpatrick to the Goose. Many of you will have seen him last year with Brass Monkey, however this will be his first time solo at the Ivy House.

John is an astonishing musician, has a huge repetoire, and is very entertaining.

John is one of the most prolific figures on the English folk scene, performing solo, in duos, acoustic groups and electric bands, and has established an enviable reputation as an instrumental virtuoso and session musician, as well as a leading interpreter of English folk music. He has been a member of the Albion Country Band, Magic Lantern, The Richard Thompson Band, Steeleye Span, Brass Monkey, and Band of Hope, as well as numerous ceilidh bands.

Our supports tonight will be Rachel Taylor-Beales and Russell Roslin

Rachel Taylor-Beales is a singer-songwriter who cannot be slotted neatly into any one genre. As her website says, she sits somewhere at the crossroads of folk, blues, roots and jazz.

Her latest album is inspired by the mythological Selkie (seal-folk) stories from the Orkney Isles.

http://www.racheltaylor-beales.com/

Russell Joslin has been described as ‘a much needed gust of fresh air into the British folk scene’ (Subba-cultcha.com).

Thanks for the info. Can I just say that the colour of the text makes it very difficult to read? A higher contrast colour would be more suitable.

Hello people - We have an extra gig, which musically sits outside our usual kind of event, but we had to do it as we had been wanting to find Mike Cooper for ages. So, he's coming to London on October 7 , details below.

Mike Cooper + You Are Wolf + Long Pike Hollow : The Goose Is Out! The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road, London SE15 3BE. Doors open 7PM.

Tickets available here: http://www.wegottickets.com/thegooseisout

Initially a folk-blues guitarist he is as responsible as anyone else — and more so than many — for ushering in the acoustic blues boom in the U.K. in the mid ’60s. He has, arguably, stretched the possibilities of that genre even more than his better known contemporaries Davy Graham, Bert Jansch, John Renbourn etc. by pursuing it into the more avant-garde musical areas occupied by guitar innovators such as Elliott Sharp, Keith Rowe, Fred Frith and Marc Ribot, with an eclectic mix of the many styles he has practiced over the years.

"Cooper, now in his seventies, is making the most adventurous music of his life… incredibly rich and evocative, and as a live performance, it’s utterly flawless. Cooper takes live guitar processing and sampling as his raw material, using it to build something complex and substantive, full of ideas and surprises, not just abandoning it half-formed. – (Jonathan Dean – Brainwashed.)

Mike is coming over from his home in Italy specially to perform at the Goose, so please do come and see him!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y4nmAH5H2GE

You Are Wolf is Kerry Andrew, she explores English and American folk and original leftfield pop with gentle touches of electronica, weaves in spoken word and throws in an array of wild vocal techniques. She has been played on BBC 6Music by Tom Robinson, Gideon Coe and Stuart Maconie, Radio 3’s Late Junction and New York’s premier indie radio station WFUV.
http://www.youarewolf.com/

Long Pike Hollow is the alter ego of Piers Haslam, who has also appeared at the Goose many times.
In this incarnation, free rein is allowed for excursions into more experimental musical terrain with ‘American Primitive’ guitar as a starting point.

Next up this Thursday 13 October at The White Horse , Peckham , London SE15 4JR. 7PM.

Cath & Phil Tyler.

Floorsingers welcome. Pay on the door £7.

Every time we have seen Cath and Phil Tyler singing they have completely blown us away, and we are sure tonight will be no exception.

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.

They have been described as ‘one of the most compelling musical partnerships on the scene’, their music being ‘a highly concentrated and intimate musical experience that penetrates to the very rawest essence of folk tradition’.

Next up John Spiers at The Ivy House ( recently described by one reviewer as a " Pale Ale Palace" )  Cheesy


John Spiers + Aartwork + Emma & The Hot Tub Men @ The Goose Is Out! The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road London SE15 3BE  Friday 28 Oct

Doors open 7PM. Live music from 8PM.

Tickets available here : http://www.wegottickets.com/thegooseiosut


Ex Bellowhead, Ex Spiers and Boden, melodeon player extraordinaire – we are delighted to be welcoming John Spiers back to the Goose, this time in a solo capacity!

It was only during his time studying natural sciences at King’s College, Cambridge that John bought his first melodeon as a way of continuing to play music in a room too small to house a piano. This chance purchase opened up a whole world of new music making and the early exposure to morris dancing suddenly found a context. Highly influenced by the recordings of John Kirkpatrick and with the generous support of the local folk club, his playing advanced very quickly indeed,

John would also take his Melodeon out and about to pub sessions. It was at one such session he met Jon Boden, and the rest they say ...

Aartwork offer something quite eclectic With fiddle and recorder on melody, jazzy acoustic guitar, electric bass and cahon/drums in the rhythm section, Aartwork blend original Celtic style tunes with bluesy/jazzy grooves.
http://www.aartwork.co.uk/

Emma & The Hot Tub Men play an eclectic mixture of original blues and traditional folk songs, with the odd French cover thrown in.

Next up at The White Horse, Peckham we have the insanely talented up and coming guitarist/singer/songwriter Elliott Morris !

Elliott Morris : The Goose Is Out! The White Horse 20-22 Peckham Rye SE15 4JR. Thursday 10 November.

Floorspots Welcome, £7 on the door.

With hundreds of gigs behind him – and a coveted Danny Kyle Award from Celtic Connections 2013 – Elliott Morris has a formidable reputation as one of the hardest-working and most sought-after young artists on the acoustic scene.

The singer-songwriter, featured in Acoustic magazine as ‘The Next Big Thing’, taps the strings and beats the guitar’s body to create an intricate spectacle, together with an original and unique sound integral to his songs.

Elliott has been described as a ‘fearsome young guitarist’, playing a mix of folk and country, tinged with blues.

Here's what they say:

“Lovely playing!” Martin Carthy

“Extraordinary ... absurdly talented” Tom Robinson, BBC 6Music

Thomas McCarthy + Local Traditional Singers : The Goose Is Out! The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road. London SE15 3BE.

Tickets available from http://www.wegottickets.com/thegooseisout

Thomas McCarthy has been absolutely brilliant every time we have seen him sing, including every time he has been to the Goose, so we don’t expect this concert to be any different!

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.

Support tonight will be from a variety of local traditional singers. Regulars of both our Club nights and Singarounds.

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

This will be a great night, Don’t miss this!
