Roxanne de Bastion
Friday, March 23rd, 2012 at 8:00pm
Liverpool Acoustic is proud to present another evening of fantastic acoustic music from across the city and around the world.
Jimmy Rae formed The Reverb Brothers with Colin Free in 1982 and went on to tour the UK and Europe with the likes of Joe Jackson and OMD. After the duo split Jimmy spent 15 years in the music industry wilderness before launching his solo career and forming the group The Firewalkers. His album Deliverance has received nothing but fine reviews, and we're looking forward to enjoying some of that Jimmy Rae country-tinged Americana goodness at the View Two Gallery.
For Roxanne de Bastion there is no plan B. Performing since she was 10 and composing since she was 15 years old, she is a musician, heart and soul. Roxanne moved to the UK from her home town of Berlin in 2007. She had her guitar, a suitcase and a one-way ticket. In the 5 years since then, she has gone from playing open mic nights to headlining some of England’s most prestigious venues such as the 100 Club, the Cavern Club and the Barfly. Together with her songs, it is Roxanne’s remarkable stage presence and spirit that captures ears and hearts – her live shows are magically dynamic and engaging, invariably concluding with a mass sing-along.
Celine Carroll made her first appearance at Liverpool Acoustic's Irish Festival gig in October 2010 where she turned a room full of audience members into a room full of new fans. Hailing from the fair city of Dublin, Celine cites her biggest influences as Paul McCartney, Dusty Springfield, and Elvis. Her songwriting delves into a rich vein, mining affairs of the heart to create a collection of melodic gems such as those filling her album Such A Beautiful Light. We're delighted to have Celine back, and hope that she decides to play our grand piano again.
At age 14 Dominic Dunn was not only playing gigs right across the city but was also promoting his own music nights supporting under age musicians. Now 15, Dominic is definitely a young talent to watch our for whether playing solo or with his band.
Doors open at 8pm and the music runs from 8.30pm to just after 11pm. Unfortunately there is no disabled access as the venue is on the third floor of the gallery. There is a full bar, and it's an over 14 event.
Tickets are £5 in advance and £6 on the door. This is set to be another popular night and demand for tickets will be high. Tickets will go on general sale from Friday 24th February and will be available from http://wegottickets.com/liverpoolacoustic
