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

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





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.

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 AT THE MAG THIS SUNDAY 7.30 PM


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. Posted Image

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.

Jackie Oates + Suntrap + Stuart Forester @ The Crown and Greyhound, Friday 25 January. Doors 7pm.
The Crown and Greyhound 73 Dulwich Village, Dulwich, London, SE21 7BJ.
Tickets: http://www.wegottickets.com/thegooseisout


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 ****




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.




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.

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.

James Hickman & Dan Cassidy : Friday 10 May 2013 - Upstairs At The Old Nun's Head.
Doors open 7.45. £7, The Old Nun's Head,15 Nunhead Green,SE15 3QQ.


Hickman’s emotive, soaring vocals and driving guitar is complemented by Cassidy’s ingenious and virtuosic fiddling. Their sound flows from the connection between British and American folk and is bursting with all the humour, heartbreak and excitement of these genres. The lively English wit of Hickman is set against Cassidy’s bone-dry irony and American drawl as they take audiences on a dynamic and unforgettable transatlantic journey.

James' and Dan's duo was formed in 2008, beginning with several local shows in James' hometown of Shrewsbury and the surrounding county of Shropshire. Their relaxed banter and unique musical style was well received and they were soon performing further afield. The following year, with the prospect of more comprehensive tours ahead, they recorded and released their debut album ‘Severn Street’, which features arrangements of traditional songs and tunes and several of their own compositions.

Their successive tours have grown steadily in size and they now perform throughout the UK, enjoying concerts from the Scottish Highlands to the Isle of Wight. Inspired by their love of traditional music from Britain and America, James and Dan continued writing together.

Alasdair Roberts, The Crown and Greyhound, May 31. Doors 7.pm.

The Crown and Greyhound 73, Dulwich Village, SE21 7BJ

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"
