Liverpool Acoustic presents a double headline show with Little Sparrow and Elfin Bow each playing a full set with no support.
Tickets are £12 (£10 concessions) from liverpoolphil.com
Doors open at 7pm, music starts at 8pm.
As captivating to watch as she is to listen to, Little Sparrow’s beautifully emotive use of expression mirrors the sincerity of her delivery, making her someone not to be missed. Her delicately crafted folk songs are created with a combination of flawless vocals, strings, guitars, percussion and tender harmonies.
Manchester singer-songwriter Katie Ware adopted the name Little Sparrow as she felt it characteristic of the sound she had developed and the direction in which she wished to travel. Drawing upon influences as diverse as Kate Bush,
All About Eve and PJ Harvey she creates songs that are filled with a blend of styles, woven into the colourful tapestry of her music, often with a mysterious fairy tale quality.
Voted ‘Favourite Artist of 2016’ by Laurel Canyon Music, Little Sparrow is a firm Liverpool Acoustic favourite who takes listeners on a journey that touches upon every emotion, from heart-breaking sadness to uplifting joy.
Elfin Bow’s music has been described as a fairy tale experience; pastoral psych-folk with an undercurrent of electronic ambience. With imagery that blends her twin passions of music and art, her songs and stage presence exude colour, charisma and a gentle charm. Her self-titled debut album was released in March with a live session on BBC Radio Wales and a spectacular sold-out launch in the Epstein Theatre, Liverpool. Elfin Bow has been described by Shindig Magazine as, ‘lyrically astute and melodically inventive,’ and by Fatea Magazine as ‘a rising star of the modern folk world,’ and ‘one to watch in 2017.’
If music is a journey of discovery to be savoured and enjoyed, then Elfin Bow is carving out her own exciting and unique path and loving every moment. With sounds reminiscent of Sandy Denny, Kate Bush and Pink Floyd, she loves to pen her own songs as well as collecting jewels from the musical history books to reinterpret in her own way, playing guitar, mandolin, violin and piano.
Elfin Bow has been described as a ‘juggernaut’ of passion, energy and drive – an essential quality for any modern musician – and whilst her presence may be gentle, she isn’t launching her music on the world with anything other than a loud, and very artistic, roar.
“An album that gets the mind thinking, the body moving and the spirit soaring.” Neil King, Fatea Magazine
