There is a chance to see an up-and-coming young singer in Southport next week. Lizzie Nunnery is a singer, guitarist and writer from Maghull. At just twenty-seven she's becoming known as one of the most inventive singer songwriters of the moment. Following the release of her EP, Hungry, in 2008, she played venues and festivals across the UK, including support for J.D Souther, Little Feat, and Jim Moray. She’s made several appearances on BBC Radio, including a live performance on Radio 3. Lizzie has drawn frequent comparison with artists such as Kate Bush, Joni Mitchell and Martha Wainwright, yet her striking vocals and finely crafted songs create a performance that is all her own.
She is also an award winning playwright, with her most recent stage play "Intemperance," receiving a 5 star review in the Guardian. Her play with songs, "The Singer", was broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in November 08 and she composed the soundtrack to her short film broadcast on Channel 4 in June 2009. She contributed to the recent BBC Radio 4 Afternoon Play, “Postcards From a Cataclysm”.
Lizzie will be performing at an album launch concert to celebrate her new CD “Company Of Ghosts” in Southport at the Bothy on Thursday 25th February at 8.00 p.m. Admission is just £4, and the venue is the Park Golf Club, Park Road West, Southport, PR9 0JS. Come and see her while she’s still playing local venues.
This event is the first of a series of occasional Thursday night specials run by the Bothy, which usually meets every Sunday evening.
