Some of you who were out and about on the local scene last December might have noticed a man pointing a video camera at people and asking them questions. That man was Eddy Bayes and the questions and video-pointing were for a documentary on the local acoustic music scene.
The documentary, called Reel Acoustic, is now finished and can be viewed by following the link below. If you’ve got a youtube account then why not leave a comment?
In addition to featuring Liverpool Acoustic with footage from our Christmas party in December, the documentary also covers the Everyman Folk Club based at the Fly in the Loaf on Hardman Street, Johnny Sand’s popular Out of the Bedroom event at Leaf on Bold Street, and Art, Love, Local at The Brink on Parr Street.
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.
