The Goose is Out! is a monthly night bringing folk back to East Dulwich. This month sees BBC Folk Awards winner Martin Simpson, and equally enchanting support acts, place East Dulwich at the epicentre of London folk music.
Now.. Mr Simpson's greatness we are all most likely aware of.. but the support comes from equally as impressive (if less well known) names... be one of the first to tell everyone about these acts...
Olivia Chaney in the words of the Magpies Nest website " a gifted virtuoso, this young folk singer will conjure dark-eyed sailors, damsels in distress and rakish knights from an Indian harmonium and steel-string guitar". Expect to be charmed, moved and entertained by a performer and musician of unusual depth and passion.
With regards to Run......
The Forestbrook Gaelic Choir, Rún are five fantastic lassies (their words, not ours!) who perform four-part vocal arrangements of old Gaelic songs like 'An Cailín Rua' (the red-haired girl), 'Casadh an tSúgain' (twisting the hayrope) and 'Bo Na Leath Adhairce' (the one-horned cow.
Rún perform acapella and with Celtic harp. Current members include Lewis Barfoot, Alli Buhagiar, Sonja Byrne, Evrah and musical director, Brona McVittie, who many of you will know as one of the Woodlarks. Rún is the Gaelic word for 'secret, wish or love'.
I told you it wasn't to miss....
come along and spend friday night in fine folk style
