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