If you want another acoustic event with a built-in feel-good factor then head on out to Hannah’s Bar on Leece Street this coming Tuesday 10th November.
Protect the Human Acoustic Night upstairs in Hannah’s Bar is a charity gig taking place for Amnesty International in tribute to Ken Saro Wiwa, who was a human rights activist (mainly against shell) in Nigeria and was executed for his beliefs. www.remembersarowiwa.com
The event is being organised by Jo Eckersley (co-chair, Liverpool Student Amnesty) and runs from 8pm to 2am, with DJs and acoustic music from Ed Crofts and Kalika.
A huge thank you to everyone who attended the First Friday fundraiser at the Mocha Lounge last night (Friday 7th). All the proceeds will go to Neurosupport, a national charity based here in Liverpool which provides advice, information and support to people with a neurological condition, their families and care professionals, and aims to raise the awareness of neurological conditions in the community at large. Once all the pennies and pounds have been counted we’ll let you know how much was raised on the night.
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.
