Mike Cooper + You Are Wolf + Long Pike Hollow : The Goose Is Out! The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road, London SE15 3BE. Doors open 7PM.

Tickets available here:

Initially a folk-blues guitarist he is as responsible as anyone else — and more so than many — for ushering in the acoustic blues boom in the U.K. in the mid '60s. He has, arguably, stretched the possibilities of that genre even more than his better known contemporaries Davy Graham, Bert Jansch, John Renbourn etc. by pursuing it into the more avant-garde musical areas occupied by guitar innovators such as Elliott Sharp, Keith Rowe, Fred Frith and Marc Ribot, with an eclectic mix of the many styles he has practiced over the years.

"Cooper, now in his seventies, is making the most adventurous music of his life… incredibly rich and evocative, and as a live performance, it's utterly flawless. Cooper takes live guitar processing and sampling as his raw material, using it to build something complex and substantive, full of ideas and surprises, not just abandoning it half-formed. – (Jonathan Dean – Brainwashed.)

Mike is coming over from his home in Italy specially to perform at the Goose, so please do come and see him!

You Are Wolf is Kerry Andrew, she explores English and American folk and original leftfield pop with gentle touches of electronica, weaves in spoken word and throws in an array of wild vocal techniques. She has been played on BBC 6Music by Tom Robinson, Gideon Coe and Stuart Maconie, Radio 3's Late Junction and New York's premier indie radio station WFUV.

Long Pike Hollow is the alter ego of Piers Haslam, who has also appeared at the Goose many times.
In this incarnation, free rein is allowed for excursions into more experimental musical terrain with 'American Primitive' guitar as a starting point.
