We’ve had some great performers at the Goose since we tentatively tapped our way out of our egg in March 2008, but we can’t believe we’ve actually had Brass Monkey! Twice now! And soon to be a third time …. just before they break up as a band 🙁
We’d go (almost) to the ends of the earth to see them, and half of the Goose once had The Doffing Mistress as the ringtone on her (clue) mobile. People did tend to look a bit startled on the bus…. she can’t work out how to do that on her current phone ….
Martin Carthy, John Kirkpatrick, Martin Brinsford, Roger Williams – and now with Paul Archibald on trumpet! What more do you need to know?
Here’s what Routes Music said: “Messrs Carthy and Kirkpatrick naturally lock into one another’s playing with an ease and precision that can only come of playing together for over thirty years. Sharing the vocals, and sometimes singing together in unison, they bring the fruits of years of experience to this band with an explosive freshness that is clearly driven by the excitement they all feel by playing together. It is a rare treat to see masters of their art combine with such open hearted enthusiasm to reach such tremendous heights. Feel the power!”
