It’s the merry month of May, and with the festival season in full swing there’s certainly a lot to be merry about! Locally we’ve got Liverpool Sound City, the International Pop Overthrow, Crosby Music Festival, and the Hub Festival returning to Otterspool Prom – brill! Further afield there’s the Conniston-based Music With A View Festival run by the Family Folk-up crew. All of these festivals feature a number of acoustic artists, so there’s plenty to go around. This is all one in the eye to the disgruntled Crosby poet on a national poetry forum who said “Liverpool [is] the city that culture forgot.” Time for his medication, we’thinks!
We normally reserve this bit of the newsletter for the monthly highlights, but to be honest there are so many of them that it would probably be longer than the Diary Selection Box below, so instead we’ve highlighted the highlights (ahem) in the diary section so they’re easy for you to see. Just don’t forget to read the rest of the newsletter first!
One extra piece of news. We are proud to announce that Liverpool Acoustic Live is now a member of the North West Federation of Folk Clubs, and we’ll have copies of Folk North West magazine on sale at our future gigs. You can find the NWFFC online at folknorthwest.co.uk

Graham, on behalf of the Liverpool Acoustic Team
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.
