Aquarius Music Festival

Last Saturday's Aquarius Festival was a revelation, partly because despite living nearby I had no idea that there was a golf club and course on the Honor Oak reservoir site in Marmora Road SE22.

But it was the quality of the music that made the event, with a stage outside...
Josienne Clarke and Ben Walker on the main stage, singing songs of their own
and others by Sandy Denny and June Tabor.

...and a crowded indoor space hosted by East Dulwich folk club The Goose is Out.

Multi-instrumentalist Robin Gillan performs The Bonnie Bunch of Roses, singing through his banjo for some added reverb!

Middle Class Sound System in the area
No Frills Band - sorry for poor photo - it was dark in there!

The Goose is Out have plenty more coming up, including their regular free singaround session tomorrow night (Sunday 9th) at The Mag, 211 Lordship Lane, SE22. Forthcoming gigs include The Askew Sisters on Friday 14 September and the legendary Dick Gaughan on Friday 28 September. Full details at their website.
