culturepool 4th birthday do @ Above the Beaten Track
Sat, August 14, 2010 @ 2pm til 5pm (festival is from 1pm til later)
A range of local musicians we’ve worked with in the past
FREE: just turn up and enjoy!
Well it’s that time of year again when we celebrate of all things culturepool! Over the last four years culturepool has dipped into the unique melting pot of creative originality that is Liverpool: musically, artistically and culturally. After another amazing year of unique and interesting events working with fabulously talented artists we’re back with our friends from Above the Beaten Track, the one day festival championing all things alternative, marginal and local.
culturepool’s set will showcase some of the musicians we’ve worked with, and we’d like to say a huge thank-you to them for helping us to celebrate:
Tom George brings a range of pop and punky influences to his acoustic-based music. Performing solo, his energy and instinctive melodies usually entice audiences into massed singing…or whistling.
Claire Mooney has been described as a ‘radical chanteuse’. Her performances consist of self-penned political, passionate and playful songs. She’s a regular contributor to BBC radio.
Patrick Dineen has written scores for many TV and theatre productions; run a nightclub; toured with his own band and written a show that was staged at the Royal Opera House.
Paula Simms and Andy Frizell
Paula and Andy have been working and playing together for many years. Here they come together to play a classic set of favourite blues – watch out for some surprise guests!
Dan Wilson (The Cubical)
Lead singer of local legendary pysch blues monsters The Cubical, Dan Wilson’s solo material ranges from lyrically led dark acoustic ballads to stripped down Americana infused blues in the classic Cohen/Cash song writing mould.
John “The Man with the Silver Spoons” McGuirk
John is a legend on the Liverpool music scene. Whether playing in the pubs of his home town or with the Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, John shares his infectious passion for life and music through his singing and spoon playing. Back by popular and vociferous demand!
It’s also a chance to find out more about our new project, ‘Building on What We’ve Got’, as part of 2010 Year of Health and Wellbeing.
culturepool’s birthday stage (in The Courtyard, weather permitting!) is just a small part of the Above the Beaten Track festival, so stick around to enjoy the rest of the day!
