A huge thank you to everyone who came to Loudhailer Acoustic last week, and through out this year – players and audience alike. This month’s night really was a bumper evening with super performances from a fabulous mix of regular and new guests. Amongst the new performers, Zach Theodorou played a superb percussion set, it was lovely to welcome John Cox back and for the first time, Olivia Rose for her debut public performance. It’s years since we’ve seen Philip Daniel Jones who played a couple of storming blues songs, and great to welcome – for the first time at Loudhailer Acoustic – Ollie Smith and the Black Bucks whose high energy songs filled the room. Together with fabulous tunes, poems and songs from our regular friends Brain Williams, Catherine Scott, Phil Friend, Dez and Cathy Allenby, Roy Kibbler, Jeff Parsons, Graham Graham Beck and the show closer, Mike Chorley it made for a night jam packed with the most amazing eclectic sounds around. So, once again, a big happy thank you to everyone who has made Loudhailer Acoustic so much fun over the last year. We’re into our sixth year of Loudhailer nights, and are having a summer break for the first time – but we’ll be back in October for sure, look out for news here: Loudhailer Acoustic Nights

In the meantime we’ve got lots coming up. First up, this weekend, Hull Folk and Maritime Festival will be a terrific celebration of Hull’s folk music and heritage.
Rich & I are looking forward to hosting the Zebedee’s Yard stage, linked to the summer long Amy Johnson Festival 2016 on Sat and Sun July 16th and 17th, 1pm til 7 pm, free entry.
Zebedee’s Yard Stage is through the arch next to Mccoy’s Coffee House – opposite the side entrance (over the water) to Princes Quay. It’s a lovely atmospheric courtyard where Trinity House School used to be. We’ve a great line up and it would be brilliant to see you there.
The whole festival will have over 70 live performances in the city centre over the weekend, singarounds, dancing, boats, spoken word, craft ales, lots of fun and a great vibe. Zebedee’s Yard is a fabulous paved square next to McCoy’s Coffee House, where Trinity House School used to be. The line up and timings are on the Amy Johnson Fest Website and full Hull folk Festival details are on the Hull Folk Festival website
So, look out for Loudhailer Acoustic in the autumn, so keep an eye on the page here for for details of the next dates etc.
Thanks again to Paul at The Back Room, a lovely music venue.
See you soon!
