Lotzie Weaver has dropped us an email at Liverpool Acoustic HQ with two nuggets of news that he’d like to share. Such a generous soul!
Lotzie is a local singer-songwriter who writes songs that are topical, comical, protesting, loving, and politically incorrect! And in a week when next season’s fixtures were announced, and England gained two triumphant draws in the groups stages of the World Cup, what could be more topical than a song about bankers? A song about football, that’s what!
You can listen to The Footie Song by visiting Lotzie’s myspace profile at myspace.com/lotzieweaver and for those of you who are reading this on the website (sorry, email subscribers) we’ve embedded it below where it will remain active for the duration of the World Cup. Oh, and his main website is at www.lotzieweaver.co.uk
The Footie Song, by Lotzie Weaver
The second news nugget is that Lotzie was interviewed on BBC Radio Merseyside’s Folkscene programme last Thursday by presenter Geoff Speed. Don’t worry if you missed it because it is being broadcast again on Tuesday 22nd June at 9.00pm on 95.8 FM, 1485 MW, DAB, and online at bbc.co.uk/liverpool and you can listen to it again online anytime until Thursday 24th June.
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.
