Acoustic acts all set for Meltdown
Last updated at 09:32, Monday, 04 August 2014
ACOUSTIC Meltdown returns to Barrow this week with a trio of top unplugged acts taking to the stage.
The monthly showcase event features the best of the local scene, and this Thursday’s guests are no exception.
Topping the bill for the first time is young solo artist Danielle Messenger, performing mostly covers of well-known pop songs. The teenager was recently named runner-up in the county-wide Furness Charity Challenge.
Mark Fisher also makes an appearance. The established singer-songwriter plays a few of his own alongside stripped-down classic rock and indie hits.
Acoustic duo Swerve, featuring Robbie Jay Coplen on guitar and vocals, and Matt Southwell on cajon drum, are also making an appearance.
Organiser Dave Duffin said: “All of the performers and acts are well-known in their own right, so it looks like it's set to be a great summer night of Meltdown music.”
There will also be alternative and indie sounds in between sets.
Each Acoustic Meltdown takes place on the first Thursday of every month at Bar Five, in Dalkeith Street. Shows start at 8pm and entrance is free.
