    Thomas McCarthy has been absolutely brilliant every time we have seen him sing, including every time he has been to the Goose, so we don’t expect this concert to be any different!

    Thomas is a singer from an Irish Traveller family in Birr, County Offaly. From a considerable dynasty of traditional singers, song-makers and musicians, Thomas grew up surrounded by the singing of his late mother, her father and aunts and uncles and now lives in London.

    Having spent his life learning the songs of his family, in 2008 Thomas sang publicly for the first time at the folk club at London’s Cecil Sharp House. By the following year, he had sung at the most prominent folk festivals and clubs in Ireland and England, appeared on BBC Radio, and has since shared a stage with many well known performers including Lou Killen and The Copper Family and has won the praises of many other respected musicians besides.

    Support tonight will be from a variety of local traditional singers. Regulars of both our Club nights and Singarounds.

    ‘The greatest Irish traditional singer in fifty years’ – Joe Power, Conneries’ Singing Club, Waterford

    This will be a great night, Don’t miss this!
