About the event
with support from BIRD RADIO and MATAIO AUSTIN DEAN
STICK IN THE WHEEL make a very welcome return to the Goose!
They create full-force reworkings of centuries-old work-songs and ancient texts, which speak to contemporary issues of class – an inherently political act. Their relentless approach to questioning traditional music forms is matched only by the energy with which they play it. Full of hope and resistance, they celebrate music from our collective histories – conjuring the past to point toward the future.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS WILL BE THE DUO VERSION OF STICK IN THE WHEEL!
BIRD RADIO is Mikey Kirkpatrick. It's quite hard to describe what he does, so here's what some other people have said:
"Bird Radio loops flutes, bones, a red kick drum suitcase and his own very un-ethereal vocals to create an intensely curious mash-up between electronic music and traditional folk tales" Critics' choice, Time Out
"....folk-horror of the darkest hue....his voice soaring like Scott Walker ... a musical storyteller of rare power" .... fRoots
MATAIO AUSTIN DEAN is an artist, poet, musician, and activist. He is a powerful singer and a founder member of Shovel Dance Collective, who at the time of writing this have just returned from a sold out tour.
