The Ivy House



Time & Location

28 Jun 2024, 19:00

The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Rd, London SE15 3BE, UK

About the event

With support from Rob Anderson and Steve Hewitt

We are delighted to be welcoming Martin Simpson  back to the Goose!

Universally acclaimed as one of the finest ever acoustic and slide guitar players, and a fine banjo-picker to boot, Martin's solo shows bear witness to an artist at the very top of his game. Whether interpreting material from tradition or singing his own potent songs (such as "Never any Good", about his father), he  is a remarkable storyteller: captivating and profoundly moving.

Rob Anderson, who hails originally from Oregon USA, is a fine songwriter. Apart from his own songs, in recent years he has been committed to keeping the songs of his old songwriting partner Wayne Drury in circulation, in both The Wayne Drury project and most recently with Jackdaw.

Maverick Magazine says of Rob he has “…an authentic feeling of Willie Nelson or Waylon Jennings”. Jackdaw's recent album has been receiving rave reviews from everybody who has reviewed it.

Hailing from Kent, Steve Hewitt is an emerging singer songwriter with a strong Americana influence who is pushing the boundaries of folk-roots.

At The Ivy House, London’s first community-owned pub.

Tickets are £20 advance, £22 on the door (cash or BACS only)

Door 7pm. Live music starts 8pm and finishes 11pm.

This concert will be half seated, half standing, so come early if you want to be sure of a seat!

Please be aware that whilst our events are held in The Ivy House's  beautiful Grade 2 listed ballroom, this is a pub, so there may be some  background noise from adjoining bars, although we and the pub management  have done our best to minimise this.
