Acoustic show celebrates 30 not out
Last updated at 21:32, Tuesday, 02 September 2014
ONE of the area’s most popular unplugged showcases is back for its monthly slot this week.
On Thursday, Acoustic Meltdown hits 30 – that’s months, not years – and marks the landmark event with one of its most popular headliners, at Bar Five in Barrow.
Jamie Bosanko will be playing a solo acoustic slot, with his well chosen mix of original material and cover versions.
The former Magic Toyshop guitarist has built a solid reputation over the past three years since going it alone, and is now in the studio working on tracks for his second release.
Expect new material alongside his own, already well-known numbers such as Bi-Polar Bear and Falling Into You, and a handful of covers from the likes of Tom Petty.
South Lakes pop rock band The Orchid Hunters – formerly Blunt Truth – also make an appearance. Their usual funky, upbeat set stripped back for the occasion, will give a more laidback feel than normal.
The band recently played at Kendal Calling, but have since reduced to a trio. The Barrow date will be the first opportunity to hear the new material they’ve been working on over the summer.
Duo Freshman have featured on the Meltdown many times over the past two years, and open the show with a set of up-tempo indie and folk rock numbers.
There will also be alternative and indie sounds inbetween 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.
