Liverpool Acoustic has been contacted about some opportunities for local acoustic musicians to get gigs outside the city.
Clear Blue Skies is the name of the acoustic duo which has created the Acoustic Magic event. Derek and Hairy(!) are looking for artists from across the UK and around the world to get involved.
Most of the gigs take place in Northumberland and the north east of England so anyone from Liverpool who wants to take part would have to be able to travel, but it may well be worth it for the experience and the extra exposure it would bring.
You can read a local (Northumberland) newpaper report about the event here.
This is an event run by Rob Dart and Foggy, the guys behind Mostly Toast Productions.
Most of the Mostly Acoustic events take place in the Nexus Art Cafe in Manchester city centre, although a number of extra shows happen in other venues around Greater Manchester.
Their MySpace profile has a full list of dates and event details, including which ones have slots available for people to play. So what are you waiting for? Manchester isn’t as far away as Northumberland, is it?
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.
