Love Nyge and Sue aka The Goose Is Out!  xxx

Three excellent joint headliners tonight, and each one with his own  unique style!  (Ooops just realised they are all men – sorry women, we will make amends!)


Elliott Morris


Elliott Morris, featured in Acoustic magazine as ‘The Next Big Thing’, taps the strings and beats the guitar’s body to create an intricate spectacle, together with an original and unique sound integral to his songs.

Elliott’s original compositions marry intricate guitar lines with heartfelt, honest vocals and clever wordplay, combining elements of folk, roots, jazz and country, all the time embracing the traditional and the contemporary.

Stew Simpson

We had a great night at the Goose with Stew’s band Hadrian’s Union, and we are delighted to welcome him back solo tonight, as the first time we encountered Stew he was singing a cracking unaccompanied traditional song at an evening  Singaround at Cecil Sharp House, if memory serves at the London Folk Festival!

Stew Simpson has spent the last 20 years exploring many styles in the music world, eventually settling in the folk world.

Last year, Stew  released his most recent work: Milk Man Son. This work is a reflection of Stew’s journey into Folk Music. Having started his music career in punk and grunge Stew found a place to communicate with his audience somewhere in the middle of traditional music, eccentric stage craft, and a touch of punk attitude that just wouldn’t shift.

As well as performing with his band Hadrian’s Union, who  EFDSS Magazine called “Folk Rock at its finest”, Stew is a wonderful solo singer, singing both his own songs and traditional acapella folk from the North East of England.

Stew is also a very talented artist, and you can buy his paintings or commission drawings from his website, where you can also buy CDs and (very lovely) tee shirts! He is also currently working on a children’s book (Jemimah and the Black Unicorn).

Here are two of  Stew’s  drawings:
