Creeping Jane

Creeping Jane are Nygel Packett and Sue Whitehead, who  started the Goose in  2008 and have been running it ever since.

The Scarecrow in the background has nothing to do with Creeping Jane, who are named after a song about a horse. The scarecrow used to be called Dave, then he  became Little Frank, then when Little Frank’s head disintegrated, he became Dave again. Then he disintegrated altogether, and now is no more ….

If you have ever wondered where Nygel’s clothes  go when they finally fall apart, that was  where …..

Nyge and Sue have gradually progressed from singing rather quietly at Goose  Singarounds to singing rather loudly on a stage.

They  apologise to audiences at open mics elsewhere who had never heard unaccompanied folk songs before (but were remarkably tolerant and even in some cases interested  😀 )

They  are learning Creeping Jane (the song). Well,  they  had to really, didn’t they 😀

They  don’t have any YouTube clips as yet, but they  are working on getting one of Sue’s granddaughters to record some 😀  Anyway, they don’t want to scare you away ……

Apart from singing at our Sunday  Singarounds and Thursday Club Nights (sadly no more – R.I.P. club nights) Creeping Jane  have sung a few songs at Friday concerts with The Copper Family and Leon Rosselson, and will be doing full 25 minute supports  (AAAARRRRGGGGHHHH ) for Martin Simpson in November 2021, and The Copper Family in May 2022.

Be very afraid ……  😀
