Last month saw the Liverpool Sound City, IPO, the Crosby Music, and the Hub Festivals. We’re not quite as busy this month, although we are starting off with the Wirral Folk on the Coast Festival (see the News and Reviews blog for more details) which is in addition to all of the regular weekly and monthly events that are filling the online diary. Of course, there’s always room for more, so if you find out about an event that’s not in the online calendar then drop us a line and tell us so we can fix the problem.
LIVERPOOL ACOUSTIC LIVE
Liverpool Acoustic Live has moved into its regular(ish!) fourth Friday of the month. For June and July we’re in the View Two Gallery on Mathew Street, but for August we’ve got something really special in a different venue – more about that closer to the time.
This month Liverpool Acoustic Live is on Friday 26th June and features the music of Vicky Neale, Barry Briercliffe, Emily Barden, and Blue C. Full details are in the poster on the main website at liverpoolacoustic.co.uk
If you want to hear what they sound like then you can listen to the Liverpool Acoustic Spotlight #15 which is due out soon.
