A very welcome return to the Goose by both Martin Carthy and John Kirkpatrick!

Both of them have headlined here many times, in various incarnations/combinations of bands, duos and trios, but this is the first time that they have headlined as a duo, so we are really looking forward to tonight!

Martin and John are leading interpreters of English folk traditions – folk guitarist/singer Carthy and squeezebox virtuoso/singer Kirkpatrick – are long-time collaborators in a variety of seminal musical projects: from John’s iconic 1976 Morris tunes album Plain Capers through Steeleye Span to Brass Monkey.

James Riley is a “fiendishly proficient” guitarist, singer, and a roadrunner to match, James chronicles the story of his experiences through clamorous, jubilant bluegrass ‘n’ soul and exquisitely spun yarns, sewn through ethereal, almost hymn-like ballads of love and life. His version of John Martyn's " Seven Black Roses" will live on in the Goose memory for many years.

Johns and Nowak are an English acoustic duo who like to have fun with American music; weaving together mandolin and guitar and singing songs of heartache and longing.

Their music is sometimes joyful, sometimes wistful; steeped in the American tradition and all that comes with it – from fiddle tunes to folk songs, from driving instrumentals and gentle ballads; some traditional, some self-penned.
