There's A Goose Loose About This Hoose

On my return from Scotland, I wandered over to Dulwich to another local folk Club The Goose Is Out!.

This one was a lot more traditional and more organised than Kit and Cutter (who's organisers where there) in Deptford, but didn't quite have the same character as a result. As a result the average age of the people there was a bit higher too.

They opened with some of the floorspots (the rest opening the second half). There was a lot of talent here, and in some ways it was probably worth going just for the floorspots even if the main act hadn't been any good.

Keith Kendrick & Sylvia Needham, who were the main act, were also very good however. Keith's voice in particular was quite amazing. They also tried to get everyone involved more than just singing along with the choruses. At one point, I found myself being dragged up as a doctor (a very surprising thing to happen when your half asleep having just got the train down from Glasgow).

Unfortunately, they tend to be on the 2nd and 3rd Friday's of the month, which means they clash with Thrales and the Knees Ups, so I'm not entirely sure whether I'll make it to many of these over the coming months, but I'll certainly have to try.

If anyone's interested their upcoming dates are:

  • 19 March - Norma Waterson, Martin Carthy, Chris Parkinson

  • 16 April - Elle Osborne

  • 23 April - James Yorkston

  • 14 May - Sarah McQuaid

  • 21 May - John Kirkpatrick

  • 11 June - Chris Foster

  • 2 July - Eliza Carthy & Saul Rose



Like Kit & Cutter, they've also got a Facebook group to announce their events.

Along those lines, but this was more songs than tunes, and mainly English ones.

The main act did a lot of stuff from Derbyshire.
