messageThe Goose Is Out! : Leon Rosselson, Joe Wilkes, Local Singers, The Ivy House Friday 31 Jan.

Leon Rosselson, Joe Wilkes, Local Singers, The Ivy House 40 Stuart Road SE15 3BE. Friday 31 January, Doors open 7pm.
Tickets [www.wegottickets.com]

Leon has been performing for over fifty years! His powerful and topical songs have been sung and recorded by many artists, including Martin Carthy and Dick Gaughan.

In the early days of the folk revival, he was a member of the Galliards with whom he made numerous radio and TV broadcasts and concert appearances. He started writing songs seriously (and humorously) in the early 1960s and hasn't stopped yet. His early songs were topical-satirical (some of them were featured on TV's satire show That Was The Week That Was) but he broadened out from there, absorbing different influences, from Music Hall to French Realist Song, and experimenting with different song forms.

Joe Wilkes was long associated with The Spitz venue in East London, where he played with Bert Jansch (R.I.P.), Beth Orton and Davy Graham (R.I.P.) amongst others.

His debut album, Spotlight, was released in 2006, and has been described as “a subtle and pastoral acoustic testament at the vanguard of the re-emerging British folk scene” – a far cry from his times at the Twelve Bar Club, when he and his anarcho acoustic band would “cause a mess, with anyone and everyone joining in.” !

Joe has toured Europe and the UK, and filmed a TV concert.
