February is also the first anniversary of the Woody Guthrie Folk Club, and if you haven’t been down to this monthly event yet then you don’t know what you’re missing. January was sold out well in advance (as normal!) so get those tickets early from wegottickets.com
And the new festival we hinted at last month is the Latitude Festival, brought to you by Under the Influence. It’s taking place at Novas CUC over the weekend of 11th to 13th February, and you can get full details from thresholdfestival.co.uk So far they’ve got 200 acts, 160 bands, musicians and djs, 12 stages, and all in one venue! The cost is £5 for a day ticket, or £10 for the whole weekend – fantastic! Liverpool Acoustic will be hosting the Liverpool Acoustic Afternoon on Saturday 12th, and we’ll give you more details closer to the time.

Graham, on behalf of the Liverpool Acoustic Team
Liverpool Acoustic is the only website of its kind in the UK. It was created 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, interviews with local musicians, the Liverpool Acoustic Spotlight podcast, and a newsletter on the first of each month. This content is also available for free via email subscription. The diary lists acoustic events including festivals, theatre concerts, folk clubs, showcases and open mic nights.
