Another great Goose night at Hooper's Bar!

Brighton-based songwriter Naomi Bedford was first discovered by Orbital at a Brighton Party, and co-wrote and sang lead vocals on their 2001 chart smash "Funny Break."

Since then, she has focused on her original passion for country and folk-spiced material, playing around the UK both with her own band and in guest appearances with The Men They Couldn't Hang.

Her first album, "Dark They Were And Golden Eyed" was produced by Mick Glossop (Frank Zappa, Van Morrison, Sinead O'Connor etc.) The legendary Bonnie Prince Billy was delighted with her dark version of his song "Riding" which features on this album, and Del Amitri's Justin Currie called her "An English Emmylou or an American Sandy Denny". Confused? Us too. Let's just say she's got an amazing voice!
Naomi is planning her second album this year, which will be an album of murder and death songs, some original and some traditional (the Goose sees a bit of a theme emerging here, given half the Goose's passion for Nick Cave.) Anyway, moving swiftly on …..

Described by Maverick Magazine as "…achingly expressive … totally captivating …. Original and quite intriguing " you can hear some of Naomi's music at

Paul Simmonds has been with UK folk rock band The Men They Couldn't Hang for over 20 years. He also released an album last year, "The Rising Road", which infuses country ballads with darker and more English overtones.

After writing and singing on each other's records, Naomi and Paul have joined forces for this acoustic live project, bringing the best of each into a vibrant new endeavour …
So, following on the amazing evening at Hoopers in January with Wizz and Simeon Jones, we bring you another - erm - amazing evening. How do we do it? Modest? Not us!

Naomi and Paul will be doing two sets with an interval between, and the live music will start at 9pm with DJs before and after. Come early for a good spot.
