Liverpool Acoustic Spotlight 2011 Christmas Special

Posted by in news, news and reviews, spotlight


Welcome to the
Liverpool Acoustic Spotlight 2011 Christmas Special. We put out a call on our facebook page for any local acoustic musicians who have Christmas songs that we can play. We expected a couple – instead we got a sleigh full! Many thanks to everyone who submitted a song. Yes, we know they’re not all acoustic, and they’re not all from local artists, but they all fit into the Christmas theme in one way or another.

As we say on every show (read the blurb right at the bottom) now is as good a time as any to show your support for our local artists by sending them messages on facebook, ‘liking’ their page, going to their live gigs, and buy music direct from them where possible. If you like a song that you’ve heard on this show, let the artist know. It’ll make their day, and maybe even brighten up their Christmas!
