Cath & Phil Tyler: The Old Nun's Head, 15 Nunhead Green, SE15 3QQ. Friday 11 April, 7.45pm, £7 on the door.

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 Roy...al Opera House in London and a dank tower in the old city walls of Newcastle.

The Goose first saw them a couple of years back, in the very same room Upstairs At The Old Nun’s Head where they will be playing tonight, and were blown away by them.

Floorsingers welcome as always.

Our gigs for May

 

 

Suntrap, Friday May 9. The Old Nuns' Head, 15 Nunhead Lane SE15 3QQ. Doors open 7.45pm, £7.

Floorspots welcome.

Sara Byers and Mary Wilson first met in 1996, in the tiny basement folk club at Cecil Sharpe House. They soon started to sing traditional a capella folk songs together. The following year they made their first ‘demo’ at Dave Pegg’s Woodworm Studios an...d Sara asked an old band mate, Paul Hoad, if he would come and play some guitar. He enjoyed playing with them so much that he refused to leave. Since he had a very useful estate car, they let him stay.

And so Suntrap was born.

They have played all over the UK and Europe at major folk festivals, folk clubs and arts centres. The band have been privileged to open Cambridge Folk Festival, Skagen Folk Festival and Warwick Folk Festival. Radio features have included the Mike Harding Show and a live performance on Radio 4’s Loose Ends.

Doors open 7PM.
 
Advance tickets available : http://www.wegottick...m/thegooseisout
 
We are delighted to be welcoming brilliant young singer songwriter Luke Jackson to the Goose for the first time, with support from the talented Alex Seel, and a welcome return from Salwa Azar.

Luke is a rising 19 year old Roots singer/songwriter from Canterbury, Kent , and 2013 saw him nominated for both the Horizon A...ward for Best Emerging Talent and the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award.

With a bold, show stopping voice and honed guitar skills, Luke is a confident and captivating performer demonstrating an astonishing maturity. He has been making ripples on the live acoustic scene supporting such luminaries as Show of Hands, Paul Brady, Chris Wood, Steve Knightley, Karine Polwart and Oysterband. Last autumn he made his debut in Scotland, winning praise for a stand-out voice, songwriting skill and stage presence that completely belies his years.

Phillip Henry & Hannah Martin + Na Mara + Jimmy Lee : Friday 27 June, Doors 7PM . The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road, Nunhead, SE15 3BE.
 
Advance tickets available from http://www.wegottick...egooseisout.com
 
When it comes to a distinctive sound, exceptional duo Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin have shown they are in a league of their own.

One of the most inventive and captivating rising acts on the acoustic roots scene they unveiled their evocative second studio album in September to marked acclaim from all quarters. From ...the West Country hotspot of musical talent, the harmonious Devon duo followed up their 2012 debut Singing the Bones with the moving and mystical Mynd (Old English for memory and remembrance) - an exquisite 12-track album infused with Phil's trademark instrumental virtuosity, Hannah's clear vocals and the pair's highly original thought-provoking songs often trawled from some of the less obvious moments in history.

Widely regarded as one of the best slide guitarists in the UK, Lancashire-born multi instrumentalist Phillip Henry has been described as "one of the most extraordinary musicians around". Henry, who studied in Calcutta with India's premier slide guitarist Debashish Bhattacharya, is also a virtuoso on the harmonica and brilliant on beatbox harmonica whilst Brixham-born singer-songwriter Hannah, is a skilled fiddler, viola and banjo player with a real lightness of touch, a distinctive voice and a gift for tapping traditional music veins to create contemporary songs.

We're delighted to be welcoming Phillip and Hannah back to the Goose Is Out!

Philip G Martin aka Drohne : The Old Nun's Head,15 Nunhead Green, London SE15 3QQ
Friday 12 Sept, Doors 7.45pm. £7. Floorspots welcome.


Philip G Martin (aka Drohne) draws on influences rooted in a bygone age, and uses instruments normally associated with European traditional music. However the music he makes is essentially contemporary English.
...
Each time Phil has come to the Goose, he has had a very appreciative audience, with an interesting mix of instruments and an equally interesting mix of material (Drohne, not the audience! All Tomorrow’s Parties played on the Hurdy-Gurdy, anyone?)

We had been wanting to give Phil a headlining night of his own for some time, and now finally we have succeeded! We are sure that this will be a fantastic evening!

Link to Drohne website, plus info about our events at The Old Nuns' Head here:

Our October gigs

:) 

You Are Wolf, Friday 10 Oct, The Old Nun's Head, 15 Nunhead Green SE15 3QQ. 7.45pm, £7.

 Floorspots welcome.

 If you saw You Are Wolf (aka Kerry Andrew) at The Crown & Greyhound supporting Alasdair Roberts last year, you will be back! If you didn’t, come and see what you have been missing. We absolutely promise you won’t be disappointed – she is absolutely brilliant and unique, with a very special talent.

 'English avant-folk at its finest' - Observer

 'Imagine Bjork working her magic on the English folk tradition '- Uncut Magazine

 'an effortlessly charming and flamboyant frontwoman possessed of a truly beautiful voice, which also served as a seemingly bottomless repository of clicks, clacks and hums, layered and looped into a richly absorbing tapestries of sound... [she is] clearly dedicated to pushing British folk music forward into an uncertain future rather than insisting simply on its preservation' - Drowned in Sound


 New album "Hawk to the Hunting Gone" was chosen as one of Uncut's halftime albums of the year in June 2014.

Steve Tilston + Jess Morgan + Kate Denny: The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road Nunhead, London SE15 3QQ.

Friday 31 Oct. Doors open 7pm.

tickets http://www.wegottick...m/thegooseisout

Celebrating over 40 years as a professional musician! Ask anyone on the English acoustic scene who their favourite guitarist, singer, songwriter and entertainer is and nine times out of ten the same name will crop up in the top three of every department. Steve Tilston is one of our most celebrated song-smiths; widely recognised within the world of folk and contemporary music: the words, arrangements and subtle, quite superb guitar playing could be no one else.

 Born in Liverpool and raised in the Midlands, Steve made his recording debut in 1971 with the classic An Acoustic Confusion and has been turning out quality albums ever since. Life by Misadventure, And So It Goes, Solo Rubato and Such and Such all featuring first-class song-writing, quintessentially English in style and typically Tilston, marking him out as one of this country’s finest writers. The instrumental Swans at Coole is testament to his guitar virtuosity.

 Though known as a songwriter, Steve has always had an ear for the tradition and included new interpretations of old favourites on his original recordings. Of Many Hands is his first “all-traditional” album paying homage to his roots, with unique arrangements of timeless classics.

‘His work simply gets better as time goes on’ – Mojo

‘A great narrator on top form’ – The Observer

 Watch Steve here:


 Support tonight will be the excellent Kate Denny and Jess Morgan details here:

Jody Kruskal @ The Old Nun's Head, 15 Nunhead Green, 15 Nunhead Lane, SE15 3QQ. 7.45pm, £7 Friday 14 November.
 
Floorspots welcome
 
 
 
Jody Kruskal sings vintage American songs and play tunes on the Anglo concertina. He is from New York City, yet performs regularly in the UK.

His concerts offer a warm and engaging solo presentation of traditional and popular American songs from yesteryear. From witty and humorous ditties to songs that explore the depths of the human condition, his singing tells American stories that are hilarious, gritty and true… stories of train wrecks and wrecked marriages, death row convicts and lonesome lovers, heroes, swaggering braggarts, lazy slackers and slapstick fools. Plan to join in on the chorus.

His love affair with the concertina goes back thirty years.He often plays at local New York contra dances with a... number of bands. He has played extensively for morris and sword teams and also many Playford dances in NYC.


“What a refreshing sound!” – Sing out!

“Brilliant concertina player” – Vin Garbutt

“Technical fireworks… exceptional skills… very exciting playing… he’s able to make the anglo-concertina sound like a mouth organ… bending and blurring notes, so that his playing could never be mistaken for that of an English or even Irish player. ” – Rod Stradling, Musical Traditions

“Jody is an Anglo concertina virtuoso from the USA with a joyful, energetic & distinctive style; he’s a master of American contra dance, old-time and music-hall. He’s a fine singer. He writes stonkingly good tunes, too.” – Lewes Saturday Folk Club

Twelfth Day, The Old Nun's Head, 15 Nunhead Lane, SE15 3QQ. £7, Doors 7.45pm

Floorspots welcome

Twelfth Day are fiddle player Catriona Price and harpist Esther Swift. They both sing – often in unison, creating a new voice that is neither one nor the other. They both write – together, weaving traditional folk with classical elements to create a music that’s outside of genre. Lyrically they combine their own experiences, inspirations and dreams, informed by musical travels around the globe and their upbringings in Orkney and the Scottish Borders. They are inseparable.

Their newest album The Devil Makes Three brings together everything these women have heard and learned, over many years of playing and studying,...
to form a musical statement about who they are. The record surprised and thrilled broadsheet music critics and the folk press alike.

“21st century art music for trad fans.” – fRoots

“Refreshing, creative and original.” – Folk London
