LIMF Summer Jam – Monday

Events, Gigs 1 Sep 15

Holy cow what a weekend. I think LIMF this year has felt a lot tighter. The Academy stage was wonderful and I think the loudest stage in town. Real strong vibes there. The Bandstand was just lovely as usual. If I had to pick a stage to camp out by with beer, food and mates it would be the It’s Liverpool stage. Constantly great. A real joy.

I’ve loved this years events. So much has happened. The tribute to Gill Scott-Heron just a few days ago feels like months ago. There’s been a lot going on since then. read more

LIMF SummerJam Sunday

Events, Gigs 31 Aug 15

Man. What a day. Highlight was definitely the Its Liverpool stage. Great crowd. Great tunes. If I wasn’t working I’d be chilling there. If you’re about at LIMF today setup camp down there. The Real Thing were fantastic fun as were Herstory who had a guest appearance by Jayne Casey. The Academy and Bandstand stage had some great acts on too. I didn’t get to see much of the Central stage but thats on my list today. The great thing about LIMF is theres as much and as little as to do as you want. Want to sit in the park eating nice food and drinking a cider with your mates? Sorted. Want to jump around to thumping bass? Sorted. Want to sit on the beach with your kids? Yer that too. It’s such a good festival. read more

LIMF – Bluebird at the Bluecoat

Events, Gigs 30 Aug 15

I’m not a Nashville country music kinda guy so I wasn’t aware of the Bluebird Cafe until last night. If I’m ever in town I’ll be stopping by. Last nights gig at the Bluecoat involved a spiritual recreation of the Bluebird cafe with beautiful music and conversation about music, creativity and life. I loved it. It was such an intimate heart warming gig. I learnt, or at least was reminded, that you need to stretch your “show up” muscle. That every “no” gets you one step closer to a “yes”. Most of all I learnt just how warm and soothing country music can be. read more

LIMF DJs at the Palm House

Events, Gigs 29 Aug 15

LIMF 2nd night. As I said in my last post its great we have such amazing spaces for music. Some great DJs on last night. I was really hoping Norman ‘the cat’ Killen, who used DJ in the original Eric’s, would do a set. He didn’t but the main guys played some awesome tunes.

LIMF 2015 Day 1

Events, Gigs 28 Aug 15

The Liverpool International Music Festival, LIMF, is warming up for August Bank Holiday. Last night saw the first major event in the shape of a tribute to Gil Scott-Heron with Aswad, the Christians, Sophia Ben-Yousef, Talib Kweli and the brilliant Craig Charles. I do love that we have these epic spaces for music events in the city.

The festival is huge with events on all the way through to Monday night. I’m covering a lot of it along with Mark McNulty so stay tuned to our sites for coverage over the weekend. read more

Bank Holiday Monday Summer Jam at LIMFestival

Events, Gigs 28 Aug 14

The final day of LIMF. It rained. I don’t think anyone cared as the music kept on playing. Overall LIMF was a great few days. My highlights were definitely The Lightning Seeds playing with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and Seven Street’s ‘You Are Here’ piece with Bill Ryder Jones, Kof, Archangel, Moonwraith and Moongai.

Sunday Summer Jam at LIMF

Events, Gigs 25 Aug 14

Another beautiful day in Sefton Park. I couldn’t pick a favourite moment. I really couldn’t. It’s part blur, part amazing. So much happened. What I clearly remember though is the setting. Sefton Park is simply beautiful and a great place to host all these stages as it forces you to walk around it.

Last day. I’ve got my DMs on and spare socks. Lets hope they were wrong about the weather.

LIMF Summer Jam Saturday

Events, Gigs 24 Aug 14

The sun came out! Everyone was dancing, partying and the sun actually came out. I think I got sunburn. What a day. I think my highlight was Swindle on the International Emerging Artist Stage. A mix of DnB and jazz. Funky stuff. So many artists on though. Kinda wish I could see them all but there’s too much choice. 5 stages on Saturday! Mental. Rock on Sunday!

LIMFestival with the Philharmonic and fireworks

Events, Featured, Gigs 20 Aug 14

LIMFestival returns this weekend with a cracking line up. The Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra along with Ian Broudie and the Lightning seeds will open the weekend on Friday. That in itself will be a mind blowing event. The weekend event has Shaggy. Shaggy! Nuff said.

There’s also the Seven Streets ‘You are here‘ gig at the Palm House. £5 / ticket to see an audio exploration of what home means to you featuring musicians from France, Russia and the UK.

I didn’t get to see much of it last year due to other commitments so I’m super happy to have been commissioned to photograph the entire weekend this year. It’s going to be a lot of fun. read more
