Our next Liverpool Acoustic Live event is the Showcase Final for the Liverpool Acoustic Songwriting Challenge 2013. It’s taking place at the View Two Gallery on Mathew Street and will feature the eleven finalists in this year’s competition.
Each of the finalists will perform their song with an image of the work of art that inspired it projected onto the wall behind them for everyone to see. At the end of the night the Judges’ Award winner will be announced, and the Audience Favourite vote will be taken.
In addition, there will be a performance on the night from judge Kaya Herstad Carney, plus a very special secret guest.
The winners in each category will have their songs professionally recorded courtesy of Crosstown Studios.
The finalists are (in order of entry):-
Paul Robertson – Dream Dancers Dream
