Future music star to perform at Central Library

Hotly tipped young musician, Nick Mulvey will be playing a special gig in Liverpool next month.

On Sunday 9 March Nick Mulvey will play the only library venue as part of his official tour.

In collaboration with the hugely successful Get it Loud in Libraries (GiLiL) initiative, Nick will bring Liverpool’s Central library to life with his unique latin and folk sound.

Currently riding high in the BBC’s top 15 to watch in 2014, and tipped to end up in the top five, Nick will be performing a number of songs including his new single Cucurucu which will be released on 3 March and will be followed by his debut album due later in Spring.

Liverpool City Council’s Assistant Mayor and cabinet member for culture and tourism, Councillor Wendy Simon, said: “The launch of the Get it Loud in Libraries in November was a great success and really opened up the idea of doing something more in our wonderful space.

“It is great to see Central Library being used for such diverse events that inspire and engage young people.

“It is fitting that Liverpool, a city synonymous with music, is giving new musicians a platform to showcase their talents.

“I hope this will encourage young and old to come along to the Library and enjoy the music we have on offer, this is for one night only and is definitely not to be missed.”

The GiLiL project connects young people with libraries with no bars and or accompanying license restrictions it allows all ages a chance to see great bands playing live in a real gig environment at an age where they would normally be restricted to big-venue pop concerts and the occasional festival. It creates audiences for libraries and exposes more people to public libraries generally.

Fans often visit the library from all over the country and from abroad to experience a gig in a library with their favourite acts and so Loud in Libraries supports local cultural tourism as well as everything else.

Events are delivered as part of a programme of developing youth audiences and future live activity will encourage young people to develop their creative and music industry skills in a supportive mentoring environment whilst also exposing them to the most exciting new music talent. The programme stages intimate gigs in public libraries all across the North West.

Tickets are £7 and can be bought at www.getitloudinlibraries.com/tickets. Doors open at 7.30pm.
