We’ve got four great acts for you to enjoy on the night.
Jeff Jepson is a singer-songwriter-musician originally from the Isle of Mann who impresses with his distinctive voice everywhere he plays. Although he’ll be playing solo acoustic at the Liverpool Acoustic Live gig, he’s also to be seen about town with the Jeff Jepson Band, and making music with the Neil Campbell Collective and with Alex Dunford.
Neil Campbell is a virtuoso classical guitarist whose musical career has followed a number of seemingly divergent musical paths including free improviser, singer songwriter, systems music composer, band leader and virtuoso guitar soloist. His works, whatever he turns his hand to, continue to receive popular critical acclaim.
Tricia McTeague is a singer and songwriter from Widnes. She’s had the pleasure of working with some amazing and talented people in the past as Backing Vocalist (Ronan Keating), Session Singer and Writing Collaborator. Here’s your chance to enjoy Tricia in the wonderful surroundings of the View Two Gallery.
Letters in Red are Rachel Sparx (vocals), Will Binden (guitar, mandolin & piano), Camilla Wilson (violin) & Christopher Wood (guitar & percussion). Based in Liverpool they write, perform and record their own music. Mixing a wide variety of influences such as pop, indie, folk, classical, soul and electronica, Letters in Red’s songs reflect on love, loss and life. Winners of the 2008 Liverpool Irish Festival’s Battle of the Bands, Letters in Red are ones to watch.
