Lost weekend (Nov 2-4)

Unthanks and shipbuilding, Last Choirs Standing, vinyl hootenanny and Sunday jazz

Published on November 2nd 2012.

Lost weekend (Nov 2-4)

Shipping News
THE moving  story of the rise and fall of the shipbuilding industry - and its impact on the lives of so many - is not lost on people around here.

That is why a 60 minute film, Songs from the Shipyards, is touring places with historic shipbuilding links  and tomorrow night (Sat) there is a special screening in Liverpool at the Epstein Theatre. For the mesmerising and quite wonderful folk band Unthanks are in town and they will  accompany the film by combining the folk songbook of the shipyard industry with new compositions.

Commissioned by and first performed at Tyneside Cinema, Songs from the Shipyards is a beautiful and moving illustration of Britain’s industrial journey in microcosm. The film performance is a unique event that brings archive film of the UK’s shipyards and rivers to vibrant new life, re-visualised by internationally acclaimed filmmaker Richard Fenwick.

*Songs from the Shipyards, Saturday 3rd November, 6pm. The Epstein Theatre, Hanover Street, Liverpool, L1 3DZ. Tix: £12.50 from the box office on  0844 888 4411

Choired for sound
After setting the stage alight during BBC’s Last Choir Standing, Liverpool's Sense of Sound Singers and Welsh Choir Ysgol Glanaethwy are reuniting for a special concert this weekend at Liverpool's Anglican Cathedral.

Before Last Choir Standing both choirs had an impeccable pedigree for international award winning performance.

Sense of Sound Singers, led by Jennifer John, are one of the UK’s most successful, dynamic and contemporary choirs having collaborated with artists such as Brian Eno, Imogen Heap, Damon Albarn and Paco Pena.

Equally, Ysgol Glanaethwy are regular Eisteddfod winners and have attended and won honours at festivals all over the shop.

The choirs will each perform highlights from their extensive repertoire from classical to modern and will even perform some numbers together in both English and Welsh. Two Choirs Standing is an evening of unprecedented vocal performances that cannot be missed!

Two Choirs Standing, Sat Nov 3, Liverpool Anglican Cathedral, 7.30pm
Tickets: £16.50 and £14.50. Box Office: 0844 8000 410 Online or

Perri-And-Neil Soulful Sunday
If she hasn't lost her considerable voice by then (she won't have), Sense of Sound member Perri Alleyne-Hughes will be taking part in a special Sunday evening performance with oppo Neil Campbelll at Parr Street.

The event features Ogo, our lovely talented friend and special guest. 

This will be the first outing of the new line up of the Perri and Neil Quartet with Perri Alleyne-Hughes - vocals, Neil Campbell - classical guitar, Roger Gardiner - double bass and 7 string electric bass, Colin Lamont - drums.

Get into the groove
It's like an indoor car boot sale for fans of vinyl - you know, that stuff that used to occupy your shelves, stir conversation and make you really value your music purchases in the days before record companies made you buy it all again as "indestructable" CDs and then again as MP3.

You all fell for it, but analogue has a warmth of sound lost to digital.

You can play, sell, trade, buy and talk vinyl this Saturday afternoon with a fair for all those who love the black stuff. Bring one box on the day or book a free stall.  Organisers say: "We'll also have open decks, so feel free to spin us a couple of killer tunes on vinyl."

It's not all nostalgia either, or anoraky men of a certain age. Our chums at The Music Consortium - the record shop at the top of Bold Street - tell us that young women and teenage girls account for a substantial number of their customers.

*Liverpool record Fair and Vinyl Day, Sound Food And Drink, 52 Duke Street, L1 5AA.  Midday to 5.00pm. Free entry and free to sell.
