Elle Osborne . The Magnolia 211 Lordship Lane . London SE22 8HA

FRIDAY April 16th . 8.pm . £6/5(floorspots)

Elle was born on the North Sea coast of Lincolnshire where she taught herself to sing and play the fiddle (and ride Gypsy horses on the beach, although that's another story). She was raised amongst folk singers and wrote songs from an early age.

Barry Dransfield started her fiddle-singing (when she only asked him to glue her fiddle back together). She toured the world solo for five years, including North America, NZ and five tours of Australia in four years. Elle's debut CD, Testimony, featured in the fRoots Best of Year Critics' Poll, and was reviewed by Colin Irwin "…One of the most compelling performances of the year".

Inspired by the language and beauty of English folksong, Elle performs her own as well as re-interpretations of traditional songs (many of which she nicked from her Dad.)
Elle featured on the Lal Waterson tribute album Migrating Bird, with her experimental folk noise duo Lindsey Woolsey ("Willful dissonance!" The Times). She also composes for dance, and makes sound installations - most recently LongLines for the National Fishing Heritage Museum.

Elle has played with John Spiers and Jon Boden, James Yorkston, and most recently, Alasdair Roberts - including at our Goose evening last year!
.
"Rare and compelling ... passionate and engaging" Time Out

"...Sings as if her very life depends on it... captivatingly fearless" fRoots magazine, interview excerpt, April 2000

"Some singers just have a way with a song, and Osborne is one of them ... She's going to be a name to be reckoned with in the future" globalvillageidiot.net

"Delightfully embodies our motto: from the fiercely traditional to the frankly eccentric" Islington Folk Club, London

All the very best to Elle!

Memories of Cleethorpes ff started by her grandparents on the pier! and latterly in the front bar of the Winter gardens, singing trad ballads and fiddling!

Her dad Glen is a fine chap who helps me with the Fred Jordan comp at Saltburn over many years

All the best and regards to Lorna

Ray
