If you’ve been feeling a little upset about the regular events that have recently ended (or are currently on hold) then we’ve got just the thing for you. Over the next week or so we’ll be letting you know about some new events that have recently been added to the diary that you might want to consider trying out instead.
In 1964 Jacqui McDonald, with Bridie O’Donnell, formed the first full-time British female folk-song duo. Their names were soon shortened to ‘Jackie and Bridie’, and later to ‘Jacqui and Bridie’.
Jacqui is now a solo performer in her own right, with many CDs and books available.
You might be asking why we’re telling you all this. Well, Jacqui provides a monthly folk club in Liverpool, at Sefton Park Cricket Club
Jacqui’s Folk Club meets on the third Tuesday every month at Sefton Park Cricket Club. It starts at 8.30pm and entry is £2.50. There’s no club in August, and the Christmas Dinner takes place in December, which just happens to be this coming Tuesday 16th.
Jacqui mainly sings in the first half, plus input from others, while the second half has input from othersingers/musicians.
Club members are not keen to book artists, but very happy to listen to others. They are keen to encourage performers, from the “new” to the more experienced.
Liverpool Acoustic is the only website of its kind in the UK.

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.
