If your image of a folk festival is morris dancers, old hippies, tie-dye t-shirts, bearded men, and singers with one finger stuck in their ear then you obviously haven’t experienced the Black Swan Folk Festival before!
The Black Swan Folk Festival is an intimate gathering of kindred spirits in the beautiful village of Kirkby Stephen, Cumbria. An afternoon of live acoustic sounds and an evening of sun-kissed soul and reggae awaits the wandering friends of Liverpool music collectives Mellowtone and Soulful Vibes.
Liverpool Acoustic is the only website of its kind in the UK. It was founded by Graham Holland in April 2008 as a central resource for the vibrant and exciting acoustic music scene in Liverpool and the Greater Merseyside area. The website publishes news from the local acoustic music scene, previews of upcoming events, reviews of music releases and gigs, and the Liverpool Acoustic Spotlight podcast. This content is available for free via email subscription. The diary lists acoustic events including festivals, theatre concerts, folk clubs, showcases and open mic nights.
