Sarah Gillespie

Another great Goose night at Hooper's Bar!

"She's an incandescent new presence who matches her imposing delivery with superior lyrics." John Fordham, The Guardian ****

"A leftfield singersongwriter...wry lyrics and sinuous melodies" John Bunjey, Mojo ****

A sonic reflection of the contemporary London street, Greenwich-born singer-songwriter Sarah Gillespie delivers a melting-pot mix of urban-folk and middle-eastern blues. Expect emotive ballads & raucous gypsy swing incorporating pre-rock elements of blues & vaudeville - all with her trademark lyricism that knits everyday banter with raw poetry.

Sarah performs regularly on the London circuit @ diverse venues inc Ronnie Scots, the Borderline, the 606 Club, the Vortex, as well as Arts Centres, festivals and venues across England. Her dynamite band features internationally renowned Israeli-born jazz artist, Gilad Atzmon on accordion, clarinet and saxophone, Ben Bastin on double bass and Asaf Sirkis on drums. Tonight she performs solo, every bit as powerful as when backed by her band.

Check her out at

Sarah will be doing two sets with an interval between, and the live music will start at 9pm with DJs before and after. Come early for a good spot, and don't forget Hooper's do a great range of ales, plus food, so you can eat and drink well whilst listening to some brilliant music!.

This event is FREE!
