Folk legend Leon Rosselson returns to Liverpool in September
Liverpool Acoustic are absolutely thrilled to welcome back to Liverpool folk legend Leon Rosselson. A stalwart of the 1960s folk revival, Leon is an incomparable songwriter with a unique style, and a wicked sense of mischief. His songs poke fun at the preposterous, the people in power, and the state of the world. His most recent, and at the age of 81, final album ‘Where are the barricades?’ is just as powerful and entertaining as his first.
Support is provided by Esme Bridie, a 19-year-old singer- songwriter from the Wirral. Influenced by 1960’s folk artists such as Joni Mitchell and Bob Dylan, Esme has always had a love of words and imagery, and takes great pride in her lyrics. Esme is currently studying a BA Hons music degree at Leeds College of Music, which has given her the opportunity to perform in venues across Leeds as well as collaborate with like-minded musicians.
