Liverpool Folk & Roots Festival
Thanks to all who came out last night for the Roy Bailey gig at the Liverpool Folk and Roots Festival.
Congratulations to The Random Family for curating such a great new festival. (You can catch their festival gig on Saturday at St Brides Church in Percy Street).
Big thanks too to Tony Mulhearn for a fascinating overview of Liverpool’s radical past that took us into the middle of the 19th century.
And of course to the wonderful Roy Bailey who was as enchanting as ever.
The Festival continues until Saturday so make sure you catch the remainder of it. You can see what’s on here.
One that stands out in particular is the event at The Palm House in Sefton Park on Thursday night at 7.30pm, entitled Twilight Garden Party, run by the good people of Almanac Folk.
It is a night of song, story telling, spoken word and live illustration in the beautiful surroundings of Sefton Park Palm House.
It features the excellent Lizzie Nunnery, as well as Atlantic Massey, who blew away the 2008 Working Class Music Festival when working as The Prelude.
With singer/harpist Nula Mathers, and singer Andy Hickie also on the bill, it’s one not to be missed.
