Folk legend Leon Rosselson brings final album to Liverpool on Wednesday 14th September
On Wednesday 14th September, Liverpool Acoustic, in association with News From Nowhere, 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.
Now in his 80s, Rosselson’s public performances are rarities to be treasured. His songwriting, however, has lost none of its sharpness and wit, and his most recent – and 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 1960s 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.
Come along and join us at the Philharmonic Hall’s fabulous Music Room for an extra special evening of music from one of the folk scene’s most respected performers.
