The Mag , 211 Lordship Lane . SE22 8HA . £6/£5 (floorspots ,and those without income from a job )
Jen and Joe moved to Dulwich from Fremantle in Western Australia a few months back - and how lucky for us, as you will know if you have seen them Upstairs at the Mag! Or as support for Jim Causley at DHFC back in February this year .
Joe was born in Aylesbury and Jen in Dublin, but they both emigrated with their families to Australia over 20 years ago. They have returned to Europe for 'an adventure'.
They have both toured and played in festivals in Australia with various groups ('Sham', 'Seisun', 'FGA', 'Bomshell Fountaine' - Joe and 'Tangled Reel', 'McCool', 'Sila' - Jen.)
Jen plays traditional fiddle and met Nigel Kennedy once, who signed her violin with a permanent marker pen (ruining it). Joe Fowler sings simple songs and learned a lot about music from flute player Brian Warren who said '..its like you're trying to break an egg with a sledge hammer', after a performance. Nice!
Tonight they will be playing traditional songs and tunes from England, Ireland and Australia. If you haven't seen them before, you're in for a treat!
Here are Joe & Jen at The Green Note earlier this year .
