The Liverpool Acoustic Afternoon returns to Threshold Festival this weekend, and we’ve got a fantastic lineup for you.
There will be ten musical acts spread across the afternoon, each performing a 20-25 minute set. With bands, duos, and male and female solo acts there’s plenty of diversity and variety on show, with the artists representing a colourful cross-section of talent from the local music scene.
The lineup consists of Pentangle-influenced The Tenements, Irish troubadour Ronan Boyle, Wirral songstress Caroline England, builder turned musician Gary Edward Jones, semi-acoustic power pop trio Three Minute Hero, multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter Jody Cooper, Americana and folk-tinged duo The Southbound Attic Band, harmony-driven duo Laura&Claire, Chester University student Ben Stafford, and Scandinavian six-piece quirk-pop band Synne Eileen & the Sunbeams.
