www.wegottickets.com/thegooseisout

John Kirkpatrick 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, Umps and Dumps, Steeleye Span, Brass Monkey, Trans-Europe Diatonique, and Band of Hope, as well as numerous ceilidh bands.

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.

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.


“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 good cheer anyone could want” Joan Crump, English Dance & Song

Our first gig of the autumn.

 

 

Stuart Forester: The Goose Is Out! The Old Nun's Head, 15 Nunhead Green, SE15 3QQ.

Friday 13 September, 7.45pm, £7.

Floorspots welcome
.

Stuart Forester is a South London based songwriter in the folk tradition who is a regular at the legendary Cecil Sharp House Folk Club in Camden and can be seen frequently on the London folk scene. Recent supports to Dick Gaughan, Jackie Oates, Lucy Ward, Katriona Gilmore & Jamie Roberts, Carrie Elkin and Martin Carthy have been greatly received, leading to headline bookings at some well-established London folk venues throughout 2013.

As he continues to build a formidable live reputation, A Yard Of Ale is the album that, if there is any justice in this world, will push Stuart Forester to the forefront of British folk music.


"A great singer, songwriter. He writes really finely crafted songs that feel to me to be deeply rooted in the tradition" Mike Harding.

"You feel as though you've been listening to these songs and this voice for all your life." **** R2 Magazine.

"Awesome" Dick Gaughan

Ewan McLennan + Long Lankin + Brona McVittie . Friday 25 October, The Ivy House 40 Stuart Road, Nunhead, SE15 3BE. Doors 7pm.

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


Winner of several awards including the 2011 BBC Radio 2 Horizon Award Ewan McLennan is an emerging folk artist that has been making headlines. His music combines traditional folk, with an inevitable focus on the music of Scotland, as well as his own self-penned songs that are receiving critical acclaim in their own right. BBC Radio 2's Mike Harding has said of Ewan, ‘he sings beautifully, with great sincerity and great empathy, he's terrific!’ His guitar playing, described as ‘stunning’, is influenced by the rigour and technique from his years of studying classical guitar, while retaining a unique and compelling sound in which his immersion in folk music is evident.
Ewan is returning to the Goose Is Out for his second headline concert and to the newly re-launched and community owned Ivy House in Nunhead. We know you’ll have a great evening.

More information about Ewan plus our two great supports here:

Don't forget Joe Topping at The Old Nuns' Head this Friday 11 Oct (see the post above this) :)

Here are our events for November :)

 

Tattie Jam; The Goose Is Out! Friday 8 November, 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.

Tattie Jam play (mainly Scots) traditional and folk music, with a twist. Seylan Baxter sings and plays the lead on a 5-string electric cello, and Ruaridh Pringle sings and plays dynamic accompaniment on guitar - and sometimes didgeridoo and octave mandolin; sometimes also taking the lead on mandolin. While playing and singing everything from keening slow airs and a capella dark ballads to kinetic reels and gentle or high-octane original songs (many of their songs and tunes are written by Ruaridh Pringle), their style is highly energetic, with both melodies and a strong rhythmic underpinning being bounced around between both musicians. Rich, sometimes unexpected harmonies predominate in their singing, with both singers alternating the lead.

Thomas McCarthy + Pepper & Shepherd + Ian Kennedy & Sarah Lloyd : Friday 29 Nov
The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road, SE15 3BE. Doors open 7.00pm.


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

 


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! 

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

Hello all - Hope you all have a great Christmas - Here are details of our events in January  :) 

 

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

 


Reg Meuross; The Goose Is Out ! Friday 10 January,

Upstairs At The Old Nun's Head, Door 7.45pm, live music starts 8pm floorsingers welcome, tickets £7 (on the door only). 

Reg Meuross is without doubt one of the UK’s finest singer-songwriters. Those who get him are growing in number.
A superb singer songwriter of 20 years or more, extremely highly acclaimed and a “must see” live. The quotes below are a testament to the high regard he is held in. Reg’s songs are poignant and heartfelt observations of the human condition.

“Perceptive. Beautiful and intelligent songs…Stunning!” Mike Harding 

“...beautiful” Iain Anderson BBC Radio Scotland

"Leaves And Feathers has left me speechless. He’s really earned the title of Master Storyteller.” Mick Teems, Folk Wales

‘One of Britain’s finest Singer/Songwriters’ – Time Out Magazine.
‘Reg tells it with Soul’ – Nick Lowe

John Otway + Nigel of Bermondsey + Martin Guha : Friday 31 Jan
The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road, SE15 3BE. Doors open 7.00pm. 


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

A manic presence, and a true "one-off", John first became notorious back in 1977 after an appearance on the Old Grey Whistle Test with his former partner Wild Willy Barrett.
He had leapt astride Wild Willy's amplifier, and lost his footing. One leg slipped on one side of the sturdy wooden piece of musical equipment, and the other leg down the other. The whole weight of Otway's body crashed down on the most delicate parts of his body.

This sort of behaviour went down exceedingly well with the punk audiences of the time, and Otway was rewarded with his first hit "Cor Baby, That's Really Free", a recording contract worth a million in today's money, and a sizeable live audience.
It took a little while, but a quarter of a century after that first record, John Otway was in the Top Ten again with "Bunsen Burner", promoting him in a stroke to the hallowed pantheon of "two hit wonders."

The two support artists tonight will be from Nigel of Bermondsey and Martin Guha.

John Otway is now Sold Out , so, sorry for those that wanted to come but couldn't get tickets,

 

Here are our two gigs coming up in February :)

 

 

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.

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

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.
