Fran McGillivray & Mike Burke + Sam Kelly Trio + Garry Smith.

Friday 27 Feb, The Ivy House 40 Stuart Road, Nunhead SE15 3BE. Doors 7pm.

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



Fran and Mike are acoustic folk-blues guitarists who play as a duo and also in the blues band So Long Angel. In February 2008 the Guardian said of them “Very impressive. McGillivray has an agreeably controlled and laid-back vocal style, often with an American twang, while Burke is an excellent blues guitarist.”

Colin Irwin of fRoots Magazine said of them “The material is beautifully, grippingly balanced – heartbreakingly poignant one minute, rousingly upbeat the next – and the acoustic settings give it all an illuminating freshness”

Sam Kelly is an excellent songwriter and interpreter of trad song that has assembled an excellent trio around him, recently has received much merited pluadits from Cara Dillon and Sean Lakeman among others.


Garry Smith is a much loved and admired slide guitarist who is a favourite around the London folk club scene, this will be a great evening.

Watch Fran & Mike here:

Pete Cooper & Richard Bolton : The Old Nun's Head,15 Nunhead Green, London SE15 3QQ. Friday 13 March, 7.45pm, £7.

Floorspots very welcome.


'Cooper and Bolton' are Pete Cooper (fiddle, mandolin and vocals) and Richard Bolton (cello and guitar). They've played numerous gigs at folk clubs and many festivals .Their musical influences are diverse, but they identify their music - both traditional tunes and songs, and their own highly original new pieces - as 'Contemporary English Roots'.

They find a potent source of musical inspiration, and historical focus, in the strange affinity between English fiddle music in its pre-Victorian heyday, which was surprisingly diverse in its sources and inspiration.

"...tremendous feel and focus" Chris Mills, Fiddle On

Reg Meuross + Jess Vincent + Rick Hayter: The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road, SE15 3BE.

Friday 27 March, Doors 7.pm.

Tickets http://www.wegottick.../thegoosseisout


Reg’s clever and imaginative lyrics have earned him the title of “Master Storyteller” (PennyBlack Music) and led Mike Harding to introduce him onto the stage of The Royal Albert Hall as “one of the finest singer-songwriters this country has produced”. Whether it’s a village hall or the Albert Hall, Reg brings to the stage a collection of extremely beautiful songs, performed with humour and depth, and sung with the voice of an angel. Reg has that rare gift of being able to touch people, through his songs and performance, on a really human level. His words and music paint pictures that remain with the listener long after the song has been sung.

Receiving 5 star reviews across the board for his previous album Leaves & Feathers has been hailed by many to be Reg’s most accomplished. Given the consistency of quality of all his albums up to now, this one is a hard act to follow, but his new album England Green & England Grey rises to the challenge.

This new work deals with topics such as dementia, with a deep and moving commentary on the subject Counting My Footsteps To You; it commemorates the centenary of WW1, with an unromanticised account of the story of Flora Sandes (the only woman to fight in that war); it tells the tale of the bandleader and his violin both lost in the Titanic disaster, The Band Played Sweet Marie; and it delivers an anthem for our times: England Green and England Grey.

The maturity of Reg’s writing, and the courage with which he deals with some difficult topics, is revealed here. Reg is one of this country’s greatest songwriters at the very top of his game.

Next up the very Excellent Stick In The Wheel .... see below.


Stick In The Wheel, Friday 10 April, The Old Nun's Head, 15 Nunhead Lane, SE15 3QQ. 7.45pm / £7

Floorspots welcome.

We love Stick in the Wheel!

They supported Jim Causley at The Ivy House in 2014, and we immediately booked them to headline in their own right at a club night.

They are one of the most original bands on the scene at the moment, in our opinion. Hailing from London , they sing songs from and about London in, well, a very London fashion.

They say of themselves," we play the music of our people. We sing in our own accents. We record in our kitchens and living rooms. This is our culture, our tradition."

"There is a pleasingly raw, simple and authentic sound to their music" Bright Young Folk

"The hottest new folk band for ages Ian Anderson," fRoots magazine

"A real discovery Tom Robinson," BBC6Music

"Very entertaining" Joe Boyd

"Cracking stuff" Sam Lee

Jim Moray + Fifteen Days + Elliot Morris: The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road, Nunhead, SE15 3BE.
Friday 24 April, Doors 7pm.

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


Jim Moray last appeared at the Goose two years ago when we were temporarily at The Dog (aka The Crown and Greyhound) in Dulwich Village, and we enjoyed the evening so much that we have asked him back, this time to the larger and nicer venue of The Ivy House!

Jim has won many awards for his excellent albums and has continuously pushed boundaries since his emergence on the scene with " Sweet England" just over ten years ago. There is a sense of anticipation around each new release as to what he will do next. An artist constantly changing and evolving.

Joining Jim tonight are two support artists new to the Goose but we think you will like them – Elliott Morris and Fifteen Days, both singer songwriters, both highly original yet contrasting in style.

"Jim Moray is one of the most consistently inventive musicians working in English traditional music today." CAST

Jack Harris: The Goose Is Out! The Old Nun's Head, 15 Nunhead Green SE15 3QQ, Friday 8 May.
7.45/ £7. Floorspots welcome.


The Goose has (have?) admired Jack Harris for a long time as a fantastic singer and songwriter, and we thought it was about time we gave him a headlining gig!

Jack was the first international (ie non-American) artist to win the New Folk songwriting competition at the Kerrville Folk Festival, Texas. Previous winners include Steve Earle, Lyle Lovett, Gillian Welch and Devon Sproule.

Jack has gigged frequently in the UK, USA and Europe, both as a support act and headline performer. He has made several appearances at The Green Man Festival, and opened for some of folk music’s biggest names, including Dick Gaughan, Martin Carthy and Dave Swarbrick, as well as contemporary songwriters like Anais Mitchell and Jeffrey Foucault.

Jack’s live show is a riveting mix of song-craft and story-telling, adorned by intricate fingerstyle guitar and smoky, soulful vocals. Drawing from the narrative traditions of folk and blues music, Jack brings both into the here and now; a “born poet”, whose songs are steeped in myth and mystery.


“Jack Harris is a priest of song who holds himself to a rigorous, ancient code of beauty most of us have forgotten exists.”— Anaïs Mitchell

Dick Gaughan gig at The Ivy House on 29 May has SOLD OUT. Sorry if you didn't get a ticket .... come along and see the excellent Nick Dow at The Old Nun's Head on Friday 12 June.

Doors 7.45PM/ £7, Floorspots always very welcome . The Old Nun's Head, 15 Nunhead Green. SE15 3QQ.

Nick Dow has been singing traditional Folk Songs for over Forty years. He has had a big influence on the Folk scene and most recently award winning English Folk Musician Jim Moray has quoted Nick as an influence singing two songs from his repertoire and including one {Seven Long Years} on his latest album ‘Skulk’

Nick is an acknowledged expert on West Country Folk Songs and together with his wife Mally ,has collected over 300 songs in Dorset, and also found singers in Lancashire and Essex

He has also made recordings of Gypsy Singers some of which have been included on Topic Records series ’The Voice of the People’

Nick Dow has returned to the Folk Scene after a long absence. He spent several years building up his business of Signwriting and building and restoring Gypsy Wagons.

Nick has lived an amazing life. From a rough childhood in South London, he has lived on his wits since he left home at eighteen; travelling half way round the world, living on the road with the Travelling Folk and learning their songs, working as a TV and Film Extra, broadcaster, Narrowboat painter, writer, Folklorist, Guitar Teacher and General Dealer.

Every song Nick sings has a story attached to it, and his gigs are as informative as they are entertaining.

Nick and Mally now live happily in East Lancashire surrounded by Moorland and Fells.

Dave Swarbrick + Jake Wilson + Alison Frosdick & Jack Burnaby : The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road SE15 3BE, Friday 26 June.

Doors open 7PM

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


Dave Swarbrick will obviously need little or no introduction to regulars of this forum, however, a little background info ... Dave headlined our very first Goose concert, way back in March 2008, and he’s been back a few times since both solo and with Martin Carthy.

Dave joined the IAN CAMPBELL FOLK GROUP for several years in the early 60's and in 1966 he teamed up with MARTIN CARTHY. This remarkable pairing played an important part in the tremendous shake up given to British folk music in the middle to late 60's. When they parted in 1969 ( they would renew their partnership in years to come, of course) Dave joined FAIRPORT CONVENTION and his contribution to folk and folk/rock music is legendary and well documented.


Tonight at Swarb’s request we also have local songwriter and guitarist Jake Wilson. The two met when Jake supported him at the Goose before. They quickly struck up a friendship and Swarb went on to produce Jakes' album " All's Well", a series of songs based on Scotts expedition to the Antarctic.

Dave is arguably the finest fiddler there is and is highly regarded the world over.

"His fiddle flits and swoops like a swallow in full flight ...both his sense of humour and cavalier instinct are intact." fRoots

Also supporting are Alison Frosdick & Jack Burnaby, who many of you will know from their Goose floorspots and regular appearances at other clubs.

Here's Swarb and Jake Wilson together Smiley
