Alasdair Roberts
Alasdair has twice come down from Glasgow specially to appear at The Goose Is Out! Last time DHFC was packed, and it was a very special evening. Alasdair said it was a special night too.
He is one of those singers who just could not possibly be mistaken for anybody else, having his own very individual style.
Based in Glasgow, he released his first solo album of traditional songs,under his own name "The Crook of my Arm", in 2001. His second album "Farewell Sorrow" was one of the Observer's top albums of the year , and consists of beautiful self-written songs which are totally personal yet clearly influenced by the folk tradition.
Alasdair's next album, "No Earthly Man", was a collection of traditional British ballads. His sixth album, "Too Long in This Condition" was released in August 2010, his most accessible to date.

"One of Britain's most singular and original talents" fROOTS
" Roberts effortlessly imbues ancient folk song with renewed relevance" **** MOJO
"Robert's macabre ceilidh carries an irresistible allure" **** THE TIMES
"All strangeness, betrayal and bloody hands, it's powerful, magical stuff" **** Q

Lizzie Nunnery

With the release of her debut album Company of Ghosts in Spring 2010, Lizzie's reputation as a captivating new voice in British folk has continued to grow.
BBC Radio 2's Mike Harding named the album in his top ten releases of the year, and it was nominated for Best Debut in the 2010 Spiral Earth awards.
"I was stunned by this album the first time I heard it and have gone back to it over and again. There's something riding under all the songs that, as in all great music, makes for more than the sum of its parts. " Mike Harding, BBC Radio 2 on "Company of Ghosts"
"An outstanding debut." Steve Bennett, Acoustic Magazine on "Company of Ghosts."

Paul Micklethwaite

Paul has been playing guitar since I was really quite little and started singing as well fairly recently, after I found out you can sing folk in a Yorkshire accent (lol)

.. A Yorkshireman who plays acoustic guitar and singing, often at the same time.

"lachrymose" ~ Neil Lockwood
