Eliza Carthy & Dave Delarre + Clarke Camilleri + Brown Boots: The Goose Is Out! The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road, SE15 3BE. Doors open 7pm. Tickets [www.wegottickets.com]
Eliza Carthy surely needs no introduction! Arguably, the most impressive and engaging performer of a generation. She has previously headlined at the Goose with Saul Rose and with dad Martin. Eliza is also the winner of an unrivaled seven BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. In 2003 she became the first traditional English musician to be nominated a BBC Radio 3 Award for World Music (for Anglicana).
She has revitalised and made folk music relevant to new audiences and has captured the most hardened of dissenters with intelligent, charismatic and boundary-crossing performances.
Dave Delarre, a fine player of stringed instruments and part of Eliza’s Wayward Band, he has also headlined at the Goose back in the day as part of Mawkin:Causley.
Clarke Camilleri is a troubadour, songwriter and poet who is one of a new generation of folk who want to bring on the new with an appreciation of the old. Clarke sings with the past but writes for the present. He is also probably one of the youngest people in the country running a folk club!
Brown Boots! is Will Allen on melodeon and Martin Clarke on fiddle. Their musical background is rooted in playing music for dancing, as well as gaining inspiration from playing with their many talented musical friends at festivals and pub sessions across the country.
