This month’s Liverpool Acoustic Live takes place on Friday 24th September at the View Two Gallery on Mathew Street and features three fantastic acts in our first ever blues night.
Peter Price is a blues sensation in demand to play festivals the world over, and his sell-out shows at the International Guitar Festival of Great Britain have become an annual fixture of the festival’s program. Inspired by the likes of blues greats such as Big Bill Broonzy, Blind Willie McTell, and Robert Johnson, Pete’s amazing guitar-work and inspired blues vocals take the listener on a journey through the blues and beyond. A rare appearance in Liverpool, this chance to see Peter Price play at the View Two Gallery is one not to be missed.
Blue C play their own style of blues straight from the Mersey Delta. Raphael Callaghan on slide guitar and Christine Purnell on bass have already made an impression, winning the Great British Blues Festival’s first Blues Song of the Year, and playing with the likes of Bonnie Rait and Eric Bibb.
The Orchestra comes from Sweden and is an exciting mix of genres and emotions. Be prepared for plenty of low-down, full-on, dirty blues!
There are 50 tickets available online for £5 in advance from wegottickets.com – tickets are £6 on the door.
Doors open at 8.00pm with music starting at 8.30pm sharp. The night finishes at 11.15pm
Peter Price has delighted audiences throughout the world with his rich singing voice and virtouso guitar skills. A regular on the festival scene, Peter’s ‘Blues and Beyond ‘concerts take the listener on strange and haunting journeys – from brilliant fingerstyle renditions of pre-war blues classics to dance tunes from Latin America, Celtic pipe and harp music, to Indian ragas and back to the blues.
Peter’s schedule this year has taken him on tours to Ireland, the Western Isles and Highlands of Scotland and will also take him to Florence and Frederickstad later this year with further concerts planned for Manhattan and Canada in 2011.
Blue C had one of their busiest years in 2009 when they ran and hosted two successful acoustic blues clubs, Blues On The Rock at Fort Perch Rock in New Brighton and the Acoustic Blues Lounge at the View Two Gallery in Liverpool. But in 2010 they took the decision to temporarily halt those endeavours and concentrate on their own music.
The duo – Raphael Callaghan, vocals, slide guitar, harmonica, and Christine Purnell, bass guitar, vocals – have been busy playing their favourite gigs, like Nantwich Jazz Blues And Music Festival, and writing the final songs to appear on their long-awaited follow-up CD to their acclaimed album Swimming Against The Tide. Eric Clapton, B B King and Bonnie Raitt have copies of that one!
They look forward to the acoustic blues special at the View Two Gallery on September 24th where they will present a sneak preview of some of their new material.
The Orchestra hail from Sweden. Normally a trio, but sometimes transforming into a combo of five, the Orchestra have their mind set on providing music that moves mind and body.
The Orchestra is Henric Andersson – Lead vocals, rhythm guitar and mandolin, Anders Härdevik – Harmoninca and button accordion and the maestro himself, Denis Tajic – Piano, Keyboards, Accordion and….bass!
The three individuals comes from a variety of musical experience and combines these experiences to the sound of Orchestra!Andersson has spent the last years singing soulful tunes that brings you back to the days of Percy Sledge and James Brown. Tajic and Härdevik has worked together for lots of years. The last few years they were touring Scandinavia and Europe performing with a mix of country, Americana and Swedish flavoured pop.
The trio are currently working on their first studio album. Up to now the trio has paved the path and hopefully found their joint musical venture. Genrewise the Orchestra is located in rootsy, soulful music with a touch of country and blues.Joining the Orchestra to the gig in Liverpool are friends Pontus Andersson – Lead guitar and Magnus Nilsson – Drums. When Pontus Andersson and Magnus Nilsson are playing with the Orchestra in Sweden, they play under the name Hardy T Anderson band.
The setlist for Liverpool will host a mix of blues and flavoured soulful Orchestra music.
