Friday 20 November 2009 - DHFC Edgar Kail Way SE22 . Doors Open 7pm.

We had such a memorable evening with Dick at DHFC in 2008, we just had to ask him back. If you were there, you will know why! Two absolutely top support artists tonight, too.

Dick has been at the cutting edge of Scottish music for almost four decades. He was an early member of Boys of the Lough (he is on their first album) before joining the now-legendary Scottish folk-rock band Five Hand Reel, making three albums with them in the mid-to-late seventies.

A stunning and passionate singer with a wonderfully expressive voice allied to a dazzling guitar technique, Dick has been described as "truly masterful" (Folk Roots) and "How music from the gut really sounds" (The Guardian). If you want to know what we mean, just seek out "Handful of Earth" and "The World Turned Upside Down" - nuff said, we think.

Dick just doesn't do "ordinary" gigs, and we're sure that this evening will - again - be no exception. We are delighted to have him come back to the Goose. Maybe this could be an annual event!
