Who doesn’t get the blues at the start of January? Christmas and New Year are over for another year. Our waists are wider, wallets and purses lighter, and we’re faced with the twin chores of taking down the decorations and dragging ourselves back into work…!
If that’s not enough to give you the January Blues then we don’t know what is.
But fear not, Liverpool Acoustic are here to help you Beat the January Blues with a FREE blues night at 81 Renshaw on Friday 5th January.
To make the night a little easier on the pocket all we’re asking for the poor blues men and woman performing on the night is that you make a donation into the PAY WHAT YOU FEEL bucket on the door.
Headlining is former Liverpool resident and respected bluesman Raphael Callaghan. As ‘Blue C’ along with Christine Purnell, Raphael organised regular blues events at Fort Perch Rock before moving to North Wales. Now a solo artist, Callaghan has recently launched a new album called Said And Done, and is playing his first gig back in Liverpool for a fair few years.
AL ‘BLUESMAN’ PETERS
AL is a legend on the local music scene and one of the best blues musicians around. AL plays songs about love, loss, war, politics, and youthful exuberance.
A professional guitar teacher by day, by night Jo is equally at home on a stage performing her distinctive style of blues inspired by her resonator guitar and the ups and downs of life. Jo is a previous winner of the Liverpool Acoustic Songwriting Challenge.
Doors open at 7.30pm and the music kicks off at 8.00pm with a short set from Liverpool Acoustic head honcho Graham ‘The Greens’ Holland.
Remember, this is a FREE gig with a PAY WHAT YOU FEEL donation bucket – even blues performers have to eat!
