The big news from Liverpool Acoustic is the launch of our new night, Liverpool Acoustic eXtra. We’re really excited about giving even more local artists the chance to play at a fantastic acoustic venue in front of an appreciative audience. See below for more information, and keep your eyes open on the News and Reviews page for the special feature very soon.
Doors open at 8.00pm with music starting at 8.30pm sharp. The night finishes at 11.15pm.
…and I say hello
We’ve had a really positive response to the new NEWS BLAST feature on the News and Reviews page, with a number of musicians already getting performance opportunities in response to some of the items we’ve mentioned. If there are any short news snippets or shout outs that don’t warrant a whole news item but are worthy of note then drop us a line and we’ll add them to the next BLAST. And look out for a major gig offer in the next one!
Thanks to Nicholas and Roger who answered our call for people to help out on the door at Liverpool Acoustic Live and eXtra events. We really appreciate the offer, and are glad to have you on board the Good Ship Liverpool Acoustic!
Meanwhile, over on facebook we’re in the process of moving Liverpool Acoustic from a ‘Group’ to a ‘Page‘. If you haven’t made the switch yet just click here facebook.com/liverpoolacoustic or on the link below then click ‘Like’ when you get there. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy (just in time for the pancakes on Shrove Tuesday 8th March)!
Finally, we were saddened to hear of the death of local author and former Radio Merseyside presenter Brian Jacques last month. Famous for the Redwall series of books, Brian was also well known on the local folk scene. He will be missed by those who knew him personally and those around the world who knew him through his books. There will be a memorial service at the Anglican Cathedral on Friday 4th March at 11.00am and everyone is welcome. (Thanks to John Owen from Folk North West, and Eddie Morris from Parkgate Folk Club for the information.)
