When someone says ‘Brazil’ what springs to mind? Football? Carnival? Samba? Well at Liverpool Acoustic you won’t be surprised to hear we think of music. In particular we think of brilliant Brazilian João Terra who’s been wowing the regulars at our weekly Tuesday Tunes open mic ever since he first rolled into town.
João Terra will be headlining the next Liverpool Acoustic Live on the evening of Friday 3rd November 2017 at our cosy new venue 81 Renshaw.
Supporting João on the night will be blues from Persefomania, the musical vehicle for young French blues musician Pierre Mre. Describing himself as a One Man Blues Band, Persefomania takes us through the old blues era, with his open tuning and bottleneck play.
Completing the lineup is talented 15 year old singer-songwriter Megan-Louise who already has a string of TV, radio and festival appearances to her name. She currently recording her debut EP and is looking forward to sharing her new songs with the world.
Book your tickets now for a fantastic night of original, live music from Brazil, France and jolly old England!

While travelling in summer 2016 Pierre discovered the open tuning, and coming back home, after a blues duo experience decided to continue as a Blues One Man Band called Persefomania. He is currently immersed into the old blues sound playing with an open tuning and a bottleneck.
Originally from Lille, Pierre started to play live in pubs during the winter. After finding his music was appreciated over there he decided to move early January 2017 to Liverpool to get some experience. After meeting Rory Ballantyne he recorded his first EP “On the way to Exarchia” at his studio, The Vault Liverpool.
Still playing the blues as Persefomania he’s looking to start a new project as a duo and probably record a second EP before 2018.
Highlighted as “one to watch” by music magazine Buz, Megan Louise is a 15 year old Contemporary Country Singer Songwriter and Guitarist from Wirral.
Megan is currently busy writing and recording ahead of her first EP release later this year. Her dream is one of making contemporary country music mainstream and popular across the generations.
With lyrics, vocal control and performance skill well beyond her years she already has varied and numerous TV, radio and Festival Performances under her belt, having started honing her skills from the age of 9, when she started writing and playing at open mic nights to gain valuable experience.
Now an accomplished singer, song writer and guitarist who promises wonderful things with her unique country voice and own brand of Contemporary Country, Megan Louise is definitely one to watch!
