It is always a pleasure to welcome Ewan McLennan to the Goose. We first came across him back in the day when a demo CD was thrust into our hand at the end of a concert (we won't embarrass him by saying who thrust it – oh, OK, we will – it was his mum ) We hadn't met Ewan at that point.
As soon as we heard it, we booked him to support Faustus – we were still holding our concerts at DHFC at that point. After that, Ewan headlined at a couple of our club nights, and then at concerts, including our refugee benefit concert in January 2016, where he was joint headliner with Thomas McCarthy
Most recently, Ewan has been working with the writer George Monbiot on a project "Breaking the Spell of Loneliness", which has been featured on television as well as at live gigs around the country. Tonight Ewan is appearing solo, and we are really looking forward to it.
The Foxglove Trio is a group of multi-instrumentalists who perform mostly traditional songs from around the British Isles in English and Welsh. Gathering material from sessions, published song collections and contemporary artists, these talented musicians are making a name for themselves on the UK folk scene for their beautiful harmonies, creative new arrangements and engaging live performances.
Many of you will know Ian Kennedy and Sarah,Lloyd who have been going from strength to strength since starting to come to our singarounds way back when we first began.
They are a real part of the Goose family (well they aren't related to Nyge and Sue, obviously, at least not as far as we know ) and we are delighted that they are able to replace Aimee and Emmie who are no longer able to sing tonight.
