The Liverpool Acoustic Live monthly showcase returns to Mathew Street this coming Friday 27th May 2016 for a fantastic evening of top-class acoustic music in the intimate setting of the View Two Gallery‘s top floor performance space.
Headlining the show are Jenny Wolsk Bain and Gary Croth, better known as The Squirrel Hillbillies. This Pennsylvania duo delight audiences across their home state and around the world performing their eclectic mix of folk, country and blues in a style they describe as ‘rabidly social and clawingly curious’! You’d be nuts to miss them!
As an added bonus, The Squirrel Hillbillies will be appearing on Billy Butler’s BBC Radio Merseyside show on Friday 27th May from 2.00pm, so why not tune in and listen?
Special guest on the night is popular Protest-Pagan singer-songwriter James J Turner whose cracking new album Spirit, Soul and a Handful of Mud is a fine follow-up to 2012’s How Could We Be Wrong.
Opening the show is The Grateful Fred Ukulele Trio fronted by Grateful Fred Roots and Acoustic Night head honcho Colin Maddocks, along with Pete McPartland (The Big I Am) and Vince Gillespie. Trust us when we say you won’t be disappointed!
At the end of the working week, there’s nothing quite like a good night out listening to fantastic, original music in a warm and inviting venue. Come on down and experience it for yourself, and help support live music in one of the greatest music cities in the world.

Theme: King of the Faeries by Andrew Ellis from his CD Midnight On The WaterARTIST INFORMATION THE SQUIRREL HILLBILLIES
From deep within the urban forest of Pittsburgh’s East End, the Squirrel Hillbillies often emerge to share their eclectic mix of folk, country and blues. Rabidly social and clawingly curious, they relish opportunities to interact with diverse audiences. They have performed more than 200 shows, including appearances at the Three Rivers Arts Festival in Pittsburgh and the Leigh Folk Festival in England.
Through a collaborative, nonlinear songwriting process, duo partners Jenny Wolsk Bain and Gary Crouth draw from personal experiences, third-hand stories, and vivid imaginations to craft songs that are unpredictable and quirky yet widely accessible. Their CDs have gained radio play on stations across the US and around the world.
JAMES J TURNER
James J Turner’s much anticipated new album Spirit, Soul and a Handful of Mud is out now via Townsend Music. This is James’s third solo studio album, and was recorded in the same Liverpool studio as his critically acclaimed second solo album “How Could We Be Wrong” which was called the “best folk-rock album of 2012” earning him over 20,000 fans plus lots of UK and European radio play (including mainstream and regional BBC stations), live radio sessions and key live gigs including Witchfest – the biggest Pagan Festival in the world – in London in November 2015.
James has a unique solo style and is one of the most potent artists to emerge from the Acoustic-Pagan music scene in recent years. A huge voice and dextrous guitar playing provide the backbone to his passionate, carefully crafted songs. In recent years James has deliberated to consciously follow a Druidic – Bardic path; he is a member of OBOD, who are the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids. The music on James’s new album is therefore imbued with his empathy for the human struggle, complex spiritual landscapes, plus a deep concern for the environment. Also on the new album are powerful and passionate vocal performances; characteristic James J Turner songs with strident lyrics, catchy melodies, anthemic choruses and strong hooks; plus first class musicianship from James (vocals / acoustic guitar / whistles / mandolin / shruti box), Vicky Mutch (cello), Amy Chalmers (fiddle /backing vocals), Etienne Girard (bass guitar), Jay Hughes (drums / cajon) and Henry Priestman (accordion).THE GRATEFUL FRED UKULELE TRIO
gratefulfredukuleletrio.co.uk Formed from the embers of Grateful Fred’s Americana, Roots and Acoustic Nights in Formby and Southport the Grateful Fred Ukulele Trio perform original songs on two ukuleles and a ukulele bass. Combining the talents (?) of Vincent Gillespie, Pete McPartland and Colin Maddocks you’ll either love ’em or hate ’em. If you love ’em you might want to take home a copy of the new CD, “Further Down The Road”. If you hate ’em…then you wont’.
If you get the chance, please support your local artists by joining their mailing lists, liking their facebook pages, following them on twitter, leaving them comments, going to their gigs, and buying their music direct from them where possible. The Liverpool Acoustic Spotlight is produced and presented by Graham Holland and Stuart Todd on behalf of the Liverpool Acoustic website, and is a proud member of the Association of Music Podcasting. The theme music alternates between King of the Faeries by Andrew Ellis from his CD Midnight On The Water, and Solid Ground by Neil Campbell.
The post Preview: Liverpool Acoustic Live – Friday 27th May 2016 appeared first on Liverpool Acoustic.
With perhaps one of the best album covers seen in recent years, Hungarian ambient post-rock artist returned in September of this past year with his full length album, The Pleiades. Its a beautiful voyage though the acoustic space-rock landscapes, filled with wonderful discoveries such as the atmospheric sounds of Maia and another favorite near the tail, Asterope.

Victory Kicks was formed originally as a home recording project by songwriter John Sibley, the band records & releases all its music independently.
Having listened to the whole album, we can report that while this still has the DIY vibe of previous works, it has a distinctly more polished finish. It will be well worth waiting for the formal release, so bookmark this page and head to BandCamp on June 6th, or head to SoundCloud now to listen to some older recordings.
Counterfly is Lorenzo Olivieri, an Italian producer currently based out of Berlin who has just issued his debut five-track release “Glazed” via the label Broque. On this new EP he combines jazz and classical influences with IDM and ambient structures in a way which is as multilayered as it is well-balanced.
The beautifully constructed and almost frantically paced yet soothing sounds of City of Thoughts appears to be about the hustle/bustle of the city, with a video additionally put together giving a great visual backdrop for the music. Check out the embed below.

This week’s show is live once again, and while it doesn’t feature too much in the way of new music, it did allow me to go digging in the crates — and by “crates”, of course, I mean “my MP3 collection” — and find some good tunes to play and a few stories to tell.
Don’t forget to tune in this Sunday at 3:00 PM ET (8:00 PM GMT) on WHUP FM 104.7 in Hillsborough, NC, or online at: http://whupfm.org/

Clocking in at just over two minutes, the band’s latest offering portrays the decay of guitar music in a country dominated by grey skies and pop music, with the yacht punkers from Amsterdam screaming for the sun-spilled beaches of St. Tropez.
Mixed by Grammy Award winning producer Rob Schnapf (Beck, Fidlar, The Garden, Kurt Vile), I Wanna Live In St. Tropez follows on from their 2015 EP (mixed by Spring King’s Tarek Musa) which attracted critical acclaim from tastemakers online and airplay on Radio 1 and XFM.
With the band continuing to develop an impressive live reputation, armed with their new sound and shows in Brighton (The Great Escape) and London (Full-Time Freaks Weekender) over the next few weeks, St. Tropez are well and truly ready for the summer.
St. Tropez’ I Wanna Live In St. Tropez is released on 13th May and will be available to purchase on iTunes and Spotify. [via Super Cat PR]

If the planetary displays haven’t caught your attention this month, a blue moon arrives in a few short days on May 21st with a red planetary cherry on top sharing the skies. While the crow moon usually arrives in March heralding the Spring, it still feels like Winter here, so maybe this will snap the cold trend. Because of this upcoming “Flower Moon” we thought it made sense to feature a exceptional track from Minneapolis art folk band, FOX & COYOTE, notably from their 2013 nine-track LP, If We Stay.
Another new solid EP, Boardinghouse, just arrived in the not too distant past, so be sure to pick up a copy through BC below and enjoy a great soundtrack to the upcoming rarity evening.Crow Moon by Fox & Coyote is licensed under a Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported (CC BY-NC-SA 3.0) License Crow Moon HypeMachine

They also say this of themselves: “Imagine your head’s stuck in the belly of an oud, run through a battery of effect pedals, then amplified to hell with old tube cabinets, and you might get close to grasping what racket Tigers of the West have been making in their rehearsal shack.”

- What does that mean? by Solonaut Submited by Peter Clitheroe of Suffolk 'n' Cool
Soulonaut is a prolific solo producer based in the North-west of England Foof Records has released his debut album 'Out Of Nowhere', which was intended to be a mere 4-track EP before rapidly expanding into a full-length album. In 2014 we also released his EP 'Own Devices', featuring live-performed arrangements, produced purely on analogue equipment. Since then, he has been honing the art of producing deep Detroit-influenced techno.
Comprising of Harry Nicoll (vocals/guitar), Maxwell Oakley (drums) and Anthus Davis (bass), the band formed in the autumn of 2015 and developed a formidable live set, having already supported fellow Kent band Slaves at the end of last year.
Their performances caught the attention of producer Jolyon Thomas (Slaves, Daughter) at the start of 2016 and led to the band recording first releases Four Walls and New Home with him before heading out on a series of tour dates, with their single launch party taking place at The Sussex Arms basement in Tunbridge Wells on 14th May.
