The Eclectic Collective is a brand new monthly concept where three fantastic artists play two sets of three songs each, giving us a great variety of top notch music. The idea is the brainchild of local musician and event host Kaya, who adds Eclectic Collective to her other events, namely the monthly Acoustica at 3345 Parr Street, and Under The Influence at Studio Two, Parr Street (more about that below).
The event is completely free, and takes place in the lovely Leaf Tea Shop & Bar in the NOVAS CUC building (the same entrance as Elevator studios).
The launch night is taking place on Wednesday 16th September, starting at 8.00pm, and will feature sets from Thomas-Joseph & Murphy, Stuart Anthony, and Rosie Jones. Kaya hosts, and will probably give a few songs too.
Sticking with Kaya, the next Under The Influence is Vol 11, and is taking place on Saturday 19th September in Studio 2 at Parr Street, starting at 8.00pm.
And it’s a Nordic theme this month with “Northern Lights” – celebrating Kaya’s ten years in Liverpool. We’re promised Norwegian Waffles and other Nordic treats, along with creative covers and Nordic-inspired original songs from a selection of talented singers, songwriters, and musicians.
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.
