If you weren’t at The Pilgrim you missed a great night! The Liverpool Irish Festival pre-kicked off in fantastic style (it doesn’t launch officially until next week…) with the first of three heats for the Battle of the Bands – and this year the competition’s gone acoustic!
The second heat is this coming Friday 10th October, followed the week after with Heat 3.
Then the winners from the three heats battle it out in the final on Friday 24th October, with the winner performing the following evening at the St Bride’s concert.

It starts at 8pm every week, and is £2 to get in. Er… and that’s 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.
