The award-winning Liverpool Acoustic collective is set to celebrate its fifth birthday this month.

The double-award winning event was voted the best live music night of 2012 and 2013 and the organisation will hold its birthday bash on Friday 28th February at the View Two Gallery at the Cavern Quarter.

Organiser Graham Holland told JMU Journalism: “If you are a fan of good music then you will appreciate it. We like to offer that variety of music and the fantastic venue means the audience are encouraged to appreciate the great music. We run the events because we love music and want to support the local singers.”

Despite only originally being a one-off event, the gigs quickly become a local monthly occurrence that proved to be a success.

When asked about the future years of Liverpool Acoustic, Mr Holland added: “I hope we can continue to bring great music to Liverpool.”

The headline act on Friday is local musician Alun Parry a songwriter and activist, described as one of the most incisive songwriters in the region by BBC Radio Merseyside.

Supporting acts include band collective Operation Lightfoot and Joe Solo, a talented singer songwriter from Scarborough who previously won the Liverpool Acoustic songwriter competition.

Alexandra Jayne, last year’s winner of the Liverpool Acoustics songwriter competition, is also set to perform at the event.

She told JMU Journalism: “I am nervous but I always get nervous about gigs. There are so many people in the audience who appreciate your music so it’s nice to showcase it.

“Joe Solo is also performing so it’s nice to have two winners under the same roof.”

Tickets are now available from their website and cost £5 in advance or £6 on the door.
