James Findlay & Alex Cumming ; The Goose Is Out! Friday 14 Feb, Upstairs At The Old Nun's Head, Door 7.45pm, live music starts 8pm floorsingers welcome, tickets £7 (on the door only).

The Old Nuns' Head 15 Nunhead Green, London SE15 3QQ.

The Goose first saw James Findlay when he was lurking at the side of a come-all-ye type session one afternoon in Towersey Village Hall a year or so back.

He was the last up to sing, and only sang one song, but we were blown away by his performance. It was one of those "How come you've escaped our radar for so long?" moments ......

Following on from winning the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Awards in 2010, James was signed by leading Folk Music label Fellside and released his album, 'Sport & Play' to a set of shining reviews.
English Dance & Song noted his 'great voice', and ability to 'handle a repertoire that would normally be associated with an experienced performer with no difficulty' and R2 magazine commented that 'Findlay is a singer of rare strength and conviction'. All this helped to establish James Findlay as one of the leading young Folk performers, and he secured a place in the MOJO Top Ten Folk Albums of 2012.

Since the release of that album he has been consolidating his position on the Folk club and festival circuit with his voice of 'steel and sensitivity' with a 'dramatic edge' that draws the crowd along and into his performance.

His new album 'Another Day Another Story' builds on the previous one with an excellent choice of mostly traditional songs which strongly link to his West Country roots. Again he keeps it simple to let the songs speak for themselves and it will go a long way to further enhance his growing reputation within the folk scene.
James will be joined tonight by Alex Cumming on accordion and bouzouki.

Saw and heard James at Herga last autumn, was very impressed by his ability to 'wing' one or two songs he hadn't completely tucked under his belt yet, so to speak; he just sang on with total conviction and carried us with him. The lad done good. No, seriously, he's well worth hearing, get there if you can!
