Live Lounge @ Baby Blue, down at the Albert Dock, kicks off its new season next month, and there’s plenty for acoustic lovers to (metaphorically, please) wet themselves with excitement over.
It all starts on 6th September with a visit from the Acoustic Strawbs. Not only have they had chart success themselves, they’ve also toured with the likes of Frank Zappa, King Crimson, The Eagles, and Santana. Support comes from local artist Rachael Dunn.
Some of the acoustic (and semi-acoustic) highlights of the coming season are
6th September – Acoustic Strawbs, with support from Rachael Dunn (Liverpool) 9th September – Ezio, with support from Roxanne de Bastion (Germany) 13th September – The Blow Monkeys, with support from Kate Rogers (Canada) 11th October – John Otway & Wild Willy Barrett 18th October – Three BONZOS and a piano, with support from Andy Roberts 28th October – Adrian Edmondson & The Bad Shepherds, with support from Ella Edmondson 8th November – Richard Digance 15th November – Erick Mongrain 16th November – Mark Butcher Band, with support from Rachael Dunn
Not bad! Not bad at all!
And the guys down at Baby Blue are looking for ideas – they want to know who you’d like to see playing the Live Lounge in 2010. Answers on a postcard, or a sealed-down envelope, and stuck to the Live Lounge @ Baby Blue facebook fan pagehere.
