This month’s Liverpool Acoustic Live takes place on Friday 22nd July 2011 at the View Two Gallery on Mathew Street.
The music is provided by a very special line-up, each hand-picked from the basket of talent that is the local acoustic scene.

“A stunningly lush album, using an unusual instrumental core of cuatro, piano and ukulele (plucked pizzicato, rather than strummed), augmented by expansive and melodramatic string, brass and woodwind arrangements. All this is hung around actual songs which are uplifting and beautiful. Remember the first time you heard Elbow’s One Day Like This? It’s that good. Don’t let this one get away. If you only listen to one track, start with the title track “Collecting Skies”.
What Does It All “Mean”?: It’s life enhancing. It’s like a long hug from your very best friend after a hard day.
Goes well with…: Late evening with a bottle of red. Or in a comfortable bed with the speakers up loud and your eyes closed.
Might Suit People Who Like…: Elbow. Talk Talk. Arco. Bjork.” Word Magazine
