Don’t forget the Liverpool Acoustic Songwriting Challenge 2012 launches on Saturday 8th September from 1pm to 4pm at the View Two Gallery on Mathew Street [map]. The challenge is for songwriters (individuals or partnerships) to visit the View Two and be so inspired by what they see that they can go away and write a song inspired by one particular piece. Songwriters have until 5pm on Sunday 7th October to write their song, record it, and submit their entry. Entry will be handled completely online on the Challenge website, and submissions will include a copy of the lyrics and a photo of the chosen work of art.
From 1pm to 4pm on the afternoon of Saturday 8th September we’ll also be running our Liverpool Acoustic Afternoon open mic event, so if you’re a musician come along and take part. There’s no obligation to take part in the Challenge if you don’t want to. We’ve got two booked acts playing for us too.
The bar will be open selling tea, coffee and anything stronger, and it’s an all age event so the kids are more than welcome. Entry is FREE.
