Welcome to The Goose Is Out!

If you don’t already know us, we run regular folk music concerts, club nights and singarounds, all  in Nunhead and Peckham, London SE15. We also support (but do not run ourselves) instrumental sessions  for beginners.

We are proud that both our concerts and singarounds are  now held  at The Ivy House, which is London’s first community-owned pub (the Goose has community shares!)

We also  run an outdoor  stage at the annual Dulwich Festival Fair in May, on Goose Green in East Dulwich, London SE22, which was where we first started out, and are involved in various other community events.

If you’d like to receive our newsletter and be amongst the first to hear the latest Goose news and bookings, just subscribe via the link on the right!

Please note that some venues, days  and times changed in  March 2016 – all should be updated on our website but please let us know if you spot anything wrong!

Saul Rose & James Delarre!! Friday 30 September at The Ivy House!!!





Saul Rose and James Delarre

The fantastic Saul Rose & James Delarre are headlining at our first Ivy House concert after the Summer break!

We are really looking forward to this – we have long admired both Saul and James, and both have been at the Goose before in other incarnations – Saul with Eliza Carthy and also with Faustus, and James with Mawkin:Causley, all back in the day when we were at DHFC.

Our two supports tonight are Ajay Srivastav, a really innovative singer and musician, and Rob Johnston, also excellent and very different from Ajay!

Mike Cooper is coming over from Italy specially for this concert, which is an addition to our regular schedule. An influential slide guitarist in  the sixties, Mike has since developed a unique eclectic style, ranging freely through improvisation, his own idiosyncratic original songs, electro-acoustic music, exotica, traditional country blues, folk, pop songs and extended guitar techniques and electronics.

You Are Wolf and Long Pike Hollow both also use experimental and improvisational voice and instrumental techniques, but in quite different ways. We expect this to be a very interesting and unusual evening!

New Arrangements for Ticket Reallocation for Sold Out Concerts




Where a concert has sold out, we used to put people with tickets they couldn’t use in touch with people who wanted them, on the night of the concert.

This became too much of a hassle for us on top of everything else we had to do, so we reluctantly stopped doing it.

We are delighted to tell you that the lovely Ivy House people have offered to run two waiting lists – one for people who have spare tickets for a concert, and one for people who want to buy tickets (ONLY after all tickets have been sold out).

If you have spare tickets, The Ivy House will give you a refund IF they have somebody who wishes to buy those tickets at their full face value.

We have cleared this arrangement with WeGotTickets, on the understanding that it will only be available for sold out concerts.

Where a concert has not sold out, if you have  tickets bought online which you cannot use you will still be able to reallocate them to somebody else via the WeGotTickets website.
