Get it Loud at Central Library

LIVERPOOL'S Central Library will be centre stage for 3 live music acts; in October 2016, with 2 of the performances already sold out.  It is part of the Get it Loud in Libraries festival, an award winning project delivering wow factor gigs in libraries across the North West.

On Sunday, 16 October 2016, London based 3 piece 'Magnetic North' will be performing a sell out show at 8pm. The group will be performing tracks from their new concept album:- 'Prospect' of Skelmersdale. They will be supported by Liverpool screenwriter and children's novelist Frank Cottrell Boyce, who will be reflecting on his memories of the new Town, which was built in the 1960's.

On Sunday, 23 October 2016, American singer-songwriter Amanda Palmer, who rose to prominence with the Dresden Dolls; will perform to a full house.

Tickets are still available for a gig, on Saturday, 29 October 2016, by acoustic and electronic music composer, producer and performer Anna Meredith. Her music has been performed everywhere from the BBC Last Night of the Proms to PRADA and Fendi fashion campaigns, numerous films, installations and documentaries, pop festivals, clubs and classical concert halls worldwide and broadcast on BBC Radio 1, 2, 3, 4 and 6 Music. Assistant Mayor and cabinet member for culture and tourism, Councillor Wendy Simon, said:- "Get it Loud in Libraries is a chance to see music being performed in a location where you wouldn't normally expect to see it.  It is fantastic to see our venues being used for some great and unusual events and performances. Liverpool has a long and successful musical history so our venues are ideal platforms for new musicians wanting to showcase their talents."

Recent performances at Central Library as part of Get it Loud in Libraries have included Grammy award nominated alternative rock band Wolf Alice and folk singer

songwriter Frank Turner. The shows increase access for new users, strengthen the cultural capaCity of the library and allow young people to develop new digital skills working with the artists on stage. Digital skills and media training workshops will be held for young people between the ages 14 and 25 before each gig.
