The platform is unfunded / artist led. We suggest a £5.00 entry fee on the door, however any individuals experiencing financial hardship will not be turned away.

Sid Griffin, Calum Gilligan, Thom Morecroft – 81 Renshaw – 7:30pm
Heaven’s Gate and 81 Renshaw are proud to present, for the music loving community of Liverpool and Merseyside, the welcome return to Liverpool of US Americana legends Peter Case and Sid Griffin. When they played at 81 in May 2019 they were phenomenal and left a full house delighted and yearning for more. Well, here it is so don't miss out. This will be an amazing night of live music with two brilliant artists.
The Grammy nominated Case first drew notice in rock groups The Nerves and The Plimsouls but since 1986 Case has been a solo singer-songwriter, usually appearing alone, with a dozen solo albums in his catalogue. He has collaborated with a Who’s Who of USA notables including T-Bone Burnett, Van Dyke Parks, Roger McGuinn, The Heartbreakers, as well as David Hidalgo of Los Lobos.
British audiences know Sid Griffin from the Long Ryders and his frequent appearances on both BBC radio and TV as a pundit. Griffin has three solo albums out, the last being The Trick Is To Breathe, an album Uncut magazine named Americana Album of the Month, writing “…it is a high-water mark in a career which has always celebrated traditional American music with eloquence and boundless enthusiasm.

Court and Spark (the Joni Mitchell Songbook) – Capstone Theatre – 7:30pm
“Condemned to wires and hammers, strike every chord that you feel
That broken trees and elephant ivories conceal”.
- Joni Mitchell - Judgement of the Moon and Stars
Singer, songwriter, painter, poet, activist and voice of a generation, Joni Mitchell is an essential part of the soundtrack to the twentieth-century. She grew up with folk music in the 60s, she railed against injustice in the 70s - she turned her autobiography into song in the 80s and reinvented herself in the 90s. Court and Spark – the Joni Mitchell Songbook will take you on a musical journey that will probably mirror your own journey through life, from Ladies of the Canyon , Clouds , For the Roses , Blue and Court and Spark , to the cool, evocative sounds of The Hissing of Summer Lawns , Hejira , Mingus and Turbulent Indigo .
