There's a new monthly music night in Southport being organised by Rich Simcock who started the Mason's singarounds a few years ago. He has also run a series of concerts in Southport under the name "3 Monkeys Folk Club", featuring guests who would not normally be seen locally.
Named "Place To Be", these will be evenings of "acoustic song and music on the last Thursday of every month. Candle lit. Club-style. Relaxed". It's in the upstairs room of the Mount Pleasant, Manchester Road, Southport - map. Performers of songs, tunes and poetry are welcome and admission is free; there will be a small PA. As Rich points out, there won't be the background noise you sometimes get with pub singarounds. The first night is Thursday 25 March from 8-00pm.
It's always a pleasure to report new live music nights locally, especially as this new venture comes hot on the heels of the launch of the new Formby folk club. Do support Place To Be: it just won't be the same without you.
